Mad Men Season 5 Poster: Released, Reflective

at . Comments

Did you hear? Don Draper is back. Well, almost back. Mad Men returns with a two-hour premiere on March 25.

But the four-time Emmy-winning drama has given us plenty to ponder in the meantime, as AMC released the official season five poster today and it featured Jom Hamm's Don staring at both himself and a pair of mannequins in a department store window.

Referring to the poster as a “dreamlike image,” Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner told The New York Times it is “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be... By the end of the season I guarantee you’ll know what it is about.”

Naked ambition? A controversial pajama campaign? We should probably just wait patiently and see, huh?

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.


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.
