Matthew Weiner Says Mad Men Will End After Sixth Season 2010-04-19 12:08:05

Mad Men Gets an End Date: Are You Happy or Heartbroken?

For Mad Men, the end is near — in a couple more years, anyway. According to show creator Matthew Weiner, the series will wrap up after season six. The cast is currently shooting the fourth season, and though I strongly think it's one of the best shows on television, I appreciate that there's a fixed end date in sight.

Of course I want as much as I can get, but a great show can't be brilliant forever. In fact, six seasons seems to be the magic number for many fantastic series, such as Sex and the City and Lost — whose finale l've been anticipating.

So personally, I'm saving my tears, knowing there are still many more amazing episodes to look forward to. But it's also bittersweet, knowing there's an expiration date. How do you feel about it?

I agree with Asche, bittersweet. :) I agree with both options

A little of both. I'm glad that they'll have time to wrap things up properly rather than having it go on and on until it's no longer good/just shut off abruptly, but I LOVE this show! Maybe we can get some longer seasons in the meantime? Pretty please?

I really like it when shows don't wait until they're no longer funny or relevant or, well good to wrap up. It makes the show seem more special, at least to me, and ensures we'll get the ending the writers and creators want us to see. I'm sad to see the show go, but I think having a concrete end date is definitely a positive.

Option C: It feels bittersweet.

So this means we'll get three more seasons. Bittersweet for sure, but the end isn't really in sight.

I'll miss it, but it makes sense... The costumes & furniture are half the reason I watch anyway (Jon Hamm is the other half) and I just don't think they'd be as the show progressed into the 70s.

i so love mad men and will never tire of looking at that eye candy don draper, but there are all sorts of future possibilities: a reunion film set in the 70s, joan all disco-costumed out?!
