AMC has released a batch of images from the upcoming season six premiere of Mad Men, titled “The Doorway”. As is executive producer/showrunner Matthew Weiner’s wont, the images reveal extremely little by way of plot details, but this is our first semi-look at footage from the new season. It’s clear that Megan (Jessica Pare) is sticking around for the time-being, and sideburns appear to be all the range among the male castmembers as we move firmly into the 1970s with this new season. The series has yet to stumble as far as I’m concerned (season five came the closest to being a misstep re: Megan), and so I’m incredibly eager to dive back into the Mad Men world this weekend. How great is it to have new episodes of Mad Men and Game of Thrones on the same night?
Hit the jump to take a look at the new images, and check back here on Collider later this week for Steve’s interviews with Weiner and the cast regarding the upcoming season. Mad Men season six kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, April 7th on AMC.
Here’s the vague logline for “The Doorway”:
Don spearheads a new campaign; Roger gets unsettling news; Betty takes in a houseguest.
