New Season 5 Poster Takes Don Draper Shopping

Mad Men has unleashed the first real promo image of its upcoming fifth season, and Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is front and center.

On the heels of the stark, cryptic teaser posters and the recent barrage of character-based clips, AMC now has the official poster for the long-absent series’ return.

The ad shows Don looking into a store window display. Inside, mannequins, set up like a man and disrobed woman, appear to be reenacting married life. The reflected glimpse of Don’s face shows that he might not be entirely sold on the idea.

Speaking with The New York Times, creator Matt Weiner said the surreal image draws inspiration from Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico.

“This is a dreamlike image,” he said, “By the end of the season… I guarantee you’ll know what it is about.”

When the series last left off, Don had proposed to secretary Megan (Jessica Paré), setting the character up for marriage #2.
