Mad Men Season 6’s Biggest Question

Did any of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's real estate plans bear fruit?


The sixth season of Mad Men premieres on Sunday night, and fans across the nation are anxiously awaiting the resolution of Season 5’s cliffhanger: Will Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce lease more office space?

Sadly, we’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out. In a letter accompanying the screeners AMC sent out to critics, Matthew Weiner specifically asked that they not reveal the number of floors the firm now occupies. But let’s not let that prohibition spoil our fun. You’ve had many months to consider how much square footage SCDP will need now that it’s 19—oh wait, I can’t reveal the decade either. Anyway, make your best guess below!
