Mark your calendars, set your DVRs, and get your flannel suits and drink mixers ready, because Mad Men is returning for its third season Aug. 16. It's just a little more than two months till we'll be back inside the walls of Sterling Cooper.
Some other good news for those who haven't gotten hooked yet: the first season will be available OnDemand starting today, the second season will hit OnDemand on July 20, and the season two DVD will be out July 14. The show's pilot episode is also streaming online.
Now the big questions: Where will the show pick up? And what will the fate of the characters be? The second season jumped 14 months ahead of the first — so I wonder if we should expect a similar leap forward this time?
We talked a while back about some of your hopes for season three — but that was before all of the revelations in the season two finale. Now that we've had almost a year to sit on it, what would you like to see in the upcoming season? Do you want another jump forward, or do you hope the show picks up just where it left off? You can check out AMC's first promo for the third season (all footage from season two, so watch out if you're not caught up) if you read more.
