Mad Men's Sixth Season Has a Premiere Date

The last time we saw Mad Men, ummm... okay, I don't watch Mad Men and hey, that's my loss. But ambiguity, subtlety, and whatever Don Draper thinks is love will return with the show's sixth (and likely penultimate) season on April 7, AMC announced today. The season premiere will be a two-hour monster and start at 9pm before the series settles into its regular 10pm slot in the following weeks.

The first episode will be written by Mad Men creator and tough negotiator Matthew Wiener, and the second episode will be directed by handsome series star Jon Hamm. But beyond that, you're pretty much on your own for details as Weiner and AMC are staying quiet on the specifics.

What year will Season 6 be set in? What historical events will be happening in the background? How far into the future will the show skip? What hot tail will Draper be draping? As soon as I find out the details, I'll let you know (unless I'm busy playing Halo 4 or clipping my fingernails or something).

I'm still enjoying Mad Men, though I seem to be the only one. Looking forward to it!

When I watch it, I enjoy it. Not the best show ever, but I enjoy it.
However, after almost a year, everytime I go "Wait, this is still on? What happened last season? Maybe it should have ended".

This doesn't happen with other shows somehow. Dexter, Game of Thrones, Californication, Homeland, everytime the season premiere gets close I get excited and wait for it to start.Not with Mad Men

they cant skip too far into the future, sally can only age so fast. Although I would have to agree that all they do is drink and womanize. Haven't seen anything past season 3, and even then the stuff i watched was a yawn fest.

Minor partners don't get their name on the door. Pete Campbell would be pissed.
