Mad Men Season 3 Set For Summer

AMC President Charlie Collier went right to the question on every reporters’ mind at the start of the Television Critics panel on Thursday afternoon: The fate of the net’s Emmy-winning drama “Mad Men.”

The program will return for its third season this summer as scheduled, despite the prolonged contract negotiations between producer Lionsgate TV and creator/exec producer Matthew Weiner, Collier assured.

“As long as we get the writers’ room up and running over the next few months, we’re fine (for a summer launch),” Collier told reporters after the session, adding that he’s optimistic that an agreement with Weiner will be reached soon.

The return of “Mad Men” will lead into the launch of “The Prisoner,” the six-part series remake of the classic 1960s Brit drama of the same name.
