Where "Mad Men" Characters Are By 2015

If we can't have a Sally Draper spin-off, we'll just have to make one in our brains.

Joan Holloway Harris


Joan moves to Los Angeles with her production company. She never remarries but does find a partner who understands her deeply. She's quoted in the New York Times from time to time in pieces about what it was like to be a working woman in the '50s and '60s.

Peggy Olson

Jaimie Trueblood / AMC

Contrary to Pete's prediction, Peggy becomes a creative director at McCann-Erickson in 1973. She becomes one of those names people utter in reverence when talking about advertising as art. Wins a butt ton of Clios. Just, like, so many.


Sally Draper

Michael Yarish / AMC

Sally does the heavy work in raising her brothers, but once they're grown enough to care for themselves she goes on her own adventure. She gets super into coke and heroin in the early '80s, but emerges by the end of the decade to write a memoir about her life that ties in her experiences and choices with those of her parents. It becomes a best-seller and is adapted for the screen as one of Nora Ephron's darker works.

Bobby Draper


Bobby has an identity crisis over his constantly changing faces. After many years in therapy Bobby decides that his calling in life is to pick up where his mother left off and become a therapist himself.


Dawn Chambers

Jordin Althaus / AMC

Joan recruits her for Holloway Harris to be the Joan that Joan used to be for Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. She flourishes and they form a lifelong friendship. She's very happy she never has to hear another Don/Dawn joke ever again.
