AMC, Starz Confirm "Mad Men," "Spartacus" Renewals By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- AMC and Starz marked the end of the cable portion of the TCA Winter Press Tour with assurances their signature dramas "Mad Men" and "Spartacus: Blood & Sand," respectively, will return for new seasons.
When however remains to be determined on both fronts. Among the hurdles: "Mad Men" producer Lionsgate Television has yet to close a deal with creator Matthew Weiner to continue on the Emmy-winning series. Starz meanwhile has yet to recast Andy Whitfield's title role as the actor departed the series back in September due to a recurrence of cancer.
Said developments could potentially push the return of both hours into 2012.
"Spartacus" prequel "Gods of the Arena" premieres Friday, January 21 at 10:00/9:00c.
