Four-time Primetime Emmy winner and three-time Golden Globe winner, Mad Men, returns this spring for its sixth season. Returning April 7, promotions for the critically acclaimed series has begun. After the break, take a look at some of the classiest photos of the cast yet, including a few word from showrunner Matthew Weiner.
With another special two-hour premiere, Mad Man season six looks to start off with a bang. After the season debut, the show will return to its regular timeslot on Sunday, April 14 at 10/9 PM CST. Here’s the cast photos in a moving montage on-air promo from AMC that suggests a possible affair will take place.
Sticking with their guns, this promo is as vague as the rest. Since the focus is mainly on Don Draper, based on his past, one could assume his relationship with Megan will take a turn for the worst. Just look at Don’s face in that photo, he looks bored and most likely so is Little Don. Joan Harris looked pretty cozy with Mr. Draper at the end of season five, leaving the doors wide open to many possibilities. Matthew Weiner is going into season six very positive:
“To be able to continue exploring the stories of these characters for a sixth season is an amazing opportunity. We love mining this world and look forward to bringing the audience stories that we hope will continue to both surprise and entertain them.”
Madison Ave. looked pretty grim in season five. One of the best dramas on television, Mad Men wasn’t as strong as it has been, but I maintain my optimism. There are still stories to tell, but I feel they will have to think of an end game soon. Does anyone else want to see Pete Campbell trying to fiddle around with an iPhone in his 70s?

As much as I love Mad Men, I want to see it succeed to the best of its abilities. I don’t think Weiner is burnt out just yet, but the stories are slightly waning. Shows like Breaking Bad and Homeland are picking up the slack and with how slow burn Mad Men is, audiences will need something big to talk about at the water coolers this year. And I think that’s what this “affair” may bring.
Mad Men returns April 7 at 9/8 PM CST on AMC.
