AMC Has Renewed Mad Men, But...


So yes, the good news is that AMC has renewed Mad Men for a third season. Season 2 concludes this Sunday.


The slightly more interesting news is that the network still doesn't have contract renewals with a number of the show's leading figures. This includes creator Matthew Weiner and series star Jon Hamm, as well as John Slattery.


Kind of puts AMC (and producer Lionsgate) in a bad position, seeing as you can't have a show (that's already been renewed) without a creator and a series star. I see lots of $$$ in Weiner's and Hamm's futures...


Update: AMC has stated that "long-term deals are in place with all the Mad Men series regulars."

First Dexter, than Entourage now Mad Men, this is a good day.
Mad Men is one of the most intelligent series around and I am more than happy that it gets more time to develop story lines and characters. This show deserves to be seen and its literature in visual form.

They just won an Emmy for best tv show, so I don't think Jon Hamm is going anywhere! God I hope not.
Joan ftw
