AMC is cordially inviting you to “the affair of the year” in a newly released promo for the upcoming sixth season premiere of “Mad Men.”
The brief spot features still images of all the series regulars, including a slimmer Betty Draper (January Jones), a pensive-looking Don Draper (Jon Hamm), and a newly styled Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) avec sideburns.
Of course the word “affair” here takes on an instant double meaning given Don’s history with extramarital dalliances. And at the end of Season 5, Don didn’t seem too quick to dismiss a lady admirer at the bar, now did he?
Could this be a sign of what’s to come in his tempestuous relationship with Megan (Jessica Paré)? Or is there simply a black tie event on the horizon?
Creator Matt Weiner offers this tease of the sixth season: “We love mining this world and look forward to bringing the audience stories that we hope will continue to both surprise and entertain them.”
The two-hour Season 6 premiere of “Mad Men” airs on Sunday, April 7 at 9/8c on AMC.
