Mad Men final season images - Peggy Olson and Don Draper

Now that we’ve all finished analyzing and overanalyzing that psychedelic Mad Men poster, it’s time to turn our attention to the first Mad Men final season images.

As Mad Men marketing goes, these pictures look fairly straightforward. They just show Don Draper (Jon Hamm) at the airport and on an airplane, with Megan (Jessica Paré), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), and Roger (John Slattery) taking turns beside him. But the accompanying interviews with showrunner Matthew Weiner should give you something to chew on until the show comes back.

See the pictures and read Weiner’s comments after the jump.

Mad Men Season 6

For the past three years, summer has brought with it the start of a new season of Breaking Bad. That won’t happen in 2014, but something (hopefully) almost as good will. AMC has announced that the spinoff Better Call Saul will premiere in November, though they have not yet set an exact date.

Meanwhile, flagship drama Mad Men will return for the first half of its seventh season on Sunday, April 13 at 10 PM; the second half will air sometime next year. And the week before, on Sunday, April 6 at 9 PM, we’ll get the premiere of the Revolutionary War drama Turn, starring Jamie Bell as a spy for George Washington.

Finally, the new drama Halt and Catch Fire, about the 1980s computer boom, will arrive in June, followed later in the summer by the return of Hell on Wheels. [HitFix]

Breaking Bad - Jesse

(Major spoilers for Breaking Bad follow.)

Breaking Bad is over for good, but not every character closed out the series with a definitive ending. One whose fate was left open-ended was Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), the gentle soul who had the spectacular misfortune to fall under the sway of Mr. White. The last we saw of him, he was driving off into the distance. Whether that ride ended with a fatal crash, jail time, a successful escape to Alaska, or a Disneyland trip with Brock, we don’t know.

Series creator Vince Gilligan has previously said that the ambiguity was by design, stressing that “it’s up to the individual viewer to decide what happens next for Jesse.” However, that hasn’t stopped him from coming up with some theories of his own. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

Frank Darabont

Four seasons in, AMC’s The Walking Dead is currently on its third showrunner. But its original showrunner still hasn’t quite forgiven the network for ousting him in the first place.

While doing press rounds for his new TNT series Mob City, Frank Darabont has admitted that he no longer watches the megahit series he helped create, blasting the “sociopaths” who dumped him halfway through production on Season 2. Hit the jump to read his candid comments.

breaking bad

Breaking Bad ended its run less than two months ago, but if you’re already eager to relive Walt’s journey from Mr. Chips to Scarface, the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series collector’s set is due out next week. And today, to show you just what’s inside, series creator Vince Gilligan has taped an unboxing video.

(Mild late season 5 spoiler coming up…) Though the case that the discs come in is an “absolutely nuts-on perfect recreation” of the money barrel that Walt buried at To’hajiilee, it does not, sadly, contain millions of dollars in cold hard cash. It does, however, contain quite a few other goodies, including a Pollos Hermanos apron, a challenge coin, a making-of documentary, and of course, all 62 episodes of the acclaimed drama. Watch the video after the jump.

AMC Ordering ‘Preacher’ Pilot

preacher-banner

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s comic series Preacher was crazy. Not just kinda violent, kinda weird, but full-on crazy. For example, it’s got a character whose failed Kurt Cobain-emulating suicide attempt, leads to a grotesquely mangled face and the nickname “Arseface,” none of which precludes him becoming a pop superstar. It features one antagonist whose sexual proclivities turn towards the nigh-unprintable extreme, and whose body is steadily chipped away over the course of the story.

Oh, and the lead character is a small-town Texas preacher whose best friend is a junkie Irish vampire, and who is possessed of a god-like power called Genesis. That power was born of the coupling between angel and demon, and allows him to command a person to do anything with absolute authority. Like “count all the sand on this beach,” which leads one character to do exactly that. Oh, and the preacher, Jesse, wants to find God and fight him.

But if you’re AMC, which needs something to follow Breaking Bad, full-on crazy might be just the thing. And so Preacher has reportedly been ordered to pilot at the company. And there’s a big question that came up after the first announcement was made: Seth Rogen tweeted two statements that suggest he’s got something to do with the adaptation.
