Mad Men Season Three Premiere Date: Aug. 16 on AMC

Martinis For Everyone: Mad Men Will Be Back Aug. 16!

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

I'm so excited for season 3! Mad Men never fails to fascinate the hell out of me. My hopes for season 3? - Joan has dumped her rapist fiance and finds true happiness with a deserved promotion at Sterling. - Don and Peggy are living apart (I NEED him to suffer some more, ok?) - Kenneth and Peggy hook up - for real. No affairs or any of that. - Don gives up smoking and drinking (ha!) But these ideas are probably too pedestrian. I'm sure the writers have some incredible tricks up their sleeves. Can't wait!

I am so very excited. I do not have any desire about the season except that it keeps doing what it does best. Entertain and keep me guessing. August 16th can't come soon enough.

A great anniversary present for us! This is absolutely our favorite show. My preference would be to have the show pick up from where Season Two stopped, but honestly, whatever they do will be just fine.

I could not be more excited! This is hands down my favorite show on television right now. I don't know how I've lived without Don Draper and Joan Holloway this long!

I definitely need to rewatch some episodes I'm having a hard time even remembering what happened in season 2!
