"Mad Men" Season 8 might not be happening, but people can still hope to see Joan Holloway and Peggy Olson. A year after "Mad Men" wrapped up, the actress playing Joan Holloway is now wishing the AMC drama series would be revived or get at least a spin-off. She even offered some ideas on what Holloway's role on the new show will be. 

Speaking with ET's Nancy O'Dell and Cameron Mathison on the Screen Actor Guild Awards, Hendricks said Holloway and Peggy Olson, as played by Elizabeth Moss should get a new show for themselves. "Joan and Peggy spin-off -- we fight crime," she joked. Her husband, Geoffrey Arend quickly added, "But in the future. They get buried in a time capsule, and they wake up in 2075."

Joking aside, Hendricks shared she really misses her character on "Mad Men." 

"I miss her every day already," she said. "The nice thing is, people are still enjoying the show and watching it. So, daily, people come up and say something nice about the show, so I get to still have those memories."

Hendrick misses the show so much but never thought at first that it will even last. Speaking with E News on the same day, she said that when she first auditioned for the role, she never thought "Mad Men" would even become a smash hit and reach a total of seven seasons. She explained her doubts was mainly because it was a show by AMC. 

"I didn't think it was going to get picked up because it was on AMC and they had no TV shows and it was a period piece," she admitted. "So I was like, 'This'll be a fun pilot to do.'" She was proven wrong since the show lasted for nine years, with fans clamoring for more up until today. 

She misses the role she worked hard for. She shared that she did not immediately get the role. She revealed that she had to undergo the audition for three times. When she got the role, she performed so well that she received six nominations for the role. The actress once shared that she and her character are not that different from each other, out of the show creator Matthew Weiner's doing. 

She said, "After Matt got to know me better, he started incorporating aspects of my personality into Joan. At first, she was rather intimidating and snarky, but then she got more sensitive and vulnerable, which is a lot more me infused in her."
