Don, grab your old-fashioned! Joan, grab your accordion! Roger, grab your nearest PYT! Lois, grab your nearest piece of dangerous machinery! We’re back in business.
Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce will continue its war with whatever remains of Sterling Cooper 1.0 when “Mad Men” season 4 begins on Sunday, July 25.
Isn’t that swell?
Bad-ish news now.
There’s some up-in-the-airness about this, but show creator Matt Weiner made some comment at the National Association of Broadcasters convention last week that he could not see writing or continuing the series beyond season 6.
According to the LA Times, that came as a big surprise to fans, but also execs at AMC.
“A spokeswoman for AMC assures that no end date has been set for the show and issued this statement on behalf of the network: ‘No one wants to see Don Draper wearing a leisure suit. We trust Matthew’s vision and that he knows where to take the show. But with that said, M*A*S*H figured how to stretch the Korean War for more than a decade, so stay tuned!'”
Don’t speak too soon. If Jon Hamm is the one wearing Don’s leisure suit, there’s at least one person here who wants to see it.
By the way, is our girl Joan — aka Christina Hendricks — the hottest woman alive? Esquire seems to think so. Seems like a good call from here.
