Mad Men final season sets UK air date on Sky

Mad Men, Season 2

Story by Jack Foley

THE final season of Mad Men is to air on Sky Atlantic just three after after its US premiere in April.

It will also be screened in two halves – the first this year, with the final episodes following in 2015.

That first half of the AMC drama, entitled The Beginning, will debut on Wednesday, April 16 at 10pm on Sky Atlantic.

The second half – dubbed The End of an Era – will follow on both AMC and Sky in 2015.

The final episodes mark the long-running show’s seventh season in total.

But speaking last year, leading man Jon Hamm welcomed the move to round things up, saying that any good storyteller needed to end things, especially while on top.

“Otherwise, it just becomes a repetitive exercise in going through the motions,” he told US journalists last year.
