We are officially approaching the beginning of the end of the greatest TV era of all time (in my humble opinion, anyway). This April, the seventh and final season of AMC’s hit series Mad Men will commence. Of the 14 episodes in this season, half will air this spring, and the other half will be aired at a later point in 2015.
From the trippy Season 7 poster, picturing the infamous Don Draper seated in front of psychedelic artwork, and the vague trailer ending in the phrase “It’s all up in the air,” I have high hopes for my beloved characters. Since Anthony Weiner, the show’s creator, is known for sharing little to no spoilers, we can only infer what is to come. However, the few photos released from the season definitely have a theme: airplanes. Are Don and Megan Draper moving out to Los Angeles so that she can further pursue her dreams of acting? Is Sterling Cooper placing more of an emphasis on California business? Or are they all just taking a wild and crazy trip filled with affairs and ghosts of Don’s past?
One thing I can already tell is that the wardrobe will continue to impress. Since the very first episode of the show, the characters have all had distinctive styles. The women in particular never fail to have elaborate, eye-catching fashion choices. Now that we’re approaching the ‘70s, though, I can’t wait to see what the outfits have in store for us. From the looks of it, the colors are getting brighter, the skirts are getting shorter, the lapels are getting wider and the men’s hairdos are getting longer. Plus, as we are now in 1969, I’m sure we haven’t seen the end of the creative team’s joint-smoking tendencies and Roger Sterling’s use of LSD. Is there anything not to love?
For only having 14 episodes left, the show has a lot of loose ends that need to be tied. I know I’m not the only one who would be severely disappointed without some closure when it comes to both Peggy and Pete’s child and Joan and Roger’s child. Also, the fate of just about every relationship is still up in the air. We can only hope for happy endings for all. Tune in to AMC on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 10 p.m. ET to see what happens!
