Looks like someone’s going to have to shave! Critics’ Choice Television Award winner Jon Hamm just signed a deal with Lionsgate for three more seasons of Mad Men, following show creator Matthew Weiner’s contract for two more years (with an option for a third). What this means for fans is—bearing some tragedy or juicy drama worthy of a plotline itself—there will be at least seven seasons of Mad Men. After the scare Weiner and AMC gave viewers over the fate of Mad Men season 5, this only seems fair.
The move is smart one for AMC, considering the negative buzz they got for tightening the budget on Weiner in the upcoming season. And with The Killing‘s season finale universally loathed, the last thing they want to do is lose their flagship show. Sincecable tv seasons already relatively brief, this new deal shouldn’t keep Hamm from sexing up movie screens as well—don’t forget, we’ve got his snowboarding vacation with Megan Fox to look forward to!
