Dan Stevens Not Returning to 'Downton Abbey' Season Four

After some recent speculation, it has been confirmed that Dan Stevens will not return to his character Matthew Crawley in the hit show Downton Abbey for its fourth season, Britain’s The Telegraph reports.

“We were always optioned for three years,” the 30-year-old actor said about the show, which will resume filming this winter. “And when that came up it was a very difficult decision. But it felt like a good time to take stock, to take a moment. From a personal point of view, I wanted a chance to do other things.”

“It is a very monopolising job. So there is a strange sense of liberation at the same time as great sadness because I am very, very fond of the show and always will be,” Dan added.
