What all we do know about the coming season? Well, in addition to what series creator Matt Weiner shared here (including about Peggy’s future) and here, Don and a certain female are heading to Hawaii (see photo); the show was casting several attractive 20- and 3o-somethings plus a pair of British gentleman in their 50s.

    Can’t wait.

  2. intelliwoman says:

    Hate this show, can’t wait til they get rid of it. No characters to root for or even care about. Much over rated in my book

    • Lauren says:

      Thank you for getting that off your chest. A new season of “Real Housewives” is probably right around the corner.

    • erin says:

      I understand people who don’t like the show, but I would find it hard for anyone not to at least root for Joan.

    • Jon says:

      When you see the title of a show you hate in the headline why do you click on the article much less leave a comment? You aren’t the only one, I see it all the time.

  3. Reblogged this on save it for the commercial break and commented:

    I can’t wait!

  6. cat says:

    Just please let there be less Megan. She’s not an interesting character no matter how much Matthew Weiner has a crush on her.

  7. Justine says:

    Any knowledge on when Season 5 will be on Netflix? I just watched seasons 1-4 for the first time last month so I don’t know what their release pattern is :)

  8. sophie says:

    Betty as beautiful as ever just put a smile on my face.. please more from the one and only real Mrs. Draper!

  9. Britta Unfiltered says:

    April?? That’s too long to wait! Last year they had the premiere on my birthday in March. I was so excited about that. Was hoping for a repeat this year. And agreed on those sideburns on Pete…egad. But the pictures are really beautiful. They really caught that vintage photograph look.

    I was very happy with season 5. But what is happiness? It’s a moment before you need more happiness. I won’t settle for 50% of any anything, I want 100%.

    I don’t like this show.

    Guess we get a new Bobby Draper this season again? It is definitely now the Mad Men tradition.
