Though 'Mad Men's fifth season arrived after a long delay between AMC and series creator Matthew Weiner's continued negotiations, nothing will stand in the say of Don Draper's dapper return for 'Mad Men' season 6. Free of any interruptions, AMC has officially set a 'Mad Men' season 6 premiere date of April 7, 2013, with an episode to be written by Matthew Weiner himself and directed by executive producer Scott Hornbacher. With that said, where will season 6 pick up? Will Don Draper be a different man than when we left? Get the latest details on 'Mad Men' season 6 inside!

As any good 'Mad Men' follower knows, series creator Matthew Weiner is notoriously secretive when it comes to divulging details of upcoming seasons. Some scoops can't be hidden, as when two key members of the cast were spotted in Hawaii filming somewhat spoiler-y scenes for what we're told was the season 6 premiere, but what other 'Mad Men' scoops have arisen? Well for one, it seems both Don Draper and the silver fox will be back in the director's chair, as series stars Jon Hamm and John Slattery are set to helm multiple episodes of 'Mad Men' season 6!
Perhaps even more so than 'Game of Thrones' or 'The Walking Dead,' few shows manage to keep as tight lipped about upcoming stories as AMC's critical darling 'Mad Men.' Series creator Matthew Weiner manages to pump an impressive amount of secrecy into a series mostly focused on interpersonal relationships, but what's new of 'Mad Men' season 6? We've already seen photos of an excursion for two characters, but what new (and old) faces will we be seeing around Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce?
Frankly, we'll take any excuse to get Jessica Paré in a bikini, but 'Mad Men' Hawaiian style sounds cool enough in its own right. A few days earlier we learned that AMC's critical darling 'Mad Men' (largely snubbed at this year's Emmys) would take production to Hawaii for a brief jet-set, bringing office-crossed lovers Don and Megan Draper to its sandy shores. Pictures have emerged from filming, but who's wearing a wedding dress?
Those who follow AMC's 'Mad Men' (and really, why wouldn't you?) know that series creator Matthew Weiner plays things pretty close to the chest, often keeping everything about a season under wraps until its inevitable air date. Still, if you're going to shoot outside, you can't hide from us! According to recent reports, 'Mad Men' will take at least part of its new season to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, but for how long? And who will be taking the trip?
New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, 'Moonrise Kingdom' enchants, while 'That's My Boy' doesn't.
As fans of 'Mad Men' well know, series creator Matthew Weiner has very little hesitation when it comes to keeping characters off the series when the story takes them away from Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce. So while we're still waiting desperately to see the fate of Sal Romano, and hoping that Peggy still gets plenty of screentime next year, what recent addition to the cast may or may not be long for this world next season?
If there's one person who could probably go toe-to-toe with 'Arrested Development's Lucille Bluth over a fifth of vodka, it's 'Mad Men's Roger Sterling. And while all these seemingly crazy 'Arrested Development' season 4 castings endlessly perplex loyal fans, can you really ask for anything better than 'Mad Men' star John Slattery classing up the model home for the 2013 revival?
The structure of 'Mad Men' seems ever-changing, but with an end to the series on the horizon through a sixth, seventh season of the period advertising drama, it's time to start buckling a few things down. We'd already heard that Jon Hamm closed a lucrative deal to keep Don Draper drinking through the next few seasons, but what of his co-stars? Will Peggy, and most importantly of all, Fat Betty return?
Viewers were certainly in for quite a shock this season of 'Mad Men,' with all the surprising twists and unexpected departures, but one question certainly lingered by the end of the year. With Peggy Olson finally taking the plunge and departing Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce for greener pastures, will Elisabeth Moss be back for the inevitable season 6? What series creator Matthew Weiner has to say may surprise you.
