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.
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!
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?

Now that 'Mad Men' has cleared the way for its sixth season finale "In Care Of" this coming Sunday, we've begun to look back on an exceptionally speculative run of episodes that saw fans identifing death omens at every turn and postulating secret agent theories over the enigmatic Bob Benson. Series creator Matthew Weiner keeps the show notoriously spoiler-tight, but what does he have to say about those maddening "next time" promos that increasingly troll viewers looking for teases?
Perhaps more so than any season to date, 'Mad Men' season 6 stirred the internet the most with its numerous death omens, and the abundant rumors and theories that Megan Draper wouldn't survive the season. Series creator Matthew Weiner remained predictably quiet until now, so who can we confirm will bite the big one before the season 6 finale?
We've all had a bit of fun these past few weeks with the various 'Mad Men' mystery threads, from ominous portents of Megan Draper's death to the espionage-style guessing games of Bob Benson's true identity. But to cool those conspiracy theories, showrunner Matthew Weiner has weighed in, and cryptically points out all may not be as it seems.
Though 'Mad Men's fifth season arrived after a long delay between AMC and series creator Matthew Weiner's continued negotiations, nothing will stand in the say of Don Draper's dapper return for 'Mad Men' season 6. Free of any interruptions, AMC has officially set a 'Mad Men' season 6 premiere date of April 7, 2013, with an episode to be written by Matthew Weiner himself and directed by executive producer Scott Hornbacher. With that said, where will season 6 pick up? Will Don Draper be a different man than when we left? Get the latest details on 'Mad Men' season 6 inside!
As fans of 'Mad Men' well know, series creator Matthew Weiner has very little hesitation when it comes to keeping characters off the series when the story takes them away from Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce. So while we're still waiting desperately to see the fate of Sal Romano, and hoping that Peggy still gets plenty of screentime next year, what recent addition to the cast may or may not be long for this world next season?
