Attention, binge-watchers: If you've somehow avoided watching Mad Men since 2007—or just fell behind at some point—and want to get caught up on the show before Sunday night's finale, AMC has you covered.
The network will air a marathon of all seven seasons of Matthew Weiner's masterpiece drama, beginning Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET/PT, and running until the show's series finale on Sunday at 10 p.m.
Then, AMC's four sister networks—BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv—will suspend their regular programming at 10 p.m. ET/PT to air what AMC is calling "a special message" looking back on the series.
The five-day event will feature (sniff) the show's final promo ever, called "Times of Your Life." Presented from Don Draper's point of view, it is set to the Paul Anka version of "Times of Your Life," the song that was used in a Kodak ad campaign from the 1970s. Throughout the marathon, AMC will also air vintage promos from previous seasons, along with tributes from celebrity fans and red carpet interviews from recent Mad Men events.
"Turning AMC over to Mad Men and airing every episode of every season as a lead-in to the finale on Sunday seems a fitting way to continue celebrating what this series has meant to the fans, to television and to our network," said Charlie Collier, president, AMC.
