‘Mad Men’ season 6 set to return in April, Elisabeth Moss is quiet, January Jones says Betty is into some ‘weird stuff’

AMC announced the return of “Mad Men” for a sixth season which will be a two-hour feature written by creator Matthew Weiner and directed by Scott Hornbacher. Details are still quiet with Elisabeth Moss being even more tight lipped that usual.

“I can say even less now than I could before, because I used to be able to at least say that I was at Sterling Cooper, and now I can’t even say where I’m working. So I can say even less,” Moss says of her character Peggy in an Jan. 25 interview with Vulture.

“The only thing I can even say is that she’s trying on new things,” Moss reveals. “She’s trying to figure out who she is, still, and she hasn’t quite found it yet. But I think her journey in trying to figure out who she is … she’s getting closer. She’s getting closer.”

January Jones chatted with Vulture about the upcoming season of “Mad Men” and said Betty will be around more in Season 6. She added, “We’re halfway done — and I’ve gotten to do a lot of weird stuff.”

Series star Jon Hamm will direct the season’s second episode a week later as it settles into its regular 10 PM time slot.

When last we left Hamm’s Don Draper and company, the firm of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce was still recovering from Lane Pryce’s suicide, Peggy Olson had joined a rival agency, Roger Sterling was all tripped out and Don was sitting on the sidelines of wife Megan’s first big break — and contemplating a proposition by two pretty young things (or was he?).

Weiner, speaking to The New York Times, would not be led as to just where the story will pick up April 7.

“It will advance in time, as it does… I can’t say how much or how little. We’re coming off a period in Don’s life where he’s trying to normalize, and trying to have this relationship — a real relationship with this woman that he fell in love with. She expressed her desires and that was a surprise for him. On this show, it’s a very rich, full orchestra, and we like to follow what is the next stage in these people’s lives.”

“Mad Men” returns to AMC on April 7, 2013.
