When does The Marvelous Mrs Maisel return? After the Amazon Prime Video dramedy concluded its season 4 with an explosive finale last March, there are still several serious questions worth raising. What’s happening with Midge (Rachel Brosnahan)’s love life? Will she finally get together with Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby)? How is Joel (Michael Zegen)’s family going to continue reacting to his girlfriend Mei (Stephanie Hsu) being pregnant with his baby?
Will Rose (Marin Hinkle) keep going with her matchmaking business, despite receiving threats from some old-timers to stay out of their business? And if we don’t get more Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) antics next season, we’re definitely going to be plotzing over here.
In other words: We’re a bit desperate to know whether the show about our favorite Jewish comedienne will have a season 5. Thankfully, there are answers — though it may not be the ones we were hoping for.

What happens this season?
Currently, there aren’t many details about the plot, but in an interview with Women’s Health, show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino explained that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has, and always will, revolve around Midge and Susie’s relationship.
“The emotional crux of this show was always Susie and Midge—and that’s the enduring relationship,” Sherman-Palladino previously told the publication. “This was a show about a woman discovering her ambition and how she follows through on it. And it was through Susie that she even got the idea to do this. And it was something she could not accomplish without Susie… their bond was what the show was really about.”
So, this season, a main storyline will hinge on the evolution of their friendship. “When we’re talking about, okay, last season, gotta land the plane, gotta bring it home, gotta make people feel like the journey was worth it, you had to lean into really what the heart and soul of the show was, which was Susie and Midge,” Sherman-Palladino hints.
Plus, Rachel Brosnahan told fans that they are “definitely going to watch Midge’s star rise” this time around, per Extra.
And Midge’s relationship with Lenny Bruce will also see more development. “Knowing that season 5 was going to be our last and that we only had so much turf to play on helped free up a little bit of what we did with [Lenny] personally,” Sherman-Palladino and executive producer, writer, and director Dan Palladino told The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s worth noting, though, that the real Lenny Bruce died in 1966 due to an accidental drug overdose, according to The Jewish Chronicle. That’s only five years after where season 4 wrapped up, according to Digital Spy. With a time jump, this detail could be included in the show’s upcoming season (but I hope not).
There’s also more in store for Joel and Mei’s love life following Moishe Maisel’s heart attack over Mei’s pregnancy news. Caroline Aaron, who plays Joel’s mother, shared some details as to how her character might receive the news in season 5.
“I think that ultimately the best part of Shirley is that she just wants her children to be happy,” Aaron told Express last September. “I think she will work very hard to get Mei to convert and certainly to raise this child Jewish, and that will be very important to her.”
Aaron also thinks Shirley will try to convert Mei to Judaism, even though she’s not sure Mei would commit. “That probably won’t be her decision, but she’s going to try and make it her decision if she has her way.”
Will there be a season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?
Put your hands together because there will be a season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But sadly, this will also be the final season. The show made the official announcement in February, and fans were not prepared to say goodbye to the series.
Unfortunately to every fan’s chagrin, all good things must come to an end. In a November 5 post on Instagram, Rachel Brosnahan announced that the show not only wrapped its fifth season, but she was emotional about the experience of filming the final scenes.
“That’s a series wrap on The Marvelous Mrs Maisel,” she captioned a still photo from the show. “This thing was lightning in a bottle. A cast, a crew and creators who got to time travel for 5 years together. It changed my life. I’m eternally grateful. I’ll have more words later, but for now … Thank you and goodnight.”

Reflecting on her time filming the show, Alex Borstein also shared her thoughts on her own Instagram account.
“The end,” she wrote on November 5. “Maisel is no more. I told myself that I wouldn’t get too close, that I wouldn’t fall in love. Yet here I am, heart fractured, with tiny chips now missing here and there … But if and when she should mend, perhaps it will be those empty in-betweens that will remind me of what’s missing. Of what once was. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel once was. And it was marvelous, indeed.
