Despite -- spoiler alert! -- leaving Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce during the most recent season of "Mad Men," Elisabeth Moss's Peggy Olson will return to the show in some capacity, showrunner/ creator Matthew Weiner told TV Line.
Moss, says Weiner, "is going to be on the show next year." He added, "I can't say how much, in what capacity or what (her story) is going to be, but she has not left the show."
"When people leave Sterling Cooper, sometimes it is the end for (the character),” Weiner said. “But I will spoil that one tiny piece of anticipation and tell people that Elisabeth will be showing up to work.”
"Everyone was like, 'I guess January Jones is off the show,' and I was like, 'Why would she be?' I never understood that," Weiner said.
Recently "Mad Men" scooped up 17 Emmy nominations, including Best Drama for the fifth year in a row. If it wins again, the show will hold the record for winning the most trophies in that category.
