Staying Alive: Just-Renewed 'Downton Abbey' And Dowager Countess

Good news for fans of "Downton Abbey": the show was just renewed for a fourth season on U.K. TV network ITV. And show creator Julian Fellowes says Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess Violet Crawley -- for many viewers, "Downtown'"s highlight -- will not be killed off this season. In fact, even if Smith wanted to leave the show, Fellowes says, he would plot it so she could return: in that case, Violet would be sent off "to live by the sea."

Violet is going to live by the sea in case Maggie changes her mind,' he said.
