Photo Flash: New Photos from DOWNTON ABBEY's Season 5 Reveal Time Jump in Store
Included in the batch is a First Look at the next generation of Downton residents, George and Sybbie. The site shares, "The dear children of Downton Abbey are growing up. We are most delighted to introduce Oliver and Zac Barker who will play Master George Crawley, and Fifi Hart who will play Miss Sybbie Branson in the upcoming new series.It seems like only yesterday that they were just babies!"
The photos of the toddlers reveal that the fifth season will feature a significant time jump, as it was announced at the July Television Critics Association press tour that the story would pick up six months after the events of the previous season. The new photos showing older child actors in the roles makes it quite obvious that some time traveling will be involved during the season.
Season 5 of "Downton Abbey" will premiere in the U.S. on Jan. 4 on PBS.
