600 Downton Abbey fans got a sneak peek of the show's final season at the WKAR studios on Michigan State University's campus Saturday.

The premiere of the final season is still a few weeks away, but WKAR invited local fans for three preview screening Saturday.

Some fans even dressed up in costume.

"Part of the amazing part of the show is just the exquisite costuming that they do, so it's fun to kind of picture yourself in that," said Jill McCole.

WKAR told us the wildly successful show helped them reach a more diverse audience, but they aren't worried about viewership dropping off after Downton Abbey ends, because there are more great historic shows on the line-up.
