Back for more!

It probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that AMC has renewed “Mad Men” for a fifth season, but the news should still have the cast, producers and fans a chance to breathe easier. AMC announced during the Television Critics Association press tour on Jan. 7 that the network would bring back TV’s most critically acclaimed drama of the past four years. The announcement might not have been as dramatic if “Mad Men” cast member Rich Sommer (Harry Crane) hadn’t tweeted back in November that he was “operating under the assumption” that there wouldn’t be a fifth season. Did you have any doubt that “Mad Men” would return?
