Breaking Bad Season 5 "attracted nearly double the viewers to its second half premiere than had watched any previous episode,” said Charlie Collier, AMC President.

“We are determined to bring Mad Men a similar showcase."

"In an era where high-end content is savored and analyzed, and catch-up time is used well to drive back to live events, we believe this is the best way."

The first set of episodes will be called "The Beginning," while the back half will be titled "The End of an Era." It's not clear when the back half of the season will air.

Adds Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner:

“We plan to take advantage of this chance to have a more elaborate story told in two parts, which can resonate a little bit longer in the minds of our audience."

"[We] welcome this unique manner of ending this experience.”
