Mad Men Season 8 release date.

Up to now, it is 5 years since the show stopped in season 7. What brings hope for having season 8 is the ending that wasn’t concluded. The show creators have not given any update as to when the next season will release.

There are high possibilities that the show will have a renewal considering that the break has been too long. However, there are high possibilities that there will be season 8 before the end of 2020. In case of a delay, the show will be back in early 2021.

The plot of Mad Men Season 8

The main character of the show is Don Draper, whom the whole plot revolves around. Initially, he was a director of Madison Avenue and later a founder of an advertising company team member. 

The story covers the main character and the people he meets and engages with. It is, therefore, a compilation of very many short stories that we cannot exhaust. People who work in a very reputable company called sterling copper make the largest members of the play.

Don is very talented and makes the protagonist of the show. His stunning looks make him a womanizer. He is the company’s creative writer of an ad agency. Both professional and private lives are covered in the show, making it a humorous and entertaining show.

One of the people who play a significant role in the show is the wife of Don. He excellently performs as a homemaker. Season 8 of the show remains in darkness. It is a question that can only be answered by having the show airing back.

There are high possibilities that the story will resume from where it stopped. In the final episode, we leave Don getting medication at Hilltop. The predictions of mysteries of the end of the 7th season still go unanswered.

The instances of the employees and their relationships end unanswered. There are still more doubts about how the cancer treatment in Megan has unknown progress, while other participants marry. 

It is therefore clear that season 8 will clarify so many issues in the show. Its resumption is, however, not known, although the plot needs a continuation.
