AMC prexy Charlie Collier went right to the question on every reporters' mind at the start of the cabler's Television Critics Assn. panel on Thursday afternoon: The fate of the net's Emmy-winning drama "Mad Men."

The period skein will return for its third season this summer as skedded, despite the prolonged contract negotiations between producer Lionsgate TV and creator/exec producer Matthew Weiner, Collier assured.

"As long as we get the writers' room up and running over the next few months, we're fine (for a summer launch)," Collier told reporters after the sesh, adding that he's optimistic that an agreement with Weiner will be reached soon.

The return of "Mad Men" will lead into the launch of "The Prisoner," the six-part series remake of the classic 1960s Brit drama of the same name.

AMC has announced the third-season premiere of "Mad Men," and as expected the Emmy-winning drama will return in mid-August.

The new season will kick off at 10 p.m. ET Sunday, Aug. 16, with an episode that features limited commercial interruptions. The cable channel will run a marathon of season two on Monday, Aug. 10, and both seasons will also be available on demand over the summer.

The show began production in early May, at which time Twitter-fueled rumors of an Aug. 16 premiere date surfaced. Jared Harris ("Fringe," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") has joined the cast as Sterling Cooper's financial officer, but as has been the case throughout the show's run, details about this season's story lines are hard to come by.

Last season ended with Sterling Cooper about to merge with a British ad agency in 1962. Whether the story picks up from that point or jumps ahead in time, as happened between the first and second seasons, remains to be seen.

The show's core cast, including Jon Hamm, John Slattery, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones and Christina Hendricks, should all be back for the new season.
