The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5: Release Date, Cast, Plot & Other Latest Updates
As fans eagerly await the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, we break down everything you need to know about the upcoming season, from release dates to plot details.
Amazon Prime has confirmed that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 will premiere on April 14th, with the release of the first three episodes. The series will then continue to release episodes weekly.
Show Has Wrapped Up
Both Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein have shared heartfelt messages on social media as they wrapped up filming the series. Brosnahan expressed her gratitude for the life-changing experience, while Borstein shared a humorous photo of her character Susie on a toilet, along with a sentimental message.
While fans may be sad to see the show go, Brosnahan believes that it’s the right time to end the series, trusting showrunners Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino’s decision to bring the story to a close.
The Final Season’s Cast
Season 5 will see the return of the show’s core cast, including Rachel Brosnahan as Midge Maisel, Alex Borstein as Susie, Marin Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub as Midge’s parents Rose and Abe, and Michael Zegen as Midge’s on-again-off-again husband Joel. Other returning guest stars may include Jane Lynch as Sophie Lennon and Luke Kirby as Lenny Bruce.
Newcomers in Season 4, such as This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia, will also return for the final season. Ventimiglia’s character had a dramatic falling out with Midge in season 4, but they were seen filming together in New York, hinting at a possible reconciliation.
Plot Details for Season 5
The season 4 finale left Midge in a tough spot, as she turned down an opening slot at Carnegie Hall and stormed out of the venue after arguing with Lenny Bruce. The final season will likely see Midge grappling with her decisions and navigating the next steps in her career.
Luke Kirby, who plays the real-life comedian Lenny Bruce, has confirmed his return for season 5. The character’s battle with drug addiction will play a more significant role, as the series moves closer to the real-life events that led to Bruce’s untimely death in 1966.
First Teaser Released
While there is no full trailer yet, the first official teaser for season 5 has been released, giving fans a glimpse of what to expect from Midge’s final bow. Stay tuned for more updates as the release date approaches.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s final season promises to be a fitting conclusion to the beloved series, as fans prepare to say goodbye to the characters and stories that have captivated them for years. Don’t miss the season premiere on April 14th, 2023, on Amazon Prime Video.
