Finally, the news that all Mad Men fans have been waiting for (after what seems like forever) Mad Men is finally coming back! In a Doug Loves Movies podcast Jon Hamm let slip that Season 5 has a premiere date of 25 March in the US (on AMC). Season 5 is made up of 13 episodes with Hamm having directed the premiere episode.

The last time we saw the gang at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce was 201o. The final episode saw Don propose to Megan, Betty fired Carla as she and Henry prepared to move to a new home, and Peggy was in charge of a new campaign for a pantyhose company. Also, we can’t forget that Joan was pregnant with Roger’s baby (did she go through with the abortion?), and Roger was recording his memoirs in the hope of getting a book deal.

The UK/Ireland air dates are yet to be announced but hopefully we will get the shows only a couple of days after they have aired in the States, as has been the case with GLEE. Sky Atlantic will be showing the show in the UK/Ireland and RTE will air the show in Ireland.

Below is Sky Atlantic’s teaser trailer for Season 5

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
