Series creator Matthew Weiner said the two-part season will enable "a more elaborate story" to be told.

The arrangement mirrors that of another AMC series, "Breaking Bad," whose final season, now nearing its end, was similarly split in two.

"Mad Men," which premiered in 2007, has won four Emmy Awards for outstanding drama series. It heads into Sunday's awards night with four major Emmy nominations, including best actor for Jon Hamm, who has never won.
