When it comes to spoilers, Mad Men creator Matt Weiner is one of the most tight-lipped in the biz and he forces his cast and crew to keep their mouths shut as well. But in an interview with TVLine, he has dropped a (tiny, miniscule) spoiler about Peggy Olson, who quit Sterling Cooper Draper Price at the end of season give. Brace yourselves, everyone ...
Weiner revealed Peggy “is going to be on the show next year. I can’t say how much, in what capacity or what [her story] is going to be, but she has not left the show.” He compared Peggy Olson's departure from SCDP to fans' fears (or in some cases, cheers) over the Draper divorce. "Everyone was like, 'I guess January Jones is off the show,' and I was like, 'Why would she be?' I never understood that." And then she came back fat!
Weiner continued, "When people leave Sterling Cooper, sometimes it is the end for [the character]. But I will spoil that one tiny piece of anticipation and tell people that Elisabeth will be showing up to work." Whew.
So maybe this means Sal the gay art director will be back, too? Right? RIGHT?
