Jon Hamm has signed a new contract which will keep him on Mad Men for three years.

The US star, who plays 1960s advertising executive Don Draper, has signed a deal with series studio Lionsgate Television Group.

The actor will receive a substantial raise for the upcoming fifth season.

By the contract's final year, he'll earn more than 250,000 dollars an episode, Variety.com reported, citing unidentified sources.

Jon had been signed through season six of Mad Men. The new deal keeps him on board through the seventh season.

Series creator Matthew Weiner signed a contract in March for a sixth season and a possible seventh. Matthew's protracted negotiations delayed the show's return from this year to early 2012.

Sky will be broadcasting future series of the show in Britain.
