Mad Men Season 5: Get Caught Up for Sunday’s Premiere!

Mad MenThe long awaited Season 5 of AMC’s Emmy winning drama Mad Men premieres on Sunday night.

The two-hour, Jon Hamm directed episode, continues a few months after season 4 left off with the show’s characters experiencing changes and new beginnings.

Don is with his new wife Megan, while the still married Joan just gave birth to Roger Sterling’s baby.

Don’s ex-wife Betty, is still married with Henry, living in their new home.

Pete is in wedded bliss with Trudy. The couple by the end of season 4 welcomed to the world a baby girl.

As for Peggy, after she rescued the agency in season 4 by bringing in a pantyhose account, she continues to climb the corporate ladder in the agency.

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner revealed, talking about the 2-hour premiere at TVLine.com, that is ‘One super-sized episode.”As I started writing it, it started spreading and spreading and spreading and I was like ‘There is too much story and I could cut this thing down, or I think I have a Mad Men movie here.’I had a great team helping me develop this story and we just sort of went for it. And the network was excited. I was like, ‘We’ve been gone for so long, let’s give fans a big Mad Men movie to start the season.’

In other Mad Men news, Jon Hamm is also a producer now on the show after a new 3-year deal he inked last summer, which also afforded him a whopping eight-figure paycheck.

Mad Men Season 5 debuts on Sunday, at 9/8c on AMC.
