AMC’s “Mad Men” is notoriously spoiler-phobic, so it’s safe to assume any preview materials the network releases before the episodes air have been carefully selected to reveal as little information as possible.
Still, the new images AMC has released from the two-part premiere episode, “The Doorway,” airing this Sunday (April 7), do tease just a bit of info about some key character relationships, settings and time of year the story takes place.
Take a look to see what we’ve learned and check out more images in our “Mad Men” Season 6 gallery.

The Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices are decorated for Christmas, so at least part of the action will take place near the end of the year. (What year? We can’t say.)
Although no photos of Betty Draper (January Jones) were released, we do know Don and Betty’s daughter Sally (Kiernan Shipka) will be involved. She’s growing up fast, and — as might be expected considering her parents — isn’t much interested in being a good little girl.
The photos leave one big question (aside from Betty): Where’s Peggy?
