MAD MEN Season 6 On The Horizon

Mad Men (AMC) Season 4

The highly anticipated fourth season of MAD MEN hasn’t even hit the air yet and the two companies behind the series are negotiating to secure a sixth season of the show. AMC and Lionsgate, who air the show and produce it respectively, have a deal covering the fifth season but not beyond.

According to reports, the network and production company are in negotiations to add a sixth season of the show and possibly even more beyond a sixth season. Lionsgate currently has Matthew Weiner, the creator and executive producer of the series, under contract through the end of the fourth season and are likely trying to determine AMC’s interest in the show before extending Weiner’s contract. Weiner has commented that he can’t envision the show going beyond six seasons.

Neither AMC nor Lionsgate had any comments regarding the ongoing negotiations. The Emmy winning drama series returns to AMC on July 25.
