It is impossible to overstate the impact it has had on AMC, and I would argue, this era of television,” said Charlie Collier, AMC President. “We are honored to forever be the birthplace and home of this iconic series and we can’t wait to share its artful conclusion with the fans. From the first shot, Matthew, his cast and crew handcrafted something truly distinctive for the screen, the very definition of premium television on basic cable. We will miss the remarkable people, the consistently exquisite program, and of course, the free scotch and cigarettes in our vending machines.”

Mad Men surpasses our highest expectations year after year and these final episodes are no exception as the fates of its characters are ultimately revealed,” said Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group. “Thanks to the genius of Matthew and all the extraordinary artists on both sides of the camera, the series has raised the standard by which all dramatic television is judged. It’s had a profound impact on popular culture, as well as the evolution of Lionsgate’s television business, and is an incredible gift to all of us.”
