Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is relieved after TV bosses reached a deal to bring the hit show back for two more series, insisting he is "very happy" to be continuing work on the retro drama.
The future of the show, starring Jon Hamm and January Jones, was thrown into jeopardy when executives at the Amc network and the Lionsgate studio failed to reach a deal to bring the series back to the small screen.
The extended negotiations, which led to lengthy delays in the filming schedule, were finally resolved on Thursday (31Mar11) and TV bosses have struck a deal to film a sixth and seventh season, with the drama coming to an end at the conclusion of series seven.
And Weiner is delighted with the agreement, saying, "I've always felt that seven seasons was the length of the story, but it's great for the fans to now be prepared for it... This is the first time I'll get to work on the show knowing that there will be another season and knowing when the end is coming - that's a creative luxury that I feel lucky to have...
"The deal includes that I write until the last episode of the show. This is a very elegant solution and I'm very happy. This has never been about money. It's always been about me trying to make the show the way I want to make it."
