“Mad Men” strikes new deal with AMC for more seasons
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: After weeks of behind-the-scenes negotiating (and a few publicized slings), the hit cable drama “Mad Men” will return to the airwaves for at least two more seasons (and an option for a third).
“That’s how long the show is,” series creator Matthew Weiner said to the NY Times. “I’m just thrilled I get to finish it.”
Earlier this week, Weiner said that AMC – which carries the program – was “insisting on cuts to the cast budget and cuts to the length of each episode,” the Times reports.
“All I want to do is continue to make my show, and make it in the way I want to, with the people I want to make it with,” Weiner said.
But according to a statement released by Weiner, both sides reached an amicable agreement, and “Mad Men” will be back in 2012.
