LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Mad Men will return to United States (US) television for a sixth season on April 7 with a special two-hour premiere written by its creator Matthew Weiner, the AMC cable channel said on Wednesday.

In a statement, AMC said the multiple Emmy award-winning series centered on a New York advertising agency in the 1960s will again feature original cast members Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery and Christina Hendricks.

"To be able to continue exploring the stories of these characters for a sixth season is an amazing opportunity," Mr Weiner said in the statement.

"We love mining this world (of Madison Avenue advertising executives in a decade of change) and look forward to bringing the audience stories that we hope will continue to both surprise and entertain them."
