Since debuting in 2007, Mad Men has single-handedly made the '60s cool again, but the show may skip ahead to the present day for Don Draper's final curtain call.
"I do know how the whole show ends," series creator Matthew Weiner told Grantland. "It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn't mean Don's gonna die. What I'm looking for, and how I hope to end the show, is like ... It's 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now. I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it's related to you."
The fifth season of Mad Men will premiere this spring after an extended hiatus, and both AMC and Weiner have agreed that it will conclude after six seasons.
"All I want to do is not wear out the welcome," he said. "Do I know everything that's gonna happen? No, I don't. But I just want it to be entertaining and I want people to remember it fondly and not think it ended in a fart."
