Mad Men fans get excited.
The first real promo image of the hit AMC series' upcoming fifth season has just been released, and it's already getting lots of people talking.
The loaded poster gives us a glimpse of Don Draper's reflection looking at a naked female mannequin in a store window, while a pajama-clad male mannequin sits beside her. The image seems to reference his decision at the end of season four to propose to his secretary Megan (played by Jessica Pare) ... will married life be anything like the store window Don's staring so inquisitively at?
"This is a dreamlike image," series creator Matthew Weiner tells The New York Times, likening it to the work of the Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico, who specialized in mannequin-like figures. The image is "a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be."
Judging from the photo, the highly anticipated fifth season is sure to be a surreal one.
Mad Men returns with a two-hour season premiere March 25th on AMC.
