Mad Men Season 6 Spoilers: Betty Is Bigger! Plus, “Flirtatious” and “Curvy” Newbies
Sorry, Betty haters, the B-word is coming back on Mad Men Season 6. She may not be bigger in the literal sense, but there will be more of her around.
Betty Draper Francis wasn't seen much on Mad Men Season 5, and when she was there, they focused on her discontent in her new marriage and unhappiness at gaining weight. Betty is never happy, so it's just a matter of what will tick her off next.
A fan asked TVLine if Betty would ever have an important storyline again, TVLine answered that Betty's limited role last season was due to actress January Jones’ maternity leave. "[N]ow that that’s over, the series regular is likely to return in a more significant capacity.”
The site also shared some casting news: Mad Men was looking for a group of 20- and 30-somethings described as “attractive,” “cute,” “flirtatious,’ “sweet” and “curvy,” as well as two British businessmen types in their 50s.
British? British makes us think of the dearly departed Lane Pryce. On that note, is the company now Sterling Cooper Draper or will they add Pete Campbell or Joan Holloway Harris' name to the door? We don’t know!
We also don't know when Season 6 will premiere. Filming just started last month. Season 5 premiered in March, but the other seasons have all debuted in July or August. Let’s hope they go with something closer to March again!
