Jon Hamm: Mad Men returns in March

Jon Hamm has revealed the first episode of the new series of Mad Men will air in the US in March.

The actor, who plays womanising advertising executive Don Draper in the drama, announced on podcast Doug Loves Movies that the premiere of the fifth series will air on March 25 on AMC.

Jon is taking to the director's chair for the first episode of the series, which picks up from the last series when Don got engaged to his new secretary.

AMC declined to confirm the date.

The return of the show follows protracted negotiations after the fourth season between Lionsgate, the studio that produces it, and its creator-executive producer, Matthew Weiner.

The drama, which airs in the UK on BBC Four, is expected to run through to a seventh series.
