When will The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel return for season 5 and what will the final season of Amazon Prime’s hit comedy be about? Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) is set to take her final bow in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5. The 8-episode Mrs. Maisel season 4 just wrapped on Amazon Prime, which sets the stage for Midge’s final act as she moves forward with her controversial stand-up comedy career.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4 marked huge changes for Midge, who rebounded after getting fired by Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain) by becoming the in-house comic at the Wolford, a Manhattan strip club. Meanwhile, Midge’s manager, Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein), expanded her agency and even got a new magician client while severing her ties to Sophie Lennon (Jane Lynch). Midge’s ex-husband, Joel (Michael Zegen) and his girlfriend Mei Lin (Stephanie Hsu) were shocked to find out they’re pregnant. As Midge’s father, Abe Weissman (Tony Shalhoub) began working as the Village Voice‘s theatre critic, her mother Rose (Marin Hinkle), made enemies when she started a matchmaking business. In addition, Gilmore Girls‘ Milo Ventimiglia, Kelly Bishop, and director John Waters made guest appearances in Mrs. Maisel season 4.
All good things must come to an end, but the Emmy-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel gets to go out on its own terms and, hopefully, on a high note. With one last season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel still to come, here’s everything we know about Midge’s grand finale.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Renewal Status
Amazon Prime Video officially renewed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for season 5 on February 17, 2022, one day before the first two episodes of season 4 premiered on the streamer. The downside is the confirmation that Mrs. Maisel season 5 will be the end of the series. As Mrs. Maisel‘s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino explained to TVLine in 2020: “We don’t want to overstay our welcome. Midge has a journey she has to take. It’s the struggle that is fun [as opposed to], ‘I’m sitting in a penthouse and I’m really rich and I’ve got a lot of chihuahuas.’ We know emotionally where we want to end her and at what point we want to cut it off.”
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Possible Release Date
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s season 5 announcement also confirmed that filming was already underway in New York City as of February 17, 2022. Like season 4, Mrs. Maisel season 5 will likely be produced with COVID-19 protocols in place, which will slow down production to keep the cast and crew safe. It’s unlikely Amazon Prime will premiere Mrs. Maisel season 5 before early-to-mid 2023.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Returning Cast & Story Details
The entire cast of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is expected to return for season 5, including headliners Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Stephanie Hsu, Kevin Pollack as Moishe Maisel, and Caroline Aaron as Shirley Maisel. It’s also safe to expect Luke Kirby to return as Lenny Bruce and Jane Lynch to reprise her role as Sophie Lennon. The Mrs. Maisel cast expanded in season 4 with the addition of Alfie the Magician (Gideon Glick), Susie’s new secretary Dinah (Alfie Fuller), and Hari Nef as L. Roy Dunham, Midge’s gossip columnist arch enemy. It’s also possible other characters like LeRoy McClain’s Shy Baldwin could also return in the final season of Mrs. Maisel.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s story has always centered on Midge’s stand-up comedy career and season 5 is her last chance to make her dreams come true and become the star she’s meant to be. Considering how Mrs. Maisel season 4 ended, this entails Midge leaving her job at the Wolford and once again taking gigs to raise her profile. Meanwhile, the wacky Maisel and Weissman clans have their own problems, like Rose going to war with her enemy matchmakers in New York. Considering how far Midge has come already, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 is set to be a true grand finale for the comedienne and for one of Amazon Prime Video’s most acclaimed series.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
