Mad Men Creator Rules Out Sequel Or Spin-Off
Matthew Weiner adamant that his show won't follow in the footsteps of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead...
Fans of Mad Men have been served notice that they'd better make the most of the eagerly awaited final series.
Creator Matthew Weiner has addressed the possibility of a follow-up or spin-off show in a new interview with TV Guide - and insists that it's not going to happen.
US television network AMC has already revealed that it is developing spin-off shows for its other hits Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.
But Weiner said: "For Mad Men, there is no sequel. I completely rule it out. There will be 92 episodes. I exhausted this world.
"I don't know what's going to be on my mind when the show is over but there is no plan to revisit this world. I have no intention of doing more of this."
He also addressed President Barack Obama's recent reference to the show in his State of the Union address - when talking about workplace laws.
Weiner commented: "It was surreal. I was writing and started getting texts, and got calls from newspapers asking what I thought about it.
"It was incredible that it happened. I'm a big fan of the president and I was pleased that not only did he take that from the show as an example, but that he thought that enough people would know what it was."
Mad Men's seventh and final series returns to Sky Atlantic on 16 April.
It will however be split into two parts - with the second run of episodes set to be screened in 2015.
