Mad Men is a brilliant show. It also moves with the urgency of The Guy on the Couch. So it’s really no surprise that the final season of Matthew Weiner’s masterpiece will be spread out over two years. That’s right, Don Draper & Co. are getting the Breaking Bad treatment.
The seventh and final season of "Mad Men" will air in two, seven-episode halves, AMC announced Tuesday. The first half of the season, dubbed "The Beginning," will air in spring 2014. The second, "The End of an Era," will air in spring 2015.
"This approach has worked well for many programs across multiple networks, and, most recently for us with 'Breaking Bad,' which attracted nearly double the number of viewers to its second-half premiere than had watched any previous episode,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “We are determined to bring 'Mad Men' a similar showcase."
Put on your waiting shoes. Hopefully they’re quite comfortable.
