The Final Season Of ‘Mad Men’ Will Also Be Split In Half

Benson. Name’s Bob Benson. Thanks for meeting me. Chilly one out there, isn’t it? Can I get you anything? Coffee? Tea? Well, let me know if you change your mind. The reason I asked to see you, sir, is because I find myself in one knot of a pickle, if you’ll pardon the expression. Earlier today, I was minding my business, looking for anyone in need of assistance, when I overheard a rumor. Now, it’s not Bob Benson’s nature to eavesdrop, no sir, but these ears do deceive me from time to time. The senses, they’ve been mighty keen ever since that shark sneaked up on me. Nearly snapped my bathing suit right off. Wait. Sharks? Who said anything about sharks?

But as I was saying, I happened to catch the boss talking about us being around for another year. Is it true?

The final season of Mad Men will be expanded to 14 episodes, but you’ll only get half of it next year. AMC announced today that it will split the seventh season of the Madison Avenue-in-the-’60s drama into two parts, with the first half airing in spring 2014 and the second half debuting in spring 2015.
