Exclu: AMC has set a return date for its Emmy-winning series “Mad Men,” as well as a debut for its latest drama “Rubicon.”
Season four of “Mad Men” will bow on Sunday, July 25, at 10 p.m., answering fans’ burning questions from last season’s cliffhanger finale. With the disbanding of Sterling Cooper and splitting up of the Drapers, the upcoming premiere will play like a whole new pilot for the show, re-setting the drama.
Having scored with its first two drama series, “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad,” AMC has high hopes for its third drama entry into scripted one-hours — “Rubicon,” which premieres on Sunday, Aug. 1 at 8 p.m.
“Rubicon” is a conspiracy thriller set in a New York City-based government intelligence agency. The Warner Horizon series stars James Badge Dale (“The Pacific”) and Oscar-nominated actress Miranda Richardson.
Over the weekend, “Mad Men” showrunner Matthew Weiner seemed to suggest in an interview that his 1960s period drama would end after six seasons.
In response to the coverage, an AMC spokesperson said, “No one wants to see Don Draper wearing a leisure suit. We trust Matthew’s vision and that he knows where to take the show. But with that said, ‘M*A*S*H’ figured how to stretch the Korean War for more than a decade, so stay tuned.
