Creator Matthew Weiner and the cast of Mad Men did a Q&A at PaleyFest yesterday, but as usual, he didn't let anything slip. All we've gotten so far are a couple of vague teaser trailers, one of which involves the airport. But who is going? Who is coming? We have no idea.j
Apparently the cast doesn't even know what is going to happen in the series finale. "I don’t think any of us have any idea what the tone or look will be," Jon Hamm said. Weiner referenced his friend David Chase and the oft-maligned series finale of The Sopranos.
"That was the way that show had to end, and every year that passes we know that was the way the show should end. You can’t divorce The Sopranos’ ending from the audience’s emotion. I will end Mad Men the way it tells me to do it, the way I want to do it. The way that Mad Men is finally perceived by the audience versus what I want to do are two different things and I want it to be satisfying. I don’t want to destroy the entire life of the show."
Well, that's mildly comforting, but we're pretty sure Chase thought that, too. In any case, here's the trailer for season seven that tells us nothing. Mad Men returns April 13.
