Brief Mad Men Spoilers for Season Three

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.

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.


Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
