Good news or not?
AMC has confirmed that the final season of Mad Men will air in two parts. The first seven episodes will air this spring, and the second seven episodes will air in the spring of 2015. The halves also have been named, the first seven episodes will be called "The Beginning" and second seven, "The End of an Era."
For those wondering why they are not simply referred to as separate seasons, it comes down to money. Many times, the contracts for the cast and crew are negotiated on a season-to-season basis. So by calling it one season, it makes it cheaper to produce and it will then be more lucrative to air.
