You miss them dearly. You can barely live without them. You saw them on a weekly basis and you counted on them for drama, intrigue, revenge, laughter and even British etiquette lessons. And now they’re painfully absent from your life.

Fans have been pining for the new season of Downton Abbey for months, so SiriusXM gave them a little preview when a handful of cast members from the BBC show stopped by our New York City studios for an exclusive SiriusXM Town Hall with Entertainment Weekly Radio hosted by EW editor Jess Cagle. The cast gave a behind-the-scenes look at filming the show and how characters will adjust to some big changes in the Crawley family this season.

Town Hall guests included Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham), Laura Carmichael (Edith Crawley), Rob James-Collier (Thomas Barrow), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), Phyllis Logan (Mrs. Hughes), and Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore). So pour some tea and nibble on some crumpets while you enjoy this exclusive sneak peek into Downton’s future. If that’s not enough, you won’t have to wait much longer for more—the US premiere of season 4 is coming on January 5, 2014 on PBS Masterpiece.

*Note to fans: If you’re still catching up on season 3, be warned, there are definitely spoilers in these videos!
