It’s been a long, long time, but finally the prayers of MAD MEN fans are being answered:  at the Television Critics Association gathering today, AMC confirmed that the series will return at 9PM on Sunday March 25, with a 2-hour episode written by Genius Emeritus Matthew Weiner.

The following Sunday, April 1, AMC brings back THE KILLING, also a 2-hour premiere, which will start at 8PM, with Mad Men moving to its regular 10PM time-slot that night.  (April 1 also happens to be the same night HBO re-launches its hit Game of Thrones at 9PM, so set your DVRs now.)
Also, AMC swears on Tim Tebow that this time, The Killing will reveal the identity of Rosie Larsen’s murderer… but not until the final episode of the season.  Prepare for lots of rain, and even more red herrings.
