By Michael Gioia
Dan Stevens, the star of "Downton Abbey" who made his Broadway debut this season in The Heiress, will not return to the popular television series for the show's fourth season, according to Deadline.com.
"Downton Abbey," which features Stevens as Matthew Crawley, ended its third season on the U.K.'s ITV in November. A Christmas special that aired last night in the U.K. explained the character's exit.
The third season of "Downton Abbey" will begin airing Jan. 6, 2013, in the U.S. on PBS, and the fourth season will begin shooting in the U.K. this winter.
