So what does this season have in store for us? Show creator Matthew Weiner is talking!
He told EW:
“A lot of the decisions that Don makes may seem strange to the audience, but they’re going to seem strange to the people around him, too.”
Weiner added, “He is coming into middle age, which was closer to old age back then. Existentialism is a young man’s game, and you can say what you want about how death nullifies things. But when you get closer to death, it starts to become more serious, and it’s harder to laugh it off and say, ‘I’m living for the moment.’”
Jon directed the premiere episode and assured EW and fans that he’s not going anywhere. “I love going to work, so in that sense I could play Don for 100 years. But I realize we’re not on a treadmill, we’re on a thing that moves forward… And so I think these things should end, and they should end the way the guy that started it wants it to end.”
