With all the contract negotiations and such going on over at AMC between the network and the stars and creative team behind their blockbuster hit show Mad Men, there had been some speculation that a 5th season of the show wasn’t a done deal and if there’s going to be a 5th season at all.
However, according to a Q&A taking place at the TCA sessions this week, and reported by Deadline, there is no deal yet with Lionsgate TV for a fifth season of the Emmy-winning period drama or between Lionsgate and series creator Matthew Weiner for him to continue on the show.
However, according to the report, the plan is to bring Mad Men back for Season 5, AMC’s Joel Stillerman told reporters. But he was quick to point out that he din’t know exactly when. AMC President and GM Charlie Collier was also asked about the state of the Mad Men renewal.
“We’re negotiating, don’t know much more than that yet,” he said. “Can’t put a timetable on if.” So, whatever that means it at least looks like AMC is planning on having the show back. Let’s hope all the pieces fall into place.
