“Mad Men” is gearing up for its return on July 25 — the Season 4 promo poster has been released. Rather than last year’s image of Don Draper calmly smoking a cigarette amidst rising water, this one shows a solo Don Draper staring contemplatively out the window of his empty office.
At the end of Season 3, Don left Sterling Cooper, the ad agency he has worked for since the show’s inception, to strike out on his own. He also agreed to give his unhappy housewife Betty a divorce.
So what is in store this season? Executive producer Matthew Weiner tells EW, “It’s about stripping away the things these people think define them. Once they’re taken away, they just may have to look
at who they really are.”
“Mad Men” debuts Sunday, July 25 on AMC.
