The last Mad Men poster ever is here, and it’s a bit of a disappointment. Showrunner Matthew Weiner has put together some incredibly intriguing Mad Men posters for past seasons filled with hints about where the show will go in the ensuing episodes, but the poster for the final batch of Mad Men episodes is direct and fairly bland. We see Jon Hamm’s Don Draper in a car, cigarette in hand, collar loosened, and eyes fixated on his rearview mirror. He’s going somewhere, apparently, and he’s a bit flummoxed.
Despite its banality, the poster doesn’t have any impact on my excitement about seeing how one of the best TV series ever to grace our screens comes to an end. Sure I was expecting something…more for the final season, but maybe that’s the point. Maybe the directness of the one-sheet is a reflection of how Don’s story will come to an end. Or maybe I’m way overthinking things.
Regardless, check out the Mad Men final poster below, via Vulture. The last batch of 7 episodes of the show’s seventh and final season begins on AMC April 5th.
