‘Mad Men’: Season 5 UK start date confirmed

Sky Atlantic have today confirmed that the fifth season of Mad Men will debut in the UK just two days after AMC’s US premiere.

An unbroken run of all 13 episodes of Season 5 will begin at 9pm on Tuesday 27 March with a double bill.

Creator Matthew Weiner teased: “There’s a time jump. There are some new people. Changes have happened off screen, and the audience will have to catch up with that.”

He added: “Even though Don ended up making this overture to Megan, and the audience felt sort of peculiar about it, so did the people in the office. That’s something that we play on.”
