mad men renewed for three more seasons

Cherish these next three seasons, Don Draper fans.

Earlier this week, we were still waiting to hear whether or not Mad Men show creator Matthew Weiner would take AMC's $30 million offer to continue with the show.

Now, it looks like he's taken the offer. Here's what he had to say about it:

"I'm thrilled."

"I walked away from it 4-5 times in the last few days. It's never been about money. I wanted to do the show I wanted to do and the show the audience has come to expect."

And here's what Weiner had to say about the future of Mad Men:

"These will be the last 3 seasons of the period drama. I'm going to take it one year at a time without the distraction to ever have to go through this again. I'm incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and overwhelmed that I get to finish telling the stories I want to tell."

We're sure Mad Men fans will be sad when this show is gone, but at least there are three more guaranteed seasons. And who knows? Matthew Weiner could always change his mind…

Are U excited to hear that Mad Men is coming back for three more seasons?

But What I Really Wanna Do Is Act!

DMX could take a queue from Rapper Common, who’s making a sophisticated leap onto AMC’s pilot Hell on Wheels.

The Terminator: Salvation star will play a half-black/half-white freed slave who works on the Transcontinental Railroad. AMC’s SVP of programming, Joel Stillerman, said the following about Common’s role:

“Common brings a layered intensity to a very complex role. This part required someone who can transcend the stereotypes of the period and bring the character to life in a truly unique way, and he brings that.”

After the success of AMC’s original series Breaking Bad and Mad Men (well, until Sunday's premiere that is) we’re intrigued. We’ll be keeping an eye out, Common.
