The Cast of ‘Mad Men’ on the Final Season and More

Though the AMC television series Mad Men might not carry the same cultural weight that it did a few years ago (splitting your final season over two years might do that to you), the second half of the show’s final season is expected to be full of powerful performances from its ensemble cast. With the first half of the final season being released on Blu-ray and DVD today, it’s worth viewing this video of a panel of the cast that was recorded shortly after that first half finished airing.

Moderated by BuzzFeed’s Jarett Wieselman, this panel of the cast of Mad Men (sponsored by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation) from June 2014 features Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, John Slattery, Kevin Rahm, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Kiernan Shipka, and Jay Ferguson. They talk about working on the series as a whole and their preparation for the final season of the series, which will resume sometime in 2015. You can view the video above.
