The "Mad Men" Drama Is Over: AMC, Lionsgate And Matthew Weiner Have Reached A Deal

Pour some scotch and celebrate: the “Mad Men” negotiations have come to a close.

Matthew Weiner and his team can get back to work.

The Wrap has the official announcement and details here.

One interesting thing to note: while our sources, in speaking with us, referred to the negotiations as covering seasons 5, 6, and 7, the deal only keeps “Mad Men” on AMC for seasons 5 and 6.

A separate deal covering just Weiner’s stint as showrunner contracts him through a “possible seventh season.”

But we’ll worry about that two seasons from now. Cheers.
