Among the flood of information pouring out from today's tragic Los Angeles International Airport shooting, it seems the incident carried with it an unexpected TV side effect. Amid all the chaos, the shooting also apparently interrupted the first day of production for 'Mad Men''s final season, which had been filming at the airport in one of the terminals nearby.
Though the announcement of spinoffs for both 'Breaking Bad' and 'The Walking Dead' should have given us a clue, 'Mad Men' fans were surprised to find that AMC would make yet another attempt to extend its most profitable programs, adding an episode to the final season in order to divide 14 among two runs through 2015. Now, series creator Matthew Weiner has spoken out to offer his thoughts on the move, as well as shoot down the idea of a spinoff.
The announcements that AMC had decided to re-cancel 'The Killing,' spinoff 'Breaking Bad' into a 'Better Call Saul' prequel and add a 'Walking Dead' companion series spinoff for 2015 had us wondering if 'Mad Men' would be the next target to fill the rapidly-expanding holes in AMC's lineup, and it seems we were right. The network has decided to split 'Mad Men's seventh and "final" season between 2014 and 2015, expanding each run as 'Breaking Bad' did before them.
Lately we've seen AMC get a little spinoff-happy with its most successful properties, today announcing a "companion series" to branch off from 'The Walking Dead,' while 'Breaking Bad' prequel 'Better Call Saul' moves forward with its own series order, but would the cable network dare to spinoff the story of 'Mad Men?' Find out what series creator Matthew Weiner has to say about the "completely new story" in store for Don Draper next season!
We'll need a bit of water to wash down all the salt fanboys should take this one with, but Christina Hendricks on HBO's 'Game of Thrones'? We want to go to there. The 'Mad Men' actress kept up the notorious secrecy surrounding the AMC drama, but recently opened up about her post-'Mad Men' plans, which include a desire to make the trip to 'Homeland' or HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' assuming the old gods and the new smile upon us.
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
A few weeks ago, 'Mad Men' series creator Matthew Weiner finally opened up about the AMC drama's purposefully-vague "next time" promos, which take the series' anti-spoiler policies to often absurd and nonsensical heights to tease the following week's storylines. Now, Conan O'Brien has decided to get in on the action with his own vague promos for 'Conan,' and the results are nothing less than spot-on.
And so, another season of 'Mad Men' has come to a close with last night's finale "In Care Of," subverting most casual viewers' expectations of murder and mayhem with a somewhat subdued episode that still featured some seismic shifts in power. Series creator Matthew Weiner made the press rounds to discuss the season's end, as well as what he envisions for the ostensibly final 'Mad Men' season next year.
‘Mad Men’ season 6 pitches its 13th and final episode of the season, “In Care Of,” as Don debates moving to California when the opportunity presents, while Ted and Peggy finally confront their relationship, and Pete receives shocking news about his mother.
Last week’s ‘Mad Men’ episode, “The Quality of Mercy,” saw Don causing an awkward situation for Ted and Peggy at work, while Pete finally uncovered the mystery behind Bob Benson, and Sally spent an experimental night at a boarding school in avoidance of her father. So what will the final episode of the season bring?
