Originally a destination for black-and-white films from yesteryear, AMC has drastically shifted its programming over the last several seasons. The network followed in the footsteps of other cable channels by airing its own original scripted drama series this year, a big step for the channel.
Its first effort, Mad Men, was apparently a correct move. AMC is due to announce that it has picked up the series for a second season, according to Variety.
The show debuted to great critical reception in July, and quickly became the network's most-watched original program.
Mad Men is set in 1960s New York City, and follows the cutthroat world of high-powered advertising. The show was created by Matthew Weiner, who previously served as producer and writer on The Sopranos, Becker, and Andy Richter Controls the Universe.
Mad Men is currently through episode nine of its first season. For more information on the show, read TV.com's previous coverage.
