Downton Abbey fans, rejoice! The first full-length trailer for the upcoming Downton Abbey movie is out – and from the looks of it, the King and Queen of England will be paying them a visit, when the movie hits theaters this September.

The follow up film to the wildly popular PBS series, set from 1912-1926, picks up a year later in 1927 – as Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) receives a letter informing him of an impending visit by King George V and Queen Mary for a royal luncheon, parade and dinner. Get ready, Downton – the royals are coming!

Four years after the original series ended, nearly the entire cast is back – with the exception of Lily James, who’s been busy with her own film career. (Her new Beatles-themed rom-com Yesterday hits theaters June 28th.)

The trailer poses so many questions – will Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) actually leave Downton? Will retired butler Mr. Carson be able return to work? Will under-butler Thomas Barrow find a boyfriend? And perhaps most importantly, will the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) insult everyone (including the King and Queen) in the process?

Downton Abbey hits theaters September 20th.
