The following week on Sunday, April 14, the show will return to its regular timeslot of 10/9c with an episode directed by Jon Hamm.
“To be able to continue exploring the stories of these characters for a sixth season is an amazing opportunity,” said Weiner. “We love mining this world and look forward to bringing the audience stories that we hope will continue to both surprise and entertain them.”
“It is a calling card and a point of great pride for AMC to be the network home of Mad Men, led by Matthew Weiner and his brilliant team,” said Charlie Collier, President and General Manager, AMC. “We can’t wait to share season six with the world and what better way to start than with a special two-hour premiere?”
“The success of Mad Men is built on the exceptional artistry and imagination of Matthew Weiner, the cast, and the entire writing and producing team,” said Kevin Beggs, President, Lionsgate Television Group. “They continually strive to raise the bar and we look forward to bringing viewers another great season.”
