Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner Finally Has A New Show

It's not set in the '60s

In 2015, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner left us with Don Draper sitting in meditation by the ocean trying to find peace. As his "om" faded into a Coca-Cola commercial, we bid farewell to Weiner's masterpiece. Since then, Weiner has enjoyed some peace of his own, staying quiet besides directing an episode in the latest season of Orange is the New Black.

Now, the first news about Weiner's next project is here. The Mad Men maestro will return to television with an upcoming eight-episode Amazon series, which he'll create, write, and executive produce. He'll also be directing about half of the episodes, Deadline reports.

While details about the show are as mysterious as Draper's past, Deadline does report that in the upcoming show, "Weiner is turning his attention to present day with the untitled series, which we hear is contemporary anthology set in multiple locations worldwide."

That probably means this new project isn't a follow-up to Mad Men—then again, I'd love to see how Don, Peggy, Joan, Pete, and Roger's children and grandchildren turned out all said and done.
