UPDATE: At the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Jan. 14, it was revealed that the March 25 premiere of "Mad Men will be two hours long, beginning at 9 p.m., making up for its long absence. Jon Hamm, Don Draper himself, who originally revealed the premiere date, will be directing the second episode of the fifth season, according to a tweet from Zap2It's Rick Porter.
Rejoice, "Mad Men" fans! Season 5 of the four-time Emmy-winning drama finally has a return date. On the "Doug Loves Movies" podcast on Friday, Jon Hamm revealed that "Mad Men" will return to AMC on March 25.
Aside from the premiere date, Hamm revealed very little about "Mad Men's" fifth season. We do know, however, that Hamm directed the Season 5 premiere episode.
Following intense negotiations with the network earlier this year, Matthew Weiner, the Emmy-winning showrunner behind the 60s-set New York drama, agreed to create three more seasons of the Jon Hamm-starring hit, which would see a series finale come at the end of the seventh season.
For those of you that have been anxiously counting down, that marks 525 days since the Season 4 finale. Oh how we've missed you, Don Draper.
