Mad Men’s series finale will come to an end after it’s seventh season
Mad Men’s creator Matt Wiener has dished that Don Draper will be an old man, and the times will be current. During Mad Men’s earlier seasons fans had wondered if the show would take us from 1960 – 1970, but it looks like Mad Men will go beyond the 1960s. (I wonder if we’ll ever find out what happened to Sal, by the way? We never really got closure on his character, did we?) The LONG awaited Season 5 premiere of Mad Men will be back in March 2012. Finally. Are you feening as hard as I am right about now?
Matt Wiener spoke with Grantland.com about the series finale of Mad Men:
“I do know how the whole show ends. It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn’t mean Don’s gonna die. What I’m looking for, and how I hope to end the show, is like … It’s 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now. I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you.”
Omg, that means we’re going to see Roger Sterling die! Noooooo!
A little Mad Men bonus for you ”Roger Sterling”/ John Slattery lovers out there. (Is that man sexy, or what!? Rawr!) This clip is from the 80s sometime and many of you might remember the VHS video it’s peddling but not the commercial itself. That’s ok, because it sucks, but it’s amusing because it has a young John Slattery. As a brunette Slattery is hardly recognizable and in my opinion not nearly as foxy as he is these days. Yeah, I dig that silver hair, baby. Jon Hamm might get all the attention, but John Slattery’s sex appeal is grossly underrated … excluding this video.
