If you're a fan of AMC's Emmy-winning drama Mad Men, you don't need a reason to watch the show's Season 4 premiere Sunday. (It's been circled on our calendar for months!) But since we've been lucky enough to see it, we thought we'd give you extra incentive, in the form of these few mild spoilers. 1. Season 4 is all about fresh starts. Don (Jon Hamm) and Betty (January Jones) ended their marriage at the end of Season 3, just as Don masterminded a plot to create a new ad agency, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. So the sky's the limit, right? Maybe not. Although the first look at the gang's shiny new workspace is thrilling, Don's Greenwich Village bachelor pad - and the life he now lives there - is as dark and sad as ever. Sounds like a perfect metaphor for just about every character on the show. To Read More Click Here .

AMC, which airs the Emmy-winning drama, and Lionsgate, which produces it, currently have a license agreement that runs for five seasons (Season 4 premieres Sunday). But they've started talking about extending the deal through at least a sixth season, according to Variety. To Read More Click Here .

Watch some great âA Fresh Start Forâ¦â previews for season 4 of MAD MEN which premieres on July 25th at 10pm on AMC. Be careful of spoilers if youâre not up to date with the show. Mad Men Synopsis: In season three, âMad Menâsâ unflinching look at the human condition continued as characters faced the realities of dramatic change in the country â from the birth of civil rights to the assassination of a president â and in their personal lives. Whether it was corporate politics, homophobia in the workplace or the frustration of betrayal, they dealt with an unsettling loss of the familiar. Audiences were stunned by the self-destruction of protagonist Don Draper, including a confrontation with wife Betty that forced him to reveal the truth about his past and identity, and the resale of Sterling Cooper by British parent company Putnam, Powell and Lowe (PPL), which left its partners on the brink of a new beginning.

"Mad Men" star Crista Flanagan has become the latest TV star to bare all for Playboy magazine. The actress, who plays secretary Lois Sadler on the hit show, has peeled off for a spread in the August issue of the men's magazine. She says, "Part of the reason (I decided to pose) was because it scared me, and I thought it was exciting that something still scared me. I was really nervous about it, and then I thought the only thing that would be embarrassing would be if I hated my body." Professionally, Crista Flanagan made his movie acting debut by playing HermioneGranger in "Epic Movie". She later appeared in other big screen projects such as "Meet the Spartans", "Disaster Movie" and will be seen in upcoming movie "Vampires Suck" in which she will play as Esme Cullen. Source Here
'Mad Men''s Sally Draper is one of the greatest kids on TV -- period -- and that's thanks in large part to the talented 10-year-old who plays her, Kiernan Shipka. Now, I get the opportunity to interview some of the biggest stars, but I was positively giddy about having Kiernan in studio for this interview. She showed up ready to answer all (OK, most) of my questions, including what we should expect from Sally and the Drapers in season 4 (premieres Sun., July 25, 10PM ET on AMC) and who's the biggest goofball on the swanky 'Mad Men' set. Kiernan also dished about which 'Mad Men' lady she'd like to have more scenes with. And just as I was listening to her sharp, intelligent answers, forgetting how young she actually is, she admitted that she doesn't exactly get to watch the whole show when it airs -- her mom, Erin, gives it a first pass to make sure it's age-appropriate. Now if only Betty Draper would be so doting ... Source & Video
The framed letter from President Obama hangs in the hallway outside Matt Weiner's office. "He wrote to say he enjoyed Season 3," the Mad Men creator says, giggling in disbelief. "He was congratulating me on my and the show's success, and I wanted to say, 'But wait, you're the successful person.'" The president was merely speaking for the quality-TV nation. In three seasons, Mad Men has gone from being a cool retro diversion to one of the most stylish, seductive shows in TV history. Last season ended in a mushroom cloud of hope and despair. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his most trusted companions in advertising walked away from the Sterling Cooper agency to launch a risky start-up. But Don's personal life imploded as his wife, Betty (January Jones), slapped down divorce papers and flew off to Reno with political aide Henry Francis (Christopher Stanley). Last we saw, Don was moving to Greenwich Village to start over. To Read More Click Here .
