Mad Men always maintained an odd relationship with history, incorporating major ‘60s events, but keep Sterling-Cooper and Don Draper’s work somewhat obscure in the advertising world. No longer, it seems, as Heinz has officially adopted an abandoned ketchup pitch from Mad Men Season 6 for use in the real world.
In the aftermath of Mad Men, creator Matt Weiner essentially held carte blanche for any TV return. Amazon managed to scoop him up for a global anthology series; kept a mystery at the time, but now revealed as an episodic exploration of The Romanoffs, a lost royal Russian family.
The world was essentially Matt Weiner‘’s oyster after the successful completion of AMC’s Mad Men, and no one necessarily expected a TV return so soon. After the odd job of directing Orange Is the New Black, Weiner now has in mind to direct an anthology series for Amazon, scoring a Don Draper-esque payday in the process.
Netflix scheduling and secrecy the way they are, we haven’t heard very much from Orange is the New Black Season 4, but pour some scotch: lockdown may be over. Season 4 of Netflix’s prison dramedy (depending which award you want) has hired Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner to direct an upcoming episode.
Like any series finale, Mad Men had only so much room to wrap up its core storylines, without necessarily taking time to spotlight each and every unresolved plot point from the series. Those bemoaning Sal’s absence should feel a little better at least, as a new wishlist from Matthew Weiner reveals everything Mad Men‘s final season regrettably left out.
Far from any LOST or even Breaking Bad, last night’s Mad Men series finale still inspired the lion’s share of debate today, the final moments of “Person to Person” proving just vague enough for a few open interpretations.

At long last, Don Draper and his fellow Mad Men have brought AMC's touchstone drama to a close. Tonight's series finale brought plenty of change, heartbreak and death, but how did the former folk of Sterling-Cooper close out the series? Learn every Mad Men fate by our full review of tonight's series finale "Person to Person"!
We’ve all imagined our fair share of Mad Men theories, particularly with just over a week until the series finale. Series creator Matthew Weiner keeps notoriously tight-lipped about any and all spoilers, but his most recent Conan appearance broached one of the crazier theories, and even teased Don Draper’s end in a new clip from the final Mad Men.
Mad Men will close the doors of Sterling-Cooper for good in just a few weeks' time, but did you know that the Emmy-winning AMC prestige drama was written in 1999, and rejected everywhere until 2006? Or that an episode paid a cool $250K for a single Beatles song? These are just some of the Mad minutes awaiting you in the third episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which clears the smoke to pitch you some fresh facts about Mad Men!
The end of an era has begun, now that Mad Men pulled back the curtain on its final seven episodes with Sunday's "Severance," but could Matthew Weiner really top the season 7 shocker of "Waterloo"?
