The fifth season of AMC’s “Mad Men” wrapped up June 10. The season finale, appropriately titled “The Phantom,” was full of uncertainty and new beginnings (and endings, for one character in particular).It seems reality is no exception as Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, and Christina Hendricks have yet to confirm their returns for season six.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, all four are still finalising a deal with Lionsgate TV that will see them returning to the show for two more seasons.
We all but know Moss will be returning to the show after Matt Weiner, uncharacteristically revealed to TVLine that Peggy will return in the upcoming season after leaving Sterling Cooper for a job at another agency.
“I will spoil that one tiny piece of anticipation and tell people that Elisabeth will be showing up to work,” Weiner told TVLine. “I can’t say how much…but she has not left the show.”
Meanwhile the fate of Joan Harris, played by Hendricks, is still uncertain. The Hollywood Reporter reports Christina Hendricks is still hashing out the details for a new contract.
So far AMC has only renewed “Mad Men” for season six but Weiner is confident there is a seventh season in “Mad Men”‘s future.
If there is a seventh season, Don Draper, played by the dapper Jon Hamm, is a sure bet. His record-breaking eight figure contract was renewed in 2011.
Filming of season six will be begin in October.
