Mad Men fans are breathing a sigh of relief this morning.

After months of limbo, Matthew Weiner, the creative genius behind the award-winning AMC drama, has inked a two year, seven-figure deal with Lionsgate TV to continue working on the series.

"Since the beginning, the show has been a charmed experience, made possible by my partnership with AMC and Lionsgate," Weiner said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter. "I am proud to work so closely with these two companies who love taking risks and value creativity and I am thrilled to get back to work with the most talented cast and crew in the business."

With the deal finally in place, Mad Men's writers are immediately getting back to work on the show's third season, which premieres this summer.
