AMC has officially given the green light to a fifth season of the adman drama, the network announced Tuesday. But ongoing negotiations with series creator Matthew Weiner will push the show's return to early 2012.

Mad Men fans, don't despair yet: Don Draper and company will be back for Season 5, but perhaps a few weeks later than usual.
Insiders at AMC tell TV Guide Magazine that a deal is close with Mad Men executive producer Matthew Weiner and Lionsgate, which produces the show. If a deal can be finalized shortly, the show will be a month or so behind schedule (the writers are usually back to work by February) — but could still hit the network by fall...

What's going to happen to Prentiss on Criminal Minds? Please tell me she doesn't die. — Janelle
ADAM: The March 16 episode will most likely be her last, but something tells me her sendoff will allow Prentiss to return, should Paget Brewster be so inclined. But what, short of death, will send Emily packing? Matthew Gray Gubler, who directed the episode, tells us that Prentiss' dirty laundry will finally be aired. "[Prentiss] is in a tricky situation. She may have done some things in her past that wouldn't be looked upon favorably," he says.
The Walking Dead
No one was more flabbergasted by the breakout success of AMC's The Walking Dead than Robert Kirkman, the man who wrote the graphic novels that inspired the zombie drama.
"I'm frankly shocked. You always hope this stuff will be successful, but never in a million years did I think the TV show would catch on to this degree," Kirkman tells TVGuide.com. "Now we've got Zippo lighters and mugs, T-shirts and Walking Dead-brand gum and perfume. It's definitely strange to be at the center of what, I guess, is a phenomenon. I'm quite enjoying it, but it does startle me at times."

'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give us more (yes, more) Will Schuester's rapping on Glee. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Lux stop kissing her teacher long enough for the CW to see that Life Unexpected deserves a third season. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Fringe survive its move to Fridays. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, is it too much to ask that to see Meredith Grey in a wedding gown before we depart this mortal coil?

As if staying alive during weeks of zombie attacks wasn't enough, The Walking Dead's harried band of survivors found themselves having to escape from what they thought was a safe haven in the Season 1 finale.
After being cautiously welcomed into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta by Dr. Edwin Jenner (guest star Noah Emmerich), Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the survivors thought they'd turned a corner on their horror. But soon after they locked themselves in, they learned that the CDC, which had been testing brain samples in hopes of developing a cure for the zombie outbreak, was...
Andrew Lincoln, The Walking Dead
As The Walking Dead's short but highly celebrated first season comes to a close, series star Andrew Lincoln still can't quite wrap his head around the massive success of the AMC zombie drama.
The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman: Writing staff changes won't affect the show
"I don't think any of us expected this. In our best-possible-case scenarios, this isn't even close," the British actor tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It feels really unprecedented because the response has been so positive and affectionate. It's amazing. When you make something, you just hope that people will get why you wanted to do it or what you got from the script. But I don't think I've ever felt such an extraordinary reaction [where viewers] got what we intended to make. It feels great."
As Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes, Lincoln is both the leader of the show's ensemble and the misfit band of survivors who have banded together after the zombie apocalypse...
