Fans of the hit AMC drama "Mad Men" can rejoice! Set your calendars, because the long-running, period drama is set to make its return for a sixth season on April 7th, per entertainment website Indiewire on Wednesday.
According to parent network AMC, the Golden Globe and Emmy winning drama will air at 9/8 central on April 7th, with a two-hour season premiere written by series creator Matthew Weiner. The series' second episode, debuting April 14th, will be directed by series star Jon Hamm, and will return to its normal 10/9 central time slot.
Charlie Collier, President and General Manager of AMC is quoted as saying, "We can't wait to share season six with the world and what better way to start than with a special two hour premiere?"
The series, which has traced the history of the 1960s through the eyes of the Sterling Cooper Draper (Pryce) advertising staff, ended season five in 1967. In an interview with TV Guide, Weiner confirms that season six will continue to explore the tumultuous late sixties, "I didn't know the show would go on for this long....And this part of the 60s I've always been fighting an image of the period that has been created by books and movies. There's propaganda that goes along with the whole era."
Denver area fans of the series can purchase the first five season DVDs at dozens of local retailers including: Target, Best Buy and Barnes and Noble. AMC also has announced that episodes of the fifth season will begin airing on AMC On Demand beginning February 11th.
