The English period drama "Upstairs, Downstairs," which set the reputation of PBS’ "Masterpiece Theater" and before going off the air in 1977, is set to return with three new episodes, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The series will pick up on the Bellamy family in 1936, after the original series left off chronicling the family and their below-stairs staff through the 1930 market crash, the story notes.

An all-new cast will join, although the series’ creator and star, Jean Marsh, will play Rose again, the article adds. Rose, who now owns her own domestic employment agency, is asked by a new couple who has moved into 165 Eaton Place to help them hire servants.

More new episodes will air in 2012, while "Upstairs, Downstairs" is set to be released on March 29 in a box set, it adds.
