"Mad Men" fans can breathe a little easier: AMC announced Friday that the show will definitely be returning for a fifth season.

The series had not yet been officially renewed. But Joel Stillerman, AMC's senior vice president of original programming, told journalists at the annual Television Critic's Association, "'Mad Men' is definitely coming back for Season 5, but don't ask me when, because we're not sure yet."

The show's renewal for a fourth season was a bit more of a nailbiter, with protracted contractual negotiations between AMC and creator Matthew Weiner.
