Brief Mad Men Spoilers for Season Three

by at . Comments

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner spoke with television columnist Alan Sepinwall about his plans for season three of the critically-acclaimed drama.

He was asked whether he might do another 15-month jump, as he did between seasons one and two, that would take Mad Men characters past the JFK assassination. Here's what Weiner had to say about the prospect:

I can say one thing in advance: the Kennedy assassination is very well-trod territory, and I just don't see myself adding new to that. But I might start the day before it. Or I might do what I did with a lot of historical events, which is to put it in the background and show people's personal events overtaking it.
