'Mad Men' has not caught 'Lost' fever: no end date in sight, says AMC
The creator of "Mad Men" has created a mad stir with some innocuous comments he made at the National Association of Broadcasters convention last week.
As reported by no media outlets other than theweeklyblend.com, Matt Weiner apparently said that he could not see writing or continuing the advertising-centric series beyond its sixth season. The fourth season will premiere in July.
That came as a big surprise to fans, but no one was more surprised than the network that airs the show, 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! "
