Amazon has renewed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for a third season. The show, which stars Rachel Brosnahan as its title character, is executive produced by Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, who previously brought us Gilmore Girls.
The series follows Brosnahan as Midge Maisel, a New York housewife in the 1950s who ventures into stand-up comedy. Amazon originally ordered seasons 1 and 2 together, with the first season dropping on the streaming service in late 2017. Season 2 is in production at the moment, and now we know that it won’t be the last run of the show.
After Sherman-Palladino picked up a Peabody Award for the show’s first season earlier this week, she somewhat jokingly said, “You’re going to give it to us because we’re bringing home the fancy thing, right?” Amazon Studios chief Jennifer Salke confirmed later in the night that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 3 is officially going to happen.
“I’ve been told a few things that I cannot share at this time,” Brosnahan previously told IndieWire with regards to the show’s upcoming plots. She added this:
“But without giving anything away, I know that’s certainly something that we’ll be exploring in Season 2 is Midge’s three very distinctly different worlds. She’s a mother and a daughter and a wife…ish. By the time we leave her at the end of Season 1, she’s a working woman with a job, and she’s also trying her hand at stand-up comedy. And those three worlds, they don’t work together very well. So I look forward to watching her struggle to maintain those three different identities simultaneously.”
We’ll bring you more news on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s upcoming second and third seasons as and when we hear it. Both seasons are expected to have ten episodes.
