Mad Men Season Three Spoilers: Premiere Date, Time Jump

by at . Comments

The third season of Mad Men will premiere in early August.

We'll pass along the exact date when AMC announces it.

Betty Draper Picture

Betty Draper ended season two with a baby on the way. Where will this story pick up in season three?

As for what fans can expect from season three, words of advice: don't expect tidy resolutions to the second season finale's cliff-hangers - i.e. Peggy's admission to Pete and Betty's pregnancy - because the show is likely to jump ahead in time again.

Hmmm... what 1960s historical events might serve as a metaphorical backdrop (as the Cuban Missile Crisis did in Season 2)? Perhaps a certain Presidential assassination.

I'm very excited for Season 3! I, too, wonder what will happen with those cliff-hangers they threw at us at the end of Season 2. I hope they resolve some of them; otherwise it'll be like a dinner with no tasty dessert. I'm sure wherever they pick up, the fans will be able to piece it all together... we just don't know.

Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
