Some TV shows come and go and you wonder what happened or, in some cases, don’t really care all that much. Then, you watch a show like AMC’s Mad Men and you realize what great television can be and you count the months, weeks, days, hours minutes between the end of one season and the beginning of another.
Fortunately, the wait for new episodes of Mad Men is almost over. To commemorate this event AMC has started to get the message out about the new season with the release of a new poster and some trailers. In the poster we see Don Draper (Jon Hamm) standing in an empty office overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Obviously, this is to suggest the theme (or at least one of them) for this coming season: that of starting fresh.
This theme carries on in the trailers for the new season. Each of the characters get a fresh start at the new agency or in some other way and all of them look to be undergoing some big changes this season or, in the case of Roger Sterling (John Slattery) at least, back to his old ways: at least where drinking and smoking are concerned.
Whatever happens in these trailers, and with the season, it’s just great to see these characters and the show again. That season premiere can’t get here soon enough.
Check out all the trailers after the jump. Mad Men returns to AMC on Sunday, July 25th.
