Creator Matthew Weiner is giving fans “Mad Men” season 7 spoilers and admits he admires “The Sopranos” finale. The Latin Post reports on March 25 that the creator is planning to split the last season of the show into two parts. Weiner shares that Don Draper will continue to struggle because the drama requires problems in a character’s life.

Weiner points out consequences will be an important aspect of the next season of “Mad Men,” and fans believe this means characters will face the results of their decisions. The final season will have 14 episodes, but the creator has only finished nine of them. Nevertheless, the writers have a clear plan for how Draper and the rest of the cast will end up.

Season 7 will focus on change that will follow the development of the characters, but Weiner warns that Draper will not have an easy time getting back to his family. The show will delve into the question of Draper being able to change and challenge the notion that it is impossible. Peggy Olson will also be going through changes as she tries to balance her career and personal life.

Weiner’s admiration for the season finale of “The Sopranos” does not mean that he is willing to copy the same style for “Mad Men.” Instead, he seems to be drawing inspiration from the unusual ending that shocked and annoyed viewers, so he can create his own version that will stay in people’s memories.
