While many Downton Abbey loyalists are still coping with the season 3 loss of Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), they may not have much of a chance to properly mourn, as the show is set to be bringing a romantic replacement, or two.

Although it seems a little quick for Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) to be moving on after her hubby's deadly auto accident, one must keep in mind that the series will be picking six months ahead of its tear-jerking Christmas special to cap off season 3.

A new character by the name of Lord Anthony Gillingham (Tom Cullen) was recently revealed to be playing Mary's future love interest. However, a British-American drama fan site, Downton Abbey Addicts stated that Charlie Blake (Julian Ovenden) is another handsome aristocrat that will be coveting Mary.

Nonetheless, there has been no word yet on whether the single mother will be choosing either one of them.

In other recent casting news, Downton Abbey is currently searching for an actor to don the role of musician Jack Ross as part of a storyline tied to 1920s race relations.

The Sun previously reported that the casting notes from the show were sent to actors' agents earlier in February that described the Jack character as "25-30. A musician (singer) at an exclusive club in the 20s. He's black and very handsome. A real man (not a boy) with charm and charisma."

The character bio also goes on to state that whoever lands the role should "ideally be able to sing brilliantly. Overall he should be a very attractive man with a certain wow factor."

Sir John Bullock, a party-loving man, is also a new role in fruition for the upcoming season.

Downton Abbey is slated to make its return for season four in September 2013.
