Fresh off yesterday’s unveiling of a magnificent poster for the upcoming sixth season of the drama series Mad Men, AMC has now released a new featurette for the show. Though there’s no new footage to scrutinize, we do get to see castmembers Jon Hamm, Jessica Pare, and Rich Sommer talk about what fans can expect from the new season alongside creator/showrunner/mastermind Matthew Weiner. With season seven poised to be the show’s last, Hamm describes the upcoming season as “like getting almost to the end of a great book.” Weiner teases a central focus on Don for season six, saying the new episodes will give viewers “a lot of insight into Don, a new dynamic, and people striving to grow up.” Also, Sommer is rocking some serious late 60s/early 70s sideburns. This show cannot come back fast enough.
Hit the jump to watch the new featurette. The two-hour season six premiere of Mad Men airs on AMC on Sunday, April 7th.
