Mad Men set to end in 2015
Mad Men will end in 2015 following a split season with the first half to air next year.
It follows a similar trend set by AMC for Breaking Bad amongst other industry titles.
The first half of the season, dubbed “The Beginning,” will air in spring (US) 2014. The second, “The End of an Era,” will air in spring (US) 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.”
Series creator Matthew Weiner said, “We plan to take advantage of this chance to have a more elaborate story told in two parts, which can resonate a little bit longer in the minds of our audience.
“The writers, cast and other artists welcome this unique manner of ending this unique experience.”
