I’m sure this announcement from TV Line comes with mixed emotions from the fan bases.
The long-awaited return of Mad Men’s Season 5 hits the air Sunday March 25th. Mad Men has been off the air since October 2010. The usual spring premiere was pushed back to a fall premiere which was then delayed until after 2012. It’s quite strange for a show this strong to be on hiatus for as long as Mad Men has, but I’m sure the fans won’t care at this point. We are just so happy Don Draper and crew is back!! Now I just need to finish the 4th season before March! I think I can do it.
The Walking Dead has its Season 2 debut on Thursday, Feb 2nd. I don’t watch this show, but I’m hoping Netflix has it because I would like to start watching it. It’s gotten great write ups so I would like to check it out. For those of you who watch it, should I check it out?
Finally, the show that brought a fan base to its knees last summer, The Killing returns on AMC on Sunday April 1st. I was one of those people who was livid at the way The Killing handled its last few episodes and the way their head writer Veena Sud was so condescending to the fan base in her explanation as to why Rosie’s murder wasn’t solved at the end of the first season. I am beyond curious to see the ratings for the show in its second season. I’m still torn as to whether or not I am going to tune in but I know many fans who said they are done with the show and they’ll see who the killer was at some point on-line.
Are you going to be tuning into The Killing season two? Are you getting your martini and scotch glasses polished for the return of Mad Men?
Great news for us Mad Men fans. Matthew Weiner has inked a new deal with AMC!!! Yahoo!!!! Why is this great for us? Because not only is Mad Men renewed for Season 5 but also for Season 6. Awesome.
Most of us were pretty confident that a Season 5 was coming. However, because negotiations were going so slowly, instead of Season 5 premiering in the summer, like Mad Men usually does, Mad Men’s Season 5 premiere will now be in early 2012. Yikes! I can imagine for people who watched the finale last August/Sept of 2010, early 2012 is a looooooooooong time to wait for Mad Men to come back to our screens. For me, Mad Men is a show I am just starting to watch. I have watched S1 and I am on S2 right now. My plan is to get through all 4 seasons during the summer so I will be ready to go for Season 5 when it returns in 2012.
Part of why this took so long was some concessions AMC wanted Weiner to adopt…cutting 2 series regular cast members, incorporating product placement into the show, and cutting 2 minutes off each episode to allow for more commercials. The product placement is happening. I assume that would be a pretty easy one considering they do work for an ad agency. The premiere and finale will still be a full 47 minutes but all the other episodes will go from 47 to 45 minutes. However, when they go to DVD, they will be a full 47 minutes. The biggest news though, and most importantly, there will be NO cast cuts!!!
Mad Men fans are you happy? I know I am and I’m thrilled this is finally complete. Now I just need to get through these seasons on DVD!!!
