More ‘Mad Men’ Almost On Its Way

Don Draper Mad Men Season 5It’s been torture knowing that one of the best shows on television, Mad Men, has been stuck in this limbo for months, keeping all future production at a total standstill and forcing our favorite faces to find other projects to keep them busy, like Christina Hendricks who just signed on for a Broadway production of Company. But I’m here to bring you good tidings; the men behind the beloved show are reaching an actual deal! And not just any deal, but a deal for two more seasons which means we won’t have to worry about this kind of business mess delaying anything for at least two more years, woo!

The problem is that with all the delays this debacle has pressed on the show, we won’t be getting our fix any time soon. Originally, the show would have premiered at its usual mid-summer starting point, but with all this mess that’s not exactly possible. Variety’s sources say they are confident that while we won’t get Mad Men when we’d hoped, 2011 will not be Don Draper-less. It’s looking more an more likely that we’ll see that handsome, suit-wearing mug before we see 2012, which is better news than many of us had hoped for.

Now that we can all breathe half a sigh of relief, I think I’m going to go take one of those three martini lunches that Roger Sterling always makes look so damn cool.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
