AMC’s awarding winning tv series, Mad Men, continues to roll on as it prepares to enter its 7th season. Inside sources at AMC stated that the series will likely continue for a total of 15 seasons. Should production occur, our sources provided us with a glimpse into the future.
Season 12 will open in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, where 83-year-old Don Draper, the former partner of Sterling Cooper & Partners, is being treated for chronic alcoholism.
By season 12, Don is “back to his old tricks” and tries to open a bar at the treatment center. Throughout the first 11 seasons, it was estimated that Don consumed approximately 4,800 glasses of scotch, all of which occurred before 9am each day. Mathematicians were consulted to determine the number of alcoholic beverages consumed during his normal working hours; however, each consultee stated that the field of mathematics has not evolved enough to perform such a calculation.
Our sources speculated that season 12 will end on a cliffhanger, with doctors evaluating Don’s lifetime cigarette smoking habit. Will he be diagnosed with lung cancer? You’ll have to wait for season 13 to find out!! If that’s not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, just wait until the concluding 15th season, which is set in the year 2010. This final season follows Don’s grandchildren, who were born with fetal alcohol syndrome, as they try to follow in their grandfather’s footsteps by running a major marketing agency. Sources speculate that there are many “action packed” DUIs and ultimate termination from their marketing agency due to drinking on the job and accidentally sleeping with each other.
On a final note, our sources claimed that top executives at AMC are “seriously regretting” their decision to have the actors drink actual alcoholic beverages during production, as opposed to colored water, which was supposed to improve the shows “authenticity.”
