• At the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour, Jon Hamm says the good thing about Mad Men‘s final episodes airing is not having “to fake like I don’t know how it ends or make up some ridiculous story about robots or zombies,” according to E! Online. At the same event, HitFix reports that Matthew Weiner says each of the last seven episodes “feels like a finale of the show.” January Jones calls the final episode “a beautiful story. It’s perfect in every way. I read it over and over,” Variety says, while Elisabeth Moss reveals that “Peggy has retained a lot of the qualities she had at the start, both in good ways and, unfortunately, bad,” Vulture notes.

Vulture reports that the final seven episodes of Mad Men will start airing on Sunday, April 5, with the series finale airing on May 17.
