Warning: The links in this post contain spoilers for the upcoming third season of "Downton Abbey."
Dan Stevens, who plays the upwardly mobile Matthew Crawley on Brit hit "Downton Abbey," will not return for an upcoming fourth season. Stevens' departure doesn't come as a total shock to "Downton" diehards. His departure was rumored when season three began shooting.
The show, which recently wrapped up its third season in England, will begin its U.S. run on January 6 on PBS.
