“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will return to Amazon Prime Video with season 5. However, these are the final episodes of the drama dyad series. With a touching Instagram post, leading actress Rachel Brosnahan has now announced the end of filming and said goodbye to her role as Midge.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5: Release date
So far, no start date for the 5th season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is known. The filming of season 4 was held up by the Corona pandemic, but for season 5 the production could go faster. Filming has now been completed and the series is starting its post-production. Thus, a start in the summer of 2023 is likely, but it will probably not be known more precisely until next year.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5: Cast
At the moment, we can assume that we will see all the main actors and actresses again in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5. That means we’ll see Rachel Brosnahan (“House of Cards”) as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Tony Shaloub (“Monk”) as Abe Weissman and Marin Hinkle (“Two and a Half Men”) as Rose Weissman.
Michael Zegen (“Boardwalk Empire”) as Joel Maisel, Kevin Pollak (“Mom”) as Moishe Maisel, Caroline Aaron (“Outmatched”) as Shirley Maisel and Jane Lynch (“Glee”) as Sophie Lennon are also expected to be back.
Milo Ventimiglia (“Gilmore Girls”), who played a married one-night stand of Midge in Season 4, will also return in the new episodes. This is confirmed by photos from the set of the series posted on Instagram.
Reid Scott (“Veep”), who plays the role of talk show host Gordon Ford in season 4, has been promoted to lead actor for season 5. That’s according to U.S. magazine Deadline.
In addition, we’ll see “Gilmore Girl” star Kelly Bishop back as Hierats mediator Benedetta, according to U.S. magazine TV Line. In addition, Alfie Fuller also returns as Susie’s new assistant Dinah Rutledge and Jason Ralph (“Younger”) as late-night booker Mike Carr.
In addition, Peter Friedman (“Succession“), Chloë Kerwin (“Asleep in My Palm”), Austin Basis (“Supernatural”), Josh Grisetti (“Nurse Jackie”), Michael Cyril Creighton (“Only Murders in the Building”), Eddie Kaye Thomas (“Scorpion”) and Lucas Kavner (“The Jim Jefferies Show”) can be seen in new, unspecified roles in Season 5.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5: Storyline
After the season 4 finale, it should be clear that Midge will be trying harder to jumpstart her career in season 5. Lenny’s talk has gotten through to her and she has to admit to herself that she has been deliberately self-sabotaging lately, as she still hasn’t quite gotten over the end of the Shy Baldwin tour.
Comedienne in the opening act of Tony Bennett will probably not become Midge again, but we can certainly expect significantly more comedy appearances in season 5. An own appearance at Carnegie Hall should be the highlight in the series finale, at least season 4 hints that Midge would like to be on stage there one day.
Also, in season 5, Midge’s mother Rose goes to war with New York’s other matchmakers, and Mei must decide whether having a child and marrying Joel is for her.
In addition, it is quite possible that Lenny Bruce will not survive the 5th season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The real Lenny Bruce died of an overdose about five years after his Carnegie Hall appearance, so the series would have to contain a significant time jump if one wants to stick to facts here.
On the other hand, the Lenny Bruce from “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is clearly fictionalized and thus season 5 will probably take liberties here as well and bring his death forward a bit after his drug addiction was briefly addressed in the season 4 finale.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5: Production
The ending after Season 5 is not a cancellation, but a planned conclusion that will give “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” a well-rounded finale. Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, commented:
So after “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino can look for a new series project. Fans on the Internet are hoping for a spin-off about Susie Myerson, but it’s much more likely that Sherman-Palladino is looking for new challenges after six years in New York in the fifties and sixties.
