Finally, the news that all Mad Men fans have been waiting for (after what seems like forever) Mad Men is finally coming back! In a Doug Loves Movies podcast Jon Hamm let slip that Season 5 has a premiere date of 25 March in the US (on AMC). Season 5 is made up of 13 episodes with Hamm having directed the premiere episode.
The last time we saw the gang at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce was 201o. The final episode saw Don propose to Megan, Betty fired Carla as she and Henry prepared to move to a new home, and Peggy was in charge of a new campaign for a pantyhose company. Also, we can’t forget that Joan was pregnant with Roger’s baby (did she go through with the abortion?), and Roger was recording his memoirs in the hope of getting a book deal.
The UK/Ireland air dates are yet to be announced but hopefully we will get the shows only a couple of days after they have aired in the States, as has been the case with GLEE. Sky Atlantic will be showing the show in the UK/Ireland and RTE will air the show in Ireland.
Below is Sky Atlantic’s teaser trailer for Season 5
