Fans eager for more "Mad Men" this summer will be disappointed.
Lionsgate and "Men" creator Matthew Weiner are close to signing a new deal for the hit AMC show, according to the Hollywood Reporter, but it'll be too difficult to mount a fifth season by the summer, when the show about the 1950s advertising business has traditionally premiered.
In announcing a fifth season pickup for "Mad Men" at last January's Television Critics Association press tour, Joel Stillerman, AMC Senior Vice President of Original Programming said, "Mad Men is definitely coming back for Season 5, but don't ask me when, because we're not sure yet."
Instead, AMC will bow the new series "The Killing" April 3 and the fourth season of "Breaking Bad" in July. The second season of "The Walking Dead" is also scheduled for fall.
