After numerous delays, due mostly to on-going contract negotiations between AMC, Lionsgate Television and series creator Matthew Weiner, the fifth season of Mad Men was finally announced to premiere in March 2012, sixteen months after the finale of season four. Weiner's new deal includes the production of a fifth and sixth season with the strong possibility of a seventh, which Weiner said would be the last
Long time to wait!
Thanks for the info. Seems crazy to delay for so long. Although hugely popular, peoples tastes can move on quite quickly. Some will alrady have moved on to other shows (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire etc) and those that are avid fans will have high expectations after waiting so long. If they fail to deliver in the first few episodes then the show might lose viewers fast.
Yep, I hear you. Don't' think they will fail to deliver -- they know they will cease to exist without us watching.
Fantastic show. Can't wait!
i was late looking at this show . its not the sort of show i normally go for .but i love it .
more more more please .
I find this show so interesting to watch because of when it takes place ... the early 1960's. It's more then a glimpse into politics, the clothes, the attitudes, etc.
They must be filming the next season. Anyone know when it's due back ... too long to wait for a winter showing.
Work began on a 6th season of Mad Men in July. No air date has been confirmed but season five is likley to air spring or summer 2013. There is also a strong possibility of a 7th season. If season 7 goes ahead it will be the shows last.
thanks, thor. i'm looking forward to the return.
