“We had a really fun time,” showrunner Matthew Weiner told Entertainment Weekly, noting that the season finale was a “very good” way to end.
“It was kind of like, ‘Oh, you guys are really cool and all.’
We had a lot of fun.”
The finale was also a departure from Weiner’s usual style, as he has traditionally been more restrained and restrained in his work.
“The only thing I want to say is I was very excited about it,” Weiner said.
“I had a blast doing it.”
The episode also marks the show’s first foray into the world of real estate.
The showrunners have said that, in the world they created, real estate is not as real as we imagine it to be.
“Mad Men” season 4 is “really, really hard to sell, and it’s so hard to get people to buy,” Weiner told EW.
“That was the theme of the season.
There’s a lot about the show that’s real, and there’s a whole lot about it that’s not.
There was this weird tension of, what is real and what isn’t?
I was like, I’m not sure if it’s real or not, and then I had to figure out the answer to that question.”
Mad Men season 4 premieres Thursday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET on AMC.
