The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Plot
While official plot details for Season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have not been confirmed, we expect Midge’s career to take off finally and her relationship with Lenny to continue to develop.
Lenny Bruce was a comedian who died of a drug overdose in 1966. Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about Midge and Lenny’s journey in the final season.
“Knowing that Season 5 was going to be our last and that we only had so much turf to play on helped to free up a little bit of what we did with him personally. And it felt like it fit, frankly, with the journey that Midge is on, that she’s so doggedly trying to find the right way for herself — whether it’s misguided or not — and this mission that she set herself on this year that she felt it was like, ‘It’s my way or the highway.’ It felt like the shake-up needed to happen from somebody who understood her, revered her.”
Kirby also told Us Weekly: “We felt a bit of a kind of duty to sort of start touching on the aspects of Lenny Bruce’s life that kind of led up to his dying young. We’re sort of bringing Lenny Bruce a little bit down to Earth this season and kind of exploring that a little bit.”
Season 4 concluded with Midge storming out of Carnegie Hall and staring up at a billboard for The Gordon Ford Show; will she light the small screech before the series concludes?
The creators know “exactly” how the story will conclude. “I have no idea what the last four words are. But I am fully aware of the final images,” Sherman-Palladino told TV Line.
