It's okay, your wait is almost over. Mad Men returns to your lives after the thaw with a dramatic two-hour premiere on April 7th. The Daily Beast spoke with creator Matthew Weiner about where things left off, where they're headed, and what to expect. Though he was tight-lipped about the future of Peggy, Weiner did dish on some things you should know about season six. Like:
“I am going to skip ahead in time,” he said. “I won’t say how long, but the first two episodes are a movie unto themselves. And they do foreshadow what’s going to happen in the season. They do tell a story of the period and root you where you are in these people’s lives. But a lot has changed when the season opens up. A lot has changed.”
Season 6 will reflect the times we, the viewers, live in.
