Has Don Draper completely hit rock bottom or will it actually get worse for him in Mad Men Season 7, Part 1? The first half of Mad Men's final season launches Sunday, April 13 at 10 p.m. on AMC. (Everything is in two parts lately. Why can't they just call the second part Season 8?)
AMC announced many 2014 premiere dates on January 11, but not all. Some shows, like Hell on Wheels and The Walking Dead, are returning but the dates are still vague at this point. October something, as usual, for TWD. (We have you penciled, October 12.)
Here are some of the key premiere dates:
Game of Arms — unscripted arm wrestling show — premieres Tuesday, February 25 at 10 p.m.
Turn — a thriller about America’s first spy ring during the Revolutionary War — starts Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. with a 90-minute series premiere.
Mad Men — Sunday, April 13 at 10 p.m.
Small Town Security — Season 3 — premieres in May.
Freakshow — Season 2 — premieres in May.
Halt and Catch Fire — captures the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, during which an unlikely trio – a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy – take staggering personal and professional risks in the race to build a computer that will change the world — premieres in June.
Hell on Wheels — Season 4 of the Western — premieres later in the summer.
The Walking Dead — Season 5 — premieres in October.
Talking Dead — Season 5 — premieres in October.
Better Call Saul — new Breaking Bad spinoff focusing on the evolution of the Saul Goodman character before he became Walter White’s lawyer — premieres in November.
Precise premiere dates for Halt and Catch Fire, season four of Hell On Wheels, season five of The Walking Dead, and Better Call Saul will be announced at a later date.
Don't forget that The Walking Dead Season 4 continues on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. The mid-season premiere will be followed by the live aftershow Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, and a repeat of The Walking Dead at 11 p.m. At midnight, Comic Book Men returns for the second half of Season 3.
