Sadly, it appears that we’re no closer to seeing season five of Mad Men. A deal with with series creator Matthew Weiner has yet to be worked out with Lionsgate and the same can be said for an agreement between the studio and AMC.
Christina Hendricks commented on the status to TVLine and said, “I know that there’s a season five and we generally go back [to work] around May, June… We’re just waiting for the word on when… I’m anxious to get back and see what happens with [Joan], and to work with all my friends.”
Like the Mad Men fans, Hendricks is concerned about the long delay but doesn’t have any inside information. She added, “I’ve heard just as many rumors as anybody else about the scheduling… It’s already a long wait in between seasons for the fans, so I hope they don’t have to wait any longer [than usual].”
What do you think? When do you think we’ll finally see season five of Mad Men? In the fall, next winter or even later?
I have noticed that with just about all series television, the first few seasons of a lot of shows are really good, but around season four or five, a lot of the writers change, some of the actors leave, and the show has lost its flavour and excitement. I have a few British series’ on DVD, and I must say that I prefer when they wrap things up in just a couple of seas0ns. That way, it ends before anyone gets tired of it. And there is no scramble to tie up the ends by the end of the season… Read more »
with so few offerings worth viewing on TV, I took an immediate liking to Mad Men with its fresh ideas in a dramatic series, interesting cast of characters and some fairly good “cliffhangers” if you will. Seems like anything worth viewing is gone all too soon and we are presented with some re-worked sophomoric, brainless series for those with the attention span of a gnat.
AMC doesn’t give you a lot of reasons to watch their network, they killed Rubicon and if this deal doesn’t get resolved, the ONLY reason I might have to watch the network is The Walking Dead – and that’s only if I manage to learn from another source when the next season begins.
whatever ,I like mad men and watch it but who cares what they do.keep it get rid of it. its only a tv show.
AMC and Lionsgate ongoing futzing with negotiations threatens to push the next season of Mad Men to 2012.
Remind them not to take Mad Men fans for granted:
