But then that's it. It's finished. The scotch bottle is empty. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here.
Jon Hamm was recently interviewed about the coming fifth season of Mad Men and revealed that while the show has a start date for its fifth season, he hasn't seen any scripts for it yet, so he's clueless as to what to expect. He did reveal however, that the show was renewed for two additional seasons, giving the Men team three more years to wrap up the adventures of Don Draper and Co. Then, it's all over. According to Jon, the show will end there. He explains:
"I think it should end. Everything should end. I was a big fan of The Office [in the U.K.] because it ended."
Ouch! Ya burnt, The Office, U.S.A edition! LOLZ!
Anyway, in television, nothing lasts forever but to be honest, we agree with Jon. With an end in sight, the writers can start to effectively weave a story from this season on to give its audience a fulfilling ending.
