As we await the final seven episodes of Mad Men on AMC next year, Lionsgate Home Entertainment is proud to give fans a chance to relive part one of the final season on Blu-ray and DVD on October 21. Not skimping on the tension filled drama of Madison Avenue advertising in the late ’60s, Mad Men continues to be a force to be reckoned with. See what special features will be included after the break.
Part one of the final season was definitely an upswing from season six, and the way it ends could have been the series finale if it wanted to be. It was a remarkable seven episode run that reminded us why Mad Men won the best drama Emmy four years in a row. Jon Hamm has not won the Emmy for his role as Don Draper yet, and may not this year in such stacked list of Emmy nominees, but perhaps the part two will be his moment to shine.
Mad Men: The Final Season Part 1 Blu-ray/DVD contains the following special features:
- Audio Commentaries for each episode with Matthew Weiner and Select Cast and Crew
- “The Trial of the Chicago Eight: Part One” featurette
- “The Trial of the Chicago Eight: Part Two” featurette
- “Gay Rights” featurette
- “Gay Power” featurette
- “Technology: 1969” Interactive Timeline (Blu-ray exclusive)

The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
Created by Matthew Weiner, Mad Men stars Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Jessica Pare, Robert Morse, Christina Hendricks, Vincent Kartheiser, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, January Jones, and Alison Brie.
Mad Men The Final Season Part 1 releases on home video Blu-ray and DVD on October 21.
