Made up of Golden Globe Award winner for Best Actor (Television Series Drama) Jon Hamm and an unforgettable ensemble cast, including January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery and others; even AMC will be sad to see them go. “‘Mad Men’ is the show that put AMC on the map. Period. It is impossible to overstate the impact it has had on AMC, and I would argue, this era of television,” said Charlie Collier, AMC President. “We are honored to forever be the birthplace and home of this iconic series and we can’t wait to share its artful conclusion with the fans. From the first shot, Matthew, his cast and crew handcrafted something truly distinctive for the screen, the very definition of premium television on basic cable. We will miss the remarkable people, the consistently exquisite program, and of course, the free scotch and cigarettes in our vending machines.

Speaking on “Mad Men’s” conclusion the show’s creator, writer and producer Matthew Weiner, stated “What an incredible journey this has been. I take great pride in what the entire ‘Mad Men’ team was able to create episode after episode, season after season,” said Weiner. “We sincerely thank the fans for joining us on this ride and hope it has meant as much to them as it has to us.

For those wanting to catch up from the start, “Mad Men” is available for streaming on Netflix (six seasons). AMC is also airing episodes of the past six and a half seasons every Sunday morning at 6am.

Airing it’s first episode back in 2007, the show, which centers around the lives of employees in a fictional Madison Avenue ad agency original called Sterling Cooper, helped set the tone for the return of period style dramas. Chairman of Lionsgate Television Group Kevin Beggs joined this view saying, “Thanks to the genius of Matthew and all the extraordinary artists on both sides of the camera, the series has raised the standard by which all dramatic television is judged”.
