Ahead of the show’s return, there’s now a longer look at the show’s fourth run.
The irrepressible Mrs. Masiel is back! The show follows the story of a late-1950s jewish housewife who turns to stand-up comedy when her husband leaves her. A critical hit for Amazon, it stars Rachel Brosnahan as Midge Maisel, with Alex Borstein as her manager Susie. Not only a critical hit for Amazon, it has also scooped up numerous awards.
As season 3 concluded, after a taste of success, a few unwisely chosen words lost her a prime spot opening for pop star Shy Baldwin. The new season sees Midge redoubling her efforts and seeking to become her authentic self on stage:
Here’s the premise for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4:
It’s 1960 and change is in the air. Looking to hone her act, Midge finds a gig with total creative freedom. But her commitment to her craft—and the places it takes her—creates a rift between her and the family and friends around her.
As we learned from December’s series of teasers, the upcoming storylines will also include Midge’s parents attempting to keep up appearances despite their reduced circumstances, Susie expanding her business and Joel being matchmaked.
With the returning cast of Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron and Luke Kirby, there are a few famous faces too; Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), John Waters and Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) are all slated to appear.
Amazon Studios have also released another poster for the show too, featuring the principal cast:
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 begins on Friday 18th February on Prime Video, dropping two episodes at a time for four weeks.
