Finally a some good news for The Great Depression '09: Mad Men is coming back! It just would not be right if they left on that intense scene between Peggy and Pete? WOW!
Weiner, a former writer for The Sopranos,
originally signed on for peanuts when AMC picked up his drama about the
Madison Avenue advertising business in the 1960s. That original deal
only ran for two years and after the second season wrapped last October
he let it be known that he wanted more money before he'd re-sign.
This is fantastic news. I suppose that Mad Men would have gone on (it was picked up for a third season
by AMC), but it wouldn't be the same without Weiner. Now everyone can
breathe a sigh of relief, get back to work, and make sure those
episodes debut this summer as planned.
