The cast and crew of “Mad Men” reunited this weekend at TCA to discuss some of what is in store for the show’s final season, and we’d be lying if we said that this was devoid of emotion. These men and women have been through filming for many months now, and it was strange to be back together and suddenly back in this world again.
For Jon Hamm, this was once again a great opportunity to showcase a little bit of his trademark humor. Specifically, he joked (per The Hollywood Reporter) about what it has been like
“I’m so looking forward to being unemployed … I’m so happy to not see any of these people ever again. All of that is really great, hashtag sarcasm. … There is no version of this ending that is not super painful for me — mostly that’s because of these people. They’ve been the single constant in my creative life for the last decade. That’s tough. I’ll be happy when the shows air and I don’t have to fake that I don’t know how the show ends. But I will never be able to have this again, and that’s a drag.”
Hamm is clearly not going to have any problem finding some more work. He will almost surely have movie offers, but we hope that he does do some more TV work in the future. This is still the medium in which he shines.
AMC already confirmed that the final seven episodes of the series will start on Sunday, April 5, and will air then every week until we get to the end of the road. Right now, we have a hard time even processing what the end of the show will be. We just want to enjoy the ride.
