Hemera/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — The ratings for the season finale of Downton Abbey weren’t shabby.

The third-season finale, which aired Sunday night on PBS, was seen by 8.2 million viewers, according to Variety.  It’s the largest U.S. audience to date for the British drama, and a sizable increase from the 5.4 million who watched the second-season finale last February.

The latest season culminated with a shocking ending that we won’t spoil for you, in case you’re a fan who isn’t caught up yet.

A fourth season of Downton Abbey is planned.
