The final season of AMC’s Emmy award-winning drama Mad Men is set to hit our screens this spring. The lives of Don, Peggy, Roger, Joan, Betty and Pete, and their families, colleagues, rivals, love interests and tennis partners will all get wrapped up in a handful of new episodes poised to air in just over a month. To celebrate the end of the show’s phenomenal seven-season stint, AMC has now dropped the first teaser for the impending season.
Set to kick off this time in the seventies, the show will once more find Jon Hamm leading the exceptional ensemble cast as they dally with the stresses and strife of modern (well, it is to them) life.
We last left them off at the close of 1969 when last year’s first ‘final eight’ episodes debuted, and, as is the case with changing times, this shift into a new epoch will bring new opportunities for the characters; in particular, their own personal styles. As you can see in the brief teaser and crop of new stills (thanks to /Film) below, both sexes are at ease with the changing fashion trends. The best, and possibly most humorous example has to be the advent of sideburns.
Boasting an expansive cast, including January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Christopher Stanley, Jessica Paré, Jay R. Ferguson, Kevin Rahm, Kiernan Shipka and Mason Vale Cotton, Mad Men will return for its final season on April 5th.
