Marvellous Mrs Maisel returns in the new year

Marvellous Mrs Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) returns in the new year

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has set its return date — more than two years after season 3 ran on Amazon’s Prime Video.

The Emmy-winning series will begin its fourth season on Feb. 18, with two episodes running each week for four weeks. 

The fourth season, set in 1960, will follow on the events of the third season finale in which Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) lost a prime gig opening for pop star Shy Baldwin (LeRoy McClain) after she upset him by naively speaking  too frankly about Shy’s personal life during a stop on their tour.

The teaser, below, focuses on a conversation between Midge and her manager, Susie (Alex Borstein), about how to get her stand-up career back on track. She doesn’t want to open for other acts anymore, but Susie says she can’t get booked, period: “That’s not how the business works,” she says.

“Then let’s change the business,” Midge replies.

The  COVID-delayed fourth season will feature two more alumni from Sherman-Palladino’s Gilmore Girls guest starring: Kelly Bishop and Milo Ventimiglia will follow prior appearances by Liza Weil, Brian Tarantina, Emily Bergl and Borstein.

Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino serve as showrunners for the series.
