    Are you having Downton Abbey withdrawal? Have you been setting the table perfectly every single night, just waiting for Carson to chide you for a misplaced fork? Fear not, because Downton is just about back.

    After a Carson-centric trailer this summer and that little water bottle mishap (whoops!), all has been fairly quiet on the Downton front as of late.

    Luckily, we've unearthed some new information ahead of tomorrow night's season five premiere that every Downton fan needs to know.

    Unfortunately, our show intel does not indicate that George Clooney will be joining the Grantham family full-time. There are, however, three brand new faces joining the cast that you should definitely get to know.

    Click through to find out who they are and what brings them to Downton, as explained by show creator Julian Fellowes. (Don't worry: We won't reveal Lady Mary's fate or any serious spoilers.)
