AMC "Mad Men."

AMC has set Sunday, April 7 as the premiere date for the sixth season of "Mad Men." As with Season Five, the 1960s ad men drama will debut at 9pm for a special two-hour premiere episode written and directed by showrunner Matthew Weiner.

The series will then move back to its regular 10pm slot for the second episode, which is directed by star Jon Hamm.

Weiner told TV Guide that he "didn't know the show would go on this long. [With the] part of the 60s [the show now depicts] I've always been fighting an image of the period that has been created by books and movies."

The fifth season left off in 1967, and reportedly the new season will jump ahead in time to the very late 1960s. All cast members will be returning, with the exception of Jared Harris.

    Well obviously Jared Harris won't be returning.

    Beth's right. We've seen Don's brother again.

    It's not necessarily that obvious. Given this past season's tendency for time jumps, dreams and the occasional phantom, it's possible Harris could have made some appearances in Season Six.
