MAD MEN Creator Matthew Weiner: 'There's No Chance' of a Spin-Off
When MAD MEN's final episode airs in the spring of 2015, it'll be the end of the road for Draper and company.
At The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy nominees party, the creator of AMC's hit series, Matthew Weiner, put the rumors of a potential spin-off series to rest.
"There's no chance," he said. "No judgment against anybody else -- but this is it. This is the story. When it's done, it's done."
Weiner's confirmation comes just a few days after AMC announced that the final season of the show would be split in two, with seven episodes airing in Fall 2014, and the remaining seven the following spring. The network also confirmed that THE WALKING DEAD and BREAKING BAD would be receiving their own spin-offs.
