Julian Fellowes called it a day with the sixth season of Downton Abbey, leaving him free to work on a new project.

We received a first look at the trailer for his upcoming period drama Doctor Thorne just two months ago. The three-part series is based on Anthony Trollope’s 1858 novel by the same name, starring Tom Hollander in the title role, as well as other familiar faces like Ian McShane and Rebecca Front.

But, of course, it makes viewers wonder, “Will Doctor Thorne make its way to the U.S.?”

And the answer is: yes.

The series will be available on Amazon Prime as of May 20, reports

If you missed it, here’s a look at the trailer:

The story follows Dr. Thorne (Hollander), who lives with his penniless niece Mary (Stefanie Martini). Front takes on the role of Lady Arabella, who is aghast at the thought of her son (Harry Richardson) falling for Mary.

Tom Hollander currently stars in AMC’s The Night Manager as Richard Roper’s (Hugh Laurie) shifty, right-hand man Lance Corkoran. We can also look for him in Tulip Fever, hitting U.S. theaters on July 15. If you’d like to catch up with Front, she was just spotted in the TV mini-series War & Peace, opposite Lily James and James Norton. McShane is currently filming American Gods, set to star as Mr. Wednesday in the ten-part series, releasing in 2017.

Does this new series take the edge off Downton withdrawal a bit?
