When is Season 5 of Marvelous Mrs Maisel? 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.
When is Season 5 of Marvelous Mrs Maisel?
The official release date for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season five has been announced by Amazon Prime. We’ll be watching three new episodes on April 14, and then new instalments will premiere weekly after that.
And we’ve already seen glimpses of the filming. Leading lady Rachel Brosnahan was seen with Gideon Glick in her finest Maisel fashions as they filmed on the streets of New York in early 2022. Let’s hope their coats were warm, because it looked like there was an icy chill in the air.
In March of that year, as the final two episodes of season four dropped, Rachel shared behind-the-scenes pics on Instagram thanking fans for their commitment to the show – and a tease of how the final season was taking shape.
“Thank you all for coming on the ride with us this season. It was a season born out of a difficult and uncertain time for our world and to get to come to work and make art stuff with these people we love was the stuff mushy greeting cards are made of,” she wrote.
“We’re hard at work on the next season and hearing about the things you loved has been wind in our sails.”
In November 2022, Rachel confirmed the series had wrapped and said goodbye to Midge in a particularly sweet and moving Instagram post, as she turned the stage lights off one final time.
“The End. Maisel is no more,” she wrote. “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. [sigh]
“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.”
Announcing the end of the entire series, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke (via TVLine) said: “Amy [Sherman-Palladino], Dan [Palladino] and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel have blazed an unparalleled path, elevating the stories we tell about women, challenging the norms in our industry, and forever altering the entertainment landscape with their one-of-a-kind storytelling.
“The dozens of awards cement Maisel’s legacy in many ways, but what’s even more enduring and poignant are the characters Amy created and the joyous, brilliant, singular world she and Dan brought to life.
“This series has meant so much to Prime Video and the effects of its success will be felt long after its final season. I can’t wait for fans and our worldwide Prime Video audience to savour each moment as we embark on the culmination of this groundbreaking and unforgettable series.”
Brosnahan feels the time has come for Mrs Maisel to leave the stage – but she’s not ready to hear the applause.
“I think it’s the right time, truthfully, because [showrunners] Amy [Sherman-Palladino] and Dan [Palladino] feel like it’s the right time,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
“They have crafted these characters and these arcs, and I trust them implicitly if they feel like they have found the endpoint for all of them. But, on a personal level, it feels like we could keep going for quite a long time. The writing is fantastic.
“This group is unparalleled, and so it’ll be sad to see it go. But, at the same time, better to go out on a high than to drag these storylines on just to stay on the air.”
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 5 cast: Who’s going to be in the final season?
Mrs Maisel just wouldn’t quite sit right without the leading lady herself, Rachel Brosnahan.
And Maisel couldn’t function at all without her tough-as-nails manager/bestie Susie, played by Alex Borstein, alongside her.
Marin Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub will also return as Midge’s parents Rose and Abe, and Michael Zegen will also be predicted to reprise his role as Midge’s on/off/on again husband, Joel.
Caroline Aaron and Kevin Pollak may likely make an appearance as Joel’s overbearing parents, Shirley and Moishe.
Depending on how season four plays out, other guest stars who may or may not return include Jane Lynch (as Sophie Lennon) and Luke Kirby (as Lenny Bruce).
Thanks to filming on the streets of New York, it’s also been confirmed certain newcomers in season four will also play a role. Notably, This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia, who joined the cast as a mystery handsome man that catches Midge’s attention – only to spectacularly fallout with her by the season’s end when they sleep together and their tryst is interrupted by his wife.
But it seems for whatever reason, they may have patched things up soon enough, and were seen filming a scene outside a subway station in July 2022… though whether that’s a good or bad thing remains to be seen. Will he be a new romantic interest? Will he even get a name? We’ll find out soon enough.
Meanwhile, Gilmore Girls icon Kelly Bishop appeared briefly and quickly in season four, despite the hype around their inclusion. Maybe there’s more for them than they initially let on.
How they factor in just yet though remains to be seen.
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 5 plot: What will happen?
Across season four, Midge found herself moving into a new realm by taking over an illegal strip club and renovating it. But when the club was raided, she was in desperate need of a Hail Mary.
When Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby) appears to offer her the chance for an opening slot at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, she turns him down. He later chastises her for being so picky about the opportunities that are being afforded to her when she’s not in a position to do so. At least they finally get together for a bit, after years of tension.
In finale ‘How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?’, Midge ends up storming out of the venue and into the blizzard outside after her argument with Lenny, who was headlining that evening. She clearly has a lot to think about and a game plan to consider.
In the final moments, we see her looking up at a billboard for The Gordon Ford Show – the same TV series where she’d previously turned down an opening spot.
