Mad Men Season 7 Teaser: Don Draper Is Back

Mad Men Season 7 teaser

The first Mad Men Season 7 teaser is here. Like most teasers, it doesn’t reveal much. What it does remind us is April is going to be a fantastic month of TV with this Emmy-winning show coming back along with Game of Thrones and others.

Don Draper is seen slowly getting off a TWA plane and putting on a fedora. That’s it, but it’s awesome anyway. Check out the Mad Men Season 7 teaser below and also read about a new addition to the final season’s ad campaign. Read More »

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]

Final Season of ‘Mad Men’ To Air in Two Parts

It’s not a Ted Chaough-centric spinoff (sorry, Kevin Rahm), but AMC has figured out a way to spend some extra time with the SC&P team. The network announced today that it would split the seventh and final season of Mad Men into two parts, just as it did with Season 5 of Breaking Bad. Hit the jump to find out when the episodes will air.

Mad Men - Jim Cutler, Ted Chaough, Pete Campbell

Breaking Bad isn’t the only acclaimed AMC series on its way out. Mad Men is expected to wind down with the upcoming seventh season, due out in 2014. And as with the depiction of Vince Gilligan’s drug underworld, Matthew Weiner‘s cutthroat ad industry could live on in the form of a spinoff. Or so hopes actor Kevin Rahm.

In a recent interview, Rahm floated the idea of a new series about the adventures of his character Ted Chaough and Vincent Kartheiser’s Pete Campbell in Los Angeles. It’s unclear whether anyone at AMC has actually given this some thought, or whether Rahm’s just spitballing, but a post-Mad Men show set in ’60s (or ’70s) LA sounds intriguing either way.

Hit the jump to read his comments. Note: Spoilers for Season 6 follow.

Matthew Weiner‘s intense secrecy can get a bit frustrating for fans eager to know more, but it has its upsides as well. One is the fact that even the barest hints about Mad Men turn into an exciting guessing game.

After a batch of totally unrevealing promo stills and an even more opaque teaser trailer, we now have our first look at the official Season 6 poster. There’s still no direct indication of where the new episodes are headed, but there are plenty of clues about key themes coming up. Even better, said clues are depicted by Brian Sanders, a veteran illustrator once employed by Stanley Kubrick to paint and draw scenes from the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Hit the jump to check it out.
