While we all doubtless still miss mega-popular period drama Downton Abbey, its creator Julian Fellowes seems to be working hard to fill the Highclere-shaped hole in all our hearts.

There’s The Gilded Age, his NBC new series that will premiere in 2019 and focus on the world of New York business tycoons and the rise of “new money” in late nineteenth century America. Beyond that, it sounds as though Fellowes will focus his attention on telling the story of one of the richest families in history.

According to Deadline, Fellowes is developing another new series called Five Arrows, which will focus on the Rothschild banking dynasty. This ultimate “rags-to-riches” tale follows a family who, in one generation, rose from humble beginnings to amass the largest private fortune the world had ever seen.

Even though many people are probably still deep in their Downton Abbey withdrawal following the conclusion of the show’s run earlier this year, there is hope for those looking for a period drama fix from within the same family. Downton creator Julian Fellowes new series Doctor Thorne, which premiered in the UK earlier this year, is coming to America!

The three-part period drama, now titled Julian Fellowes Presents Doctor Thorne will premiere on Amazon’s Prime Video service beginning May 20
