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

My name's Sarina Bellissimo and I am a TV/Movie junkie. 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 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! In 2007 I started as a regular contributor to We Love Movies. This means that I get to watch movies, talk about them and even interview some of my screen idols. I’ve interviewed the likes of Robert Pattinson, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Craig, Uma Thurman, Colin Farrell, Cameron Diaz, and U2, to name but a few. One of my favourite interviews for We Love Movies was the one where I ended up sitting on Ashton Kutcher’s lap! Interviewing Sylvester Stallone would be a dream come true for me. I also appear regularly on Plan B to talk movies with Michelle Beatty as well as regularly contribute to Moncrieff’s Movies and Booze segment on Newstalk 106-108. I co-presented channel 6’s (now 3e) movie show Take Six and have appeared on Ireland AM's Movie & I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here segments. Twitter: @SBellissimo
