Mad Men Is Coming Back… Finally!
Great news for fans of one of the best hours of drama on television. We’ve learned that Jon Hamm just inked a three-year Mad Men contract with AMC in a deal that makes the show’s star one of the highest-paid actors in a cable series. (Girl please…he is worth every penny!) Mad Men returns to AMC in 2012. March 25th to be exact and I cannot take it any longer!! The wait has been painful. Hamm’s signing comes on the heels of Mad Men creator Matt Weiner closing a new $30 million deal for the show following one of the longest and most difficult showrunner re-negotiations in recent TV history. AMC officially renewed Mad Men for two more seasons and Lionsgate TV already locked in Mad Men creator Matt Weiner for three more years. So this Hamm negotiation effectively assures that Mad Men will go to seven seasons. Pause and take deep breaths as you ohhhhh and ahhhh at the sales artistry that is Don Draper (Jon Hamm’s character)
