Mad Men Season 5

March 19, 2012 by staff 

Mad Men Season 5, “Mad Men” officially returns to the tube this Sunday (finally!). After a 17-month long hiatus between the end of season four and the beginning of season five (which included a contract battle, January Jones giving birth and Jon Hamm appearing in “Bridesmaids”), the dapper suits, scotch and the ’60s are back.
On Monday morning, some cast members of “Mad Men,” including Jones, Hamm, John Slattery, Vincent Kartheiser, Jared Harris and show creator Matthew Weiner paid a visit to Matt Lauer and “The Today Show.”

As always, Lauer held nothing back, firing off with a question about just how bad the contract dispute was.

“Several of us had gender reassignment surgeries, so that all had to settle in,” Hamm joked, before Weiner went into the serious details.

“We have not been away from the show as long as the public has. There was a decision made by the network in 2010 that the show would be on in 2012. So I went back to work in May and they [the cast] came back in August. So it was really just three or four months longer than normal,” Weiner said.
