mad men amcThe good news is that Mad Men will be back on the air.  The bad news is that Mad Men Season 5 won’t air until early 2012!  Say it isn’t so!

AMC is officially moving ahead with a fifth season of Mad Men, according to a report this morning from Deadline.com.  AMC put the word out in statement on Deadline.com this morning:

“AMC has officially authorized production of season 5 of Mad Men, triggering our option with Lionsgate. While we are getting a later start than in years past due to ongoing, key non-cast negotiations, Mad Men will be back for a fifth season in early 2012.”

The popular show about a 1960′s ad agency has been in turmoil this week. Mad Men’s executive producer Matthew Weiner and AMC cable network have been battling.  For a few hours, it looked like the series would be canceled.

According to Huffington Post, the battle was about advertising and key actors:

“But it has nothing to do with Weiner’s contract; the two sides were close to agreeing on a two year, $30 million deal for the mind behind the acclaimed period drama. Instead, the struggle involves budgeting in other areas, namely advertising and even actors.”

Seriously, how are we supposed to go without a John Hamm Mad Men fix until 2012?
