You Can Stream AMC's Hit Series Mad Men For Free, Very Soon

The entire series will come to IMDb TV on July 15.


On July 15, the iconic period drama Mad Men will be available free to stream from Amazon's IMDb TV. The announcement comes as part of a complex licensing deal outlined in Deadline, which also sees all 92 episodes of the Matthew Weiner-created series being carried and rolling out on Amazon Prime across the globe throughout the rest of the year.

In The U.S., Amazon/IMDb will have Mad Men exclusively from July 15 until October 1, at which point the series will also be "returning home" to AMC's platforms. Mad Men originally aired on cable network AMC from 2007 to 2015.

The show's expansive cast included Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, and many more. The series' fiction timeline runs from March 1960 to November 1970 and follows Hamm's self-destructive, supremely charming, and existentially adrift advertising executive Don Draper while also shading in the lives of the supporting cast in equal detail. Through these characters, Mad Men tracks how America and its political, social, and cultural attitudes shifted.

Along with other recent shows--Scrubs, Community, and The Office just to name a few--Mad Men will be adapting its content to confront the show's use of blackface. Variety is reporting that Mad Men's season 3 Episode "My Old Kentucky Home" will have a title card preceding it on all platforms "to provide context for the blackface scene."
