3. Mad Men
Stars: Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Jessica Pare, John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Robert Morse
Premieres: Spring 2013
Why we're excited: Remember when AMC, Matthew Weiner, and Lionsgate were beefing over contracts, and Mad Men was off the air for 15 months?! Harsh times. Thankfully, we're back to regular programming, and the cigarette inhaling, whiskey swirling, cheating ad executives should be back to do it all again a sixth time by spring. Thankfully, because it's one of the finest shows on TV.
As usual, Weiner is tight-lipped about plot details, down to the actual year that the season will begin in, but we can make some safe assumptions. As the Hawaii set pictures would imply, Don and Meagan are still together, but the last we saw of them, their marriage was compromised when she asked Don to pull strings to jump-start her fledgling acting career.
Sterling Draper Cooper Price finally ascended, but at the cost of Lane's life. Elisabeth Moss has assured fans Peggy will continue to be a presence, despite leaving SCDP for greener pastures, as will Betty, but as they become satellite characters, their level of interaction with Don remains a mystery.
