Rachel Brosnahan is sitting in a literal bubble on the set of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4. The show follows the stand-up career of Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1950s housewife whose newly unlocked humor sends her skyrocketing into the comedy spotlight with the help of her manager, Susie Myerson, portrayed with an acerbic wit by Alex Borstein. Throughout the first season, Midge constantly finds herself at odds concealing her comedy career while attempting to uphold her stay-at-home sensibilities. The show has received widespread critical acclaim and became Amazon’s premiere TV comedy, earning the streamer’s highest viewership ever for an original TV debut and earning unanimous praise for Brosnahan’s sparkling performance.
The second and third seasons shone equally as bright, with critics spotlighting Midge’s growth as the bubbly comic uncovering her own dream. Her evolution into a sharper stand-up, blended with her boisterous family and romantic life, continues to delight audiences and critics alike, so much that it urged Amazon to renew the popular series for a fourth season. Now, it looks like fans have a brief but knowing glimpse at Brosnahan’s on-set life dealing with the new realities of TV production.
In an Instagram post from Rachel Brosnahan, Midge Maisel appears to be sitting in an on-set umbrella bubble while filming season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Brosnahan knowingly alluded to the protocols brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic while enjoying a break from filming what looks to be a park scene in the fourth season. Kevin Pollak, the prolific character actor who plays Joel Maisel’s grating father Moishe, can be seen sitting to Brosnahan’s left. See Brosnahan’s post from the set below:
Brosnahan’s Instagram update shows that production on season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has officially commenced following delays due to the pandemic. Reports surfaced back in October that Luke Kirby’s portrayal of Lenny Bruce is keyed to have a more pivotal role in the new season, indicating that there may be more sparks to sizzle between the two comical cut-ups.
Either way, it’s clear that fans are starving for more Maisel. The series is undoubtedly Amazon’s most popular property at this point, both from an awards perspective and fan perspective. Despite the setback, Brosnahan’s post indicates that the production crew is successfully and safely reveling in the trials and tribulations that come with filming during a global pandemic. If anything, Brosnahan’s enthusiastic post proves the new season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will continue to supply the witty escapism that fans have come to know and love.
