Draper's days are numbered. It was announced during the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour on Saturday, Jan. 10, that the final seven episodes of Mad Men will kick off on Sunday, April 5, at 10 p.m. on AMC.
"What an incredible journey this has been. I take great pride in what the entire Mad Men team was able to create episode after episode, season after season," creator Matthew Weiner said in a statement Saturday. "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."
Charlie Collier, AMC President, added: "Mad Men is the show that put AMC on the map. Period. It is impossible to overstate the impact it has had on AMC, and I would argue, this era of television."
"We are honored to forever be the birthplace and home of this iconic series and we can't wait to share its artful conclusion with the fans. From the first shot, Matthew, his cast and crew handcrafted something truly distinctive for the screen, the very definition of premium television on basic cable," he continued. "We will miss the remarkable people, the consistently exquisite program, and of course, the free scotch and cigarettes in our vending machines."
