Mad Men Hot Shots: Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Is Back at Work, and Looking Good!

AMC’s Mad Men finally returns on Sunday with a two-hour opener and after being off the airwaves for nearly a year-and-a-half (!), and we’ve got some gorgeous new photos from the upcoming Season 5.

Mad Men Sneak Peek: The First Season 5 Teaser Trailer Has Arrived!

Unlike the official poster — Naked mannequins? Huh? — these shots are a lot more straightforward. Don and the rest of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce are back at work — but are there some hidden hints about the new season to be found in the images? For example, why are Joan and Lane Pryce grouped together? Is that a symbolic piece of glass separating the redhead from Peggy and the men? At least one thing is for certain: The characters still drink plenty!

    So Stan will have larger role this year

  2. Crittle says:

    Cooper looks like Colonel Sanders

  3. Bobbers says:

    Don’s not wearing a wedding ring and Joan doesn’t look preggers. I wonder where the timeline will be picking up!

      Re: Joan
      My thoughts exactly. Of course, Mad Men has been one to take giant leaps in between seasons. I’m dying to know what happened with her baby! If it is a giant time leap, I’m sad we’ll have missed Roger’s reaction to finding out she never got the abortion.

    I am so excited for this season!!! Thanks for posting!!

    Why such lack of January Jones…

  6. thoroughbredofsin says:

    Interesting that all the individual shots are against a black background except for Pete’s.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Actually, AMC supplied each in black AND white — EXCEPT for Pete’s which only came in white. Conspiracy theories, ignite! (Is he the walrus?)

    Aaron, your sister is so hot

  8. Melissa says:

    Don didn’t wear a wedding ring when he was married to Betty either.

  9. Emily says:

    So Bert is returning? I did miss him and his shoeless shenanigans when he quit.

    Hmmm, only one pic of Betty (and a head shot) so it’s hard to see if she’s fat.
    Before anyone misunderstands, last fall there were pap shots from the MM set of January wearing fat prosthetics (looked like latex pieces) on her arms and neck, which made it seem like Betty let herself go or something. Curious what that’s all about…

    God I love Mad Men but this pics look creepy, even Don! They all look like wax figures…
