Third Season of 'Mad Men' Delayed Until August


Third Season of 'Mad Men' Delayed Until August


'Mad Men' will not kick off the new season like the previous two, and will admit a new financial officer in the agency.

Fans anxiously waiting for the immediate return of "Mad Men" will have to swallow their hope. The third season has been set to bow in August instead of the usual mid-July starter, AMC has announced. No particular date is given though.

The delay is somewhat predictable for when the second season wrapped up in October last year, series creator Matthew Weiner had not been officially signed for another season until mid-January 2009. Variety reported that the drama only began production on Monday, May 4.

On another dose of "Mad Men" news, Jared Harris has joined the cast as a recurring role for the 3rd season. His character is named Lane Pryce, the financial officer of Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency, who will appear in at least 10 episodes. Harris filmed his part on Monday.
