Fans all over the country are waiting with baited breath for the March 25th Season Five premiere of “Mad Men.”

And AMC has released an appetizer of promotional photos to get everyone psyched for the upcoming drama at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Among those featured are Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, John M. Slattery, Jr, Jared Harris, Vincent Kartheiser, and of course Jon Hamm.

In a recent interview, Mr. Hamm shared that he’s excited about the upcoming season, especially given that it’s already been filmed in its entirety.

“This year, we finished the whole season [before it aired]. We didn’t have a press conference or anything. The first time we talked about the show was [at a Los Angeles press event in January], which was well after we had finished shooting, and it was like, ‘All right, people are excited.’ It was like doing a radio show or something, where you didn’t know if people were watching or paying attention, because they kind of weren’t. We were just making a show.”

As for the extended, network-imposed hiatus, Jon noted, “Well, there’s obviously two sides of that equation -- ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’ or, ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’ Aphorisms only get you so far. I was able to make ‘Friends with Kids,’ which was exciting and a significant portion of our life for Jen and I. So it was nice to have a break, be able to go make that movie and then also have time to do nothing. I did a play reading and a little thing on [‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of] Todd Margaret’ and just some weird little fun things that weren’t crazy, stressful or anything.”
