Mad Men Compelling Storyline - H 2014

It's the end of an era: AMC on Saturday announced the return date for the final episodes of Mad Men.

The Matthew Weiner drama will return for its final seven episodes on Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m.

"What an incredible journey this has been," Weiner said in a statement. "We sincerely thank the fans for joining us on this ride and hope it has meant as much to them as it has to us."

The Sunday slot comes after the fifth season of zombie drama The Walking Dead will have concluded its remaining eight episodes.
