There will be spoilers for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel seasons 1-3 ahead.
Season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been a long time in the making, but if you know Midge, you knew she would make a return at some point. A major setback in her stand-up career occurred at the conclusion of season three, which aired in December of last year.
The pandemic-induced hiatus is over, and the rebellious housewife-turned-star is back on stage and ready for an encore performance of her hit show. And this time around, she’ll have some new faces to hang out with.
This page contains all the information you need to know about the upcoming episodes before they are broadcast.

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4 cast
The show wouldn’t be complete without Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), the titular character, and Susie Myerson (Rachel Brosnahan), Midge’s best friend, chauffeur, confidante, and bodyguard (Alex Borstein).
Among those returning will be Midge’s dysfunctional family, which includes her parents, Rose (Marin Hinkle) and Abe Weissman (Tony Shalhoub), as well as her ex-husband, Joel (Michael Zegen), his new girlfriend, Mei (Stephanie Hsu), and her ex-father-in-law, Moishe (Marin Hinkle) (Kevin Pollak).
Also of note for those keeping tabs on Midge’s love life is the fact that potential love interest Lenny Bruce, played by Luke Kirby, hasn’t completely vanished from sight. Remember that the real Lenny Bruce of the era died of a morphine overdose in 1966, so don’t get your hopes up for a happy ending here.
This season, according to actor Luke, Lenny’s struggles with addiction will begin to be played a role.
As he told US Weekly, “We felt it was our responsibility to sort of start touching on the aspects of Lenny Bruce’s life that kind of led up to his death at such a young age.” “This season, we’re sort of bringing Lenny Bruce down to Earth a little bit and exploring that a little bit,” says the show’s creators.
The Sherman-Palladinos, who wrote Maisel after the success of Gilmore Girls, will be joined by some familiar faces – as well as some old friends from their previous work on the show. In addition to Kelly Bishop, who is best known for her role as Emily Gilmore on the previous show, and Milo Ventimiglia, who was best known for his role as the mischievous Jess on Gilmore Girls, both actors will be returning to the 1960s in new roles.
Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 4 plot
Last season of the Amazon Prime show saw Midge reach new heights while also falling to new lows, a feat she had never accomplished before. Midge was scheduled to join Shy Baldwin on his world tour following a successful American leg of the tour, which she performed as his opening act.
Midge was kicked off the rest of the tour minutes before boarding the plane after making some poor jokes that put Shy’s sexuality at risk during one of her sets.
The official synopsis for the upcoming season is as follows:
“It’s 1960, and there’s a sense of change in the air. Midge finds a gig that allows her complete creative freedom, which she uses to hone her act. Her dedication to her craft – and the places it takes her –, on the other hand, causes a rift between her and the family and friends who are close to her.”
So, what exactly does this mean?
We’ll be able to catch up on each of the major plotlines in the season four teasers. Midge and Susan are seen for the first time making plans for where they will go from here. After having her confidence and reputation shattered, it appears that she is attempting to forge her own path in the stand-up world in season four. She doesn’t want any more opening acts; she wants to forge her own path.
More flirtatious exchanges between the two comedians are likely to occur as they attempt to follow in the footsteps of their mentor Lenny Bruce. Despite the fact that fans are hoping that the two will finally get together, as previously stated, a rival in the form of Milo Ventimiglia’s character may appear.
During this time, Joel’s confusing relationship with Mei appears to be on the verge of becoming even more complicated. He appears to be desperate to find a new partner as their relationship becomes more serious. His ex-in-family law’s appears to be equally desperate to see him find a new partner.
Meanwhile, for Susie, it appears that the rift between herself and Midge is becoming even more pronounced. In this scene, we see her purchasing a new office in order to expand her managing empire – Susie Myerson and Associates – and grow her clientele. Additionally, following the death of their mother, we follow her sister as she and her mother work to repair their relationship.
Finally, it appears that Rose and Abe are ready to settle down – and not just anywhere – following their Parisian misadventures from last season. Midge has invited her parents to move back in with her, which means we will be witnessing a Weissman family reunion in the not-too-distant future.
Any way things turn out, we can expect to see Midge get himself into more than one scrape before the season is over.
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4 when can I watch it
The full season trailer, set to the tune of Shirley Bassey’s classic, ‘Once in a Lifetime,’ was released two weeks before the premiere of the first season’s four episodes. The lyrics of the song literally state that “this is their moment.” So, has Maisel finally made it big in the entertainment industry?
She may, however, have a difficult time getting there, considering that she is caught on camera bashing a taxi with a giant tree branch while only wearing her underwear before Susie intervenes and stops her.
Midge is seen fighting back against everyone from waiters to members of her own family, and she appears to be more no-nonsense than ever.
She appears to be a little more hellbent and enraged than in previous years, and she is not taking any prisoners. Nevertheless, we have not yet determined the exact cause of the problem.
I guess we’ll find out in due course…
Starting on February 18, 2022, the first two episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4 will be available on Amazon Prime.
