The adventures of Mad Men ad man Don Draper will resume on Sunday, April 7, AMC has announced.

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.

Those looking to catch up on/revisit Season 5 can do so via AMC On Demand, which starting Feb. 11 will roll out a new episode each week. Or, AMC is re-airing Season 5 on Sundays at 6 am, starting March 5.

UPDATE: Check out these brand-new B&W photos touting the new season. Betty throwing shade at Don’s No. 2! Pete’s sideburns! I can’t.

  • 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

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

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

    • 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.

      • Some people like to be contrarians. It’s the only way they can get attention. Sad, really.

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

    • He does have a crush on her. He totally does. You can just tell it from listening to the DVD commentaries.

  • 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 :)

    • They tend to release the previous season the same week that the new season begins, or right after. I know they have done that with Mad Men and Breaking Bad in the past, both AMC shows.

      • Thanks Sarah! Looks like I’ll be catching the AMC reruns then instead! :)

  • 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%.

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