Good news, Mad Men fans!
After months of negotiations with AMC, Matthew Weiner, the show's creator, has finalized a two-year seven-figure deal, which will ensure Weiner will be back for the show's upcoming third season.
One of the suits said, "It's been a long road to try to make this deal, but between the support of AMC and the creative deal-making of (Lionsgate TV COO) Sandra Stern, we found a way to cobble together a package that was attractive to Matthew and made sense for us."
Our mad Mad Men fan friends have equated Mad Men without Weiner to The Sopranos without David Chase. So, basically, it would have sucked without him!
The deal has made everyone happy!
