Maggie Smith has signed on for the fourth season of the PBS period drama "Downton Abbey," reports TVLine.com.

Smith, who plays the Dowager Countess on the show, wasn’t considered a lock for returning to the series, with "Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes saying last summer that he wasn’t sure she would return.

Executive producer Gareth Neame confirmed her return at a post-Golden Globes party, the story says.

As previously reported, star Dan Stevens, who plays Matthew Crawley, won’t be returning for the fourth season.
