Well if the Bored to Death movie news wasn’t awesome enough, today we finally have the date for when the next season of Mad Men is set to begin. Zou bisou bisou! Don and Company will be returning on April 7 after what was a very dark season 5. Suicide, People leaving Sterling Cooper Draper Price, and perhaps even the return of Don Draper, King of infidelity.
The first episode will be two hours in length. According to show creator Matt Weiner, there will be a jump in time, however he is being skittish on just how much time has passed since last season’s finale (70s? Don with mutton chops in a green plaid suit?) .
“It will advance in time, as it does,” Mr. Weiner told the New York Times. “I can’t say how much or how little. We’re coming off a period in Don’s life where he’s trying to normalize, and trying to have this relationship – a real relationship with this woman that he fell in love with. She expressed her desires, and that was a surprise for him. On this show, it’s a very rich, full orchestra, and we like to follow what is the next stage in these people’s lives.”
Season 6 is the penultimate season so one can only assume that it will be strong on story pushing towards its final season next year.
