AMC is calling it “The End of an Era,” and that’s not hyperbole.
Mad Men, the network’s signature show, is coming to an end. Its final seven episodes begin airing at 10 p.m. ET Sunday, April 5, which would put the series finale on May 17.
Creator Matt Weiner and the show’s original six cast members (Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks and John Slattery) assembled Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour to reflect on the show’s legacy—and tease its “surprise” conclusion.
The theme for the final run of episodes: “People do change, but in a lot of ways, they don’t, unfortunately,” Moss said.
