Jon Hamm Inks New 3-Year Deal With Mad Men

The partners of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce needn’t worry about having to change the name on the door anytime soon: Jon Hamm has officially signed a three-year contract to continue with AMC’s Mad Men.

The actor’s new deal, which was first reported by our sister site Deadline, brings the series’ fifth season that much closer to starting production, after being long-delayed by protracted contract talks between showrunner Matt Weiner, AMC, and Lionsgate TV.

AMC renewed Mad Men for two more seasons prior to Weiner closing his new deal, but with both him and Hamm eventually re-upping for three, it’s highly unlikely that AMC will scrap its breakout hit any sooner than the close of Season 7.

Just recently, as scooped by TVLine, Hamm signed on to direct his first Mad Men episode ever, sometime during Season 5 (premiering in early 2012).

    I would love to see it end in three seasons. 7 is a perfect number for this show.

    Can’t believe this post has 2 comments and Glee ones get 200+

    I guess Mad Men needs to add mindless and stupid plot lines to get that kind of love.

    I hope they wrap it up nicely and end the show on a high note in S7. Enough is enough.

    Why not Draper, Harris, Whitman, with Whitman being the silent partner?
