It’s almost the end for Mad Men. The first 7 episodes of the final season began airing in April of last year. So it’s only right that the network will premiere the last 7 episodes of the season on Sunday, April 5th at 10 p.m. According to Entertainment Weekly, the news was announced at this week’s Television Critics Association’s winter TV previews:
“What an incredible journey this has been,” executive producer Matthew Weiner says. “I take great pride in what the entire Mad Men team was able to create episode after episode, season after season. We sincerely thank the fans for joining us on this ride and hope it has meant as much to them as it has to us.”
The critically acclaimed series put AMC on the map, says network president Charlie Collier. “It is impossible to overstate the impact it has had on AMC, and I would argue, this era of television.”
When Mad Men first premiered on the network back in 2007, AMC was still known for its roster of classic American cinema. Charlie Collier is right. While it isn’t Breaking Bad, the ground-breaking series has had a lasting effect in influencing the state of TV today. Damn, we’re really going to miss Peggy.
