Today, Mad Men fans shed a collective tear for the delay of Season 5. The network released the following statement about the show…
“While we are getting a later start than in years past due to ongoing, key non-cast negotiations, Mad Men will be back for a fifth season in early 2012.”
The tears are mitigated by the fact that at least there will be a season 5 (er, well depending on who you ask; see below), but for such an immensely popular show at the prime of its life (with riveting plotlines, character development, and intrigue), it’s a mystery why the Powers That Be have decided to give it a mid-life crisis.
Let’s hope it won’t be its last season when it returns, like with the prolonged hiatus of The Sopranos.
