April 7th marks the return of the one of television’s greatest shows of all time, and the move from the awesomely classic aesthetic of the early 1960s to the gaudy and unpleasant aesthetic of the late 60s and early 70s. That change will be evident in some of the photos below. Before we get to that though, let’s talk about what we’ve got to expect story wise coming up…
Here are five things you can expect to see: a wedding, two deaths, Megan rocking several colorful bikinis, a dramatic physical transformation from Betty, and one character dropping an F-bomb (is that even allowed on AMC?!). As for the finale’s big question — did Don cheat on Megan? — let’s just say that will no longer be a question by the end of the two-hour premiere.

So someone is gonna die? 2 someones…Can it be Betty and then Betty again?
There is also news that men everywhere have one more reason to want to be Don Draper/Jon Hamm: he’s been asked to tighten things up downstairs cause he’s so well endowed that his junk is visible in the tighter fitting fashions of the late 60s…
[box_dark]An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l that during filming of the sixth season of the hit show — when the ’60s-style clothing was a tight fit — Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.
“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells us. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”
Our insider says that during seasons one and two, AMC’s marketing team even had to do some Photoshop magic on promotional booklets that went out to press in order to make his privates more, well, private.[/box_dark]
