Tv Season Info

The final season of the AMC period drama was originally split in half, with two sets of seven episodes each airing about a year apart. In the first half, Don (Jon Hamm) attempts to return to his advertising agency after being put on indefinite leave following a meltdown in the middle of a client meeting. Eventually, his status at the firm becomes the focus of a bitter power struggle between Roger (John Slattery) and Jim (Harry Hamlin), both of whom want to take Sterling Cooper & Partners in radically different directions. Elsewhere, Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) embraces life as a Californian, Dawn (Teyonah Parris) gets an unexpected promotion, and Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) clashes with the stodgy creative director (Allan Havey) who's replaced Don. The second half sees the series finally leave the 1960s behind as it picks up with the characters in 1970: The agency's partners are now all wealthy after accepting a buyout from a much-larger firm, but they seem as lost and frustrated as ever. While Joan, Roger, Peggy, and Ted (Kevin Rahm) all embark on new love affairs, Don responds to the pressure of working in a more-corporate environment by attempting to run away and reinvent himself once again.

Critic Reviews for Mad Men: Season 7

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (28)

Mad Men is beautifully shot as always, with the dialogue flowing naturally and meaningfully over alcohol... The pace hasn't quickened. Nor does the storyline congeal. Instead, Sunday's re-opener builds to a terrifically poignant finish.

Uncle Barky

AMC's much-acclaimed Mad Men feels like it's coming out of a pit stop, rechecking gears and reacclimating to the track.

New York Daily News

We won't be able to fully appreciate it from moment to moment, because we're so eager to learn what's coming next, to get to whatever the future holds. But that future is a world without Mad Men, so let's not get there too fast.

TheWrap

Gone are the days of "Zou Bisou Bisou" and Don's Hawaiian mortality freak-out. Nope. This season premiere, all we got was a cold pastrami sandwich with coleslaw smeared on the bread.

New York Observer

The hour delivers a series of lovely closing scenes that find Don feeling more honest intimacy than he has felt since the death of Anna, culminating in the kind of image and song choice that Mad Men fans find so powerful and moving.

Boston Globe

There are peaks and valleys, but mostly there's a lot of flat, ugly middle. The victories that you spend forever building end up being as ephemeral as fireworks, sparkling briefly before quickly fading back into the endless blackness of the nighttime sky.
