Mad Men Returning to AMC with Creator Matthew Weiner for at Least Two More Seasons

The fate of Mad Men is finally sealed with AMC having striked a deal with creator and exec producer Matthew Weiner.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Weiner closed a two-year deal with Lionsgate that’ll keep the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning scribe on the AMC drama for seasons 3 and 4.

It was only last week that Weiner said, “I don’t even know if it’s happening.” Blindie’s happy to see it coming back!

Show Creator Matthew Weiner Doesn’t Know if Mad Men‘s ‘Happening’ Next Season with AMC

The fate of Mad Men has been allegedly sealed by AMC, but creator Matthew Weiner says he’s uncertain about the show’s future, which he calls “unknowable.”

“I don’t know anything about next season — I don’t even know if it’s happening,” Weiner told E! News at the Emmys. “I don’t even know what to tell you. I don’t know what to say … I’ve done everything I can. That’s all I can tell you.”

While Weiner has yet to sign on the dotted line, the show will be coming back with the actors. But they’re not all happy-go-lucky about going at it alone without Weiner.

Christina Hendricks, who plays sexy office manager Joan Holloway, said, “There is no show without Matthew.”

Ga Ga: The Beautifully Complex Women of Mad Men Featured in EW’s Best & Worst Issue

There’s only a handful of shows that feature remarkably complex women enduring and reaching for the stars in a man’s world. And this year’s breakout show is definitely AMC’s Mad Men.

Entertainment Weekly gives props to the three lead actresses in the 1960s-era, Emmy-winning show: Christina Hendricks who plays sex pot office manager Joan; Elisabeth Moss who plays secretary-turned-copy editor Peggy; and January Jones who plays vengeful housewife Betty Draper.

“I love that I get to represent these powerful, smart women from the ’60s who tried to break through the glass ceiling,” Moss, 26, who is up for a Golden Globe and SAG award, tells EW.

While Jones, 30, who is up for a Golden Globe, said, “The episode where Betty finally kicked Don out of the house, the response I got from friends and family was ridiculous!”
