AMC Announces “Mad Men” Season Six Premiere Date, Confirms It Is The Second To Last Season

Hey, all you “Mad Men” fans! We have good news and bad news for you!

The good news is that “Mad Men” will officially return to AMC for its sixth season April 7th!

The bad news: it is officially the show’s second to last season.

The announcement came courtesy of show creator Matthew Weiner, who, in a new interview with The Daily Beast, spilled a lot of beans on what the new season will have in store:

Here are some highlights (courtesy of Joblo):

What year does the sixth season start in? Weiner, however, was coy about just how much time elapses between Season 5 and Season 6. “I am going to skip ahead in time,” he said. “I won’t say how long, but the first two episodes are a movie unto themselves. And they do foreshadow what’s going to happen in the season. They do tell a story of the period and root you where you are in these people’s lives. But a lot has changed when the season opens up. A lot has changed.”

What will become of Pete Campbell? “Pete’s story was that he was switching places with Don, and he had reached an emptiness in that suburban world that was very hard on him and very numbing. It was as much of a midlife crisis as you could have. But his response to it as he explained in that last scene with Alexis Bledel [as Beth] was that he wanted an adventure and he wanted to feel better about himself. But in the end he just realized that there was something really wrong with his life.”

What does Matthew Weiner think of those fans who wait to watch the whole season at once? “I have a TiVo, but I like watching things live…I like entertainment to be an event. I don’t like the phone on, I don’t like the computer going, I don’t like people texting me during it. I’m interested in the Netflix [model] because it’s just so completely new. But my commercial instincts tell me, ‘Why wouldn’t you do it a few at a time, or something, or three in a week or whatever?’ But I am not going to argue with them because they obviously know what they’re doing…I still have a fantasy of everybody watching the show at the same time. Finding out what it is at the same time and then talking about it the next morning. I think there are very few things in our world that we share on that schedule anymore.”

How will this season differ from prior seasons? “What’s great about doing this show is every season is different and you never know what you’re going to get when you watch it,” Weiner said. “The actors will be the same, the characters are consistent, but the period is changing and the world is changing and the story is changing. They have different tones, they have different flavors, different colors, and week to week you don’t know what the show’s going to be. That means that there’s going to be a conversation about it.”

How can you NOT get excited after hearing all that?!

It hurts me to have to think that both “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” will be going off air soon enough (possibly even ending AMC’s recent reign as prime time drama king), but something tells me we have some great things in store leading up to the finale…

The first episode of season six (directed by Don Draper himself, Jon Hamm), premieres on AMC April 7th.

Call off the perch and rescue.

Earlier today, we reported that T’Challa, the African Grey parrot belonging to Monique Samuels of Real Housewives Of Potomac fame, had gone missing. After flying off yesterday morning the Potomac pet has finally made his way back to Monique’s backyard. In a series of videos posted to Instagram just two hours agp, Monique shared that T’Challa flew into the yard and perched himself onto a chair. The housewife admitted that her bird looked like he had his feathers ruffled last night but shared that he was so happy to be home he allowed Monique to hug him.

We love a happy ending!

T’Challa The African Grey Parrot Belonging To ‘RHOP’ Star Monique Samuels Is Missing!

Published

Polly wanna search and rescue?

Sure, we all tilted our heads and raised an eyebrow when Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels leashed up her African Grey parrot and took him to lunch at cast mate Karen Huger’s house but there is no denying that the football wife loves her bird as much as any dog owner would their pup. So you can only imagine how devastated Monique must be now that T’Challa has gone missing!

On Sunday, Monique took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news that during her morning coffee in the yard her bird, with the Black Panther namesake, had gotten spooked and flew off. In the 8 minute video, the reality star shared her fears that since T’Challa is not an experienced flyer he may injure himself or get stuck in a tree with no way of coming down. Monique shared that her husband, Chris Samuels, took care of their children all day so she could hit the streets to pass out flyers and search for the bird.

While recapping the second episode of season 5 which aired Sunday night, Monique also gave a T’Challa-update in which she thanked her fans for their outpouring support but sadly reported that the parrot is missing. The good news is that T’Challa is microchipped so if someone else should find him and take him to an animal rescue, Monique will be notified.

Fingers crossed!

WATCH: The Opening Scene From ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2 Looks Amazing But Raises A Bunch Of Questions

Published

on

Three minutes of gun shots, explosions, superpowers and lots and lots of questions!

The Netflix hit The Umbrella Academy is back for a highly anticipated second season. Just this morning the streaming service shared the opening scene for season 2 and it looks explosive. When we last saw the rag-tag team of superpowered siblings, Number 5 used his time traveling abilities to escape to the past to ensure the gangs safety from the imminent apocalypse. Oddly enough it seems the gang is once again facing an apocalypse but this time it comes in the form of nuclear weapons falling from the sky in 1963. You can never have enough apocalypses, am I right?

The whole gang is back with Ellen Page, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige returning. This season the siblings seem to have evolved both in their looks and their powers. Donning all black, the superheroes combat the Russian soldiers who are storming the streets after JFK has declared war. It’s clear that the petty drama that divided the team last season has been put aside as they now kick butt as a well oiled machine. It wouldn’t make for very exciting tv if the group remained happy-go-lucky however, so in the last few seconds we see the aged assassin Hazel return to take Number 5 on another time hop to save his family from the nuclear bombs that are dropping from the sky.

What will happen next?! Are we going further back in time again? Is it possible avoid two apocalypses? How did they adjust to life without cellphones?!?

Luckily we don’t have to wait long to find out the answers to these questions. Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is available for streaming on July 31st.
