January Jones As Betty Draper in Mad Men


The prestige television show Mad Men witnessed an increase in new and returning viewers, ever since the quarantine began, despiteits conclusion nearly five years ago. AMC showed the period drama, which centered on an advertising agency in New York City during the 1960s, for a total of seven seasons, beginning in July 2007 and ending in May 2015. During that period, the show and its stars were honored with the Screen Actors Guild Award, the Golden Globe Award, and 16 Emmy Awards.


Even though the show has been definitively finished, and the finale featured a montage of the outcomes for the main characters, the actors who played those roles had only just begun their real lives. Since then, January Jones, cast in the role of Betty Draper, was featured in several movies and shows, in addition to modeling and volunteering for charitable organizations. Following the conclusion of the Mad Men television series, here is everything that January Jones has been doing since then.

8/8 Played A Part In A Post-Apocalyptic Sitcom

January Jones has starred as Melissa Shart, a courageous survivor who wears goofy boots, on the post-apocalyptic sitcom The Last Man on Earth since her role as the hilarious and relatable quote machine Betty Draper. The series is set in the late 2020, after a global pandemic wiped out most humanity, it revolves around Phil Miller (Will Forte), who appears to be the last human alive. As he travels from state to state, painting signs proclaiming his survival, he finds no one in his native Tucson, Arizona, despite his efforts to contact them.

7/8 Took Up Tap Dancing

Back in the year 2020, when the country initially implemented the stay-at-home measures in Southern California, Jones, like many other people, started participating in various pastimes. January Jones learned tap dancing. She went on to attempt her hand at dancing after getting the motivation from watching Annie, and she even bought some tap shoes.

6/8 Partnered With Dolce & Gabbana

After being discovered as a model while still in high school, January launched her professional career. January has become a model thanks to advertisements for companies like Abercrombie & Fitch, Versace, Clearasil, and Kerastase. Jones has graced the covers of numerous publications during her career, including Allure, Rolling Stone, Town & Country, The Hollywood Reporter, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Tatler, Glamour, Red, Cosmopolitan, Grazia, Tulia, Tu Style, Maxim, and GQ. In 2021, Jones posed in a million-dollar pink dress from Dolce & Gabbana for the brand’s official Instagram page.

5/8 Worked With Gwyneth Paltrow

The actress made the casting announcement on Instagram two months before her official debut in The Politician, which premiered on Netflix on September 27, 2019. She starred in the series and got to work with Gwyneth Paltrow. The specifics of Jones’s role have been concealed, as do most aspects of any Murphy endeavor. However, as the series began, it was revealed that Jones portrayed the role of Lizbeth Sloan, a former escort and Astrid’s mother.

4/8 Appeared On Netflix’s ‘Spinning Out’

A year later, Jones had a Netflix appearance in the series Spinning Out. Jones portrays Carol Baker, a former athlete who gave up on the Olympics after becoming pregnant at a young age; twenty-one years later, she is completely consumed by her daughters’ skating careers, Kat and Serena. Although Spinning Out gained a dedicated following, the show was canceled because its viewership statistics were not high enough to convince Netflix to produce a second season.

3/8 Starring In A New Film Alongside Jamie Foxx

Finally, after watching the entirety of Spinning Out’s lone season on Netflix, it seems like Jones has disappeared from both the big and small screens. Yet in 2021, it was announced that Jones would be joining the cast of God is a Bullet alongside Jamie Foxx, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maika Monroe, and Andrew Dice Clay. The film will be based on the novel of the same name set in the gritty underbelly of 1995 Southern California.

In 2021, Jones and Malin Akerman volunteered at Los Angeles Mission’s annual Thanksgiving event, which is their most recent charity work. After spending the morning cooking for the celebration, she posed for pictures with a couple of her new friends from the center. Volunteers were on hand to serve dish meals for the community’s homeless residents for the yearly event, which had to be tweaked significantly owing to COVID-19 protocols.

1/8 A Mini ‘Mad Men’ Get Together

Even if a spinoff of the popular AMC series Mad Men never happened, fans at least got a brief reunion of the female leads in 2021. January Jones, who played Betty Draper, posted a photo on Instagram of her mini-reunion with Kiernan Shipka, who played Sally Draper, and Christina Hendricks, who portrayed secretary-turned-office-manager Joan Harris, who played Peggy.

Kiernan Shipka also shared another photo from the reunion on her Instagram story, and it’s evident that the actors had a great time catching up. Jones and Shipka re-created their Golden Globes outfits from a decade ago and posted the photos to social media earlier this year. They also reunited for a series of glam images for the fashion company Rodarte in 2019.
