With the finale of Downton Abbey set to air on March 6, we already miss the Crawley family and their household staff. Lucky for us, Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) has already secured her next gig with a new show on TNT called Good Behavior.

The series will be a major departure for Dockery, which tells the story of Letty Dobesh (played by Dockery), a thief and con artist who's fresh out of prison and constantly making bad decisions for herself. When she overhears a hitman being hired to kill a man's wife, she sets out to derail the job and chaos ensues. She'll star alongside Juan Diego Botto.

You won't find any semblance of Lady Mary in Dockery's new role. Goodbye manners, flapper dresses, coiffed hair, and sensibility! But, we're so excited to see this badass side of her, with a completely new and darker look. Plus, the show takes place in present time, so we can’t wait to see how she’ll rock a modern wardrobe.

TNT's Good Behavior will air this summer and begins shooting this spring in Wilmington, NC.
