Mr. Draper’s back in full force for Season 5 of Mad Men. We’ve been waiting for this one for quite sometime and now that contract negotiations and all the other business hurdles are out of the way, we can finally get back to watching the show that’s been so successful on so many different levels. March 25th is the date of the two-hour premiere so mark it on your calendar as we think these two 30-second promos will only get you more anxious.
Well, after Matt Weiner a recent extension with Lionsgate TV to do three more seasons of ‘Mad Men’, we knew it wasn’t going to be long before the show went after the leading man. They came hard, too, with a reported eight figure offer that will cover him for seasons five and six and a possible seventh season as well. The show’s won several Emmy awards and we think it’ll be in the hunt for seasons to come.
The show’s due to return in early 2012, which honestly feels like eternity, but ‘Mad Men’ is one show worth the wait.
Photographer Annie Leibovitz recently had the pleasure of shooting Jon Hamm and January Jones for Vanity Fair‘s September 2009 issue. The duo play Don and Betty Draper in AMC’s Mad Men which is set to enter its 3rd season on August 16th.
