Yes, Jon Hamm thinks “Mad Men” should wrap up before it gets out of hand, but it doesn't look like that'll happen within the next three years.
According to Deadline, the actor has signed an eight figure deal to play the dashing (and deceitful) Don Draper for the next few seasons, a span of time that showrunner Matthew Weiner signed up for earlier this year.
Weiner has said before that he envisioned “Mad Men” hanging on through season 7, and between Hamm and Weiner’s three-year deals and AMC’s two-season renewal, it looks like that plan is coming to fruition.
Season 5 will make its way to AMC in 2012.
