The creator of AMC’s game-changing drama “Mad Men” revealed what he has in mind for the show when the time comes to wrap things up.
Matt Weiner said he envisions the show ending in the current era, with Don Draper as an 84-year-old. Weiner revealed his vision at a Friday appearance at "Jeff Garlin in Conversation with …," a stage show in Los Angeles, reports GrantLand.com.
"I do know how the whole show ends," Weiner said. "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."
He added, "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."
