Midge is gearing up for one last mic drop. Today, Prime Video officially renewed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for its fifth and final season. The news comes a day before the Rachel Brosnahan-led comedy returns for its fourth season. Production on Season 5 is currently underway in New York City.
“Amy, Dan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have blazed an unparalleled path, elevating the stories we tell aboutwomen, challenging the norms in our industry, and forever altering the entertainment landscape with their one-of-a-kind storytelling,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement to Decider. “The dozens of awards cement Maisel’s legacy in many ways, but what’s even more enduring and poignant are the characters Amy has created and the joyous, brilliant, singular world she and Dan brought to life.”
Salke continued: “This series has meant so much to Prime Video and the effects of its success will be felt long after its final season. I can’t wait for fans and our worldwide Prime Video audience to savor each moment as we embark on the culmination of this groundbreaking and unforgettable series.”
Helmed by Gilmore Girls‘ Amy Sherman-Palladino (working alongside husband and longtime collaborator Daniel Palladino), The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel centers on its titular heroine, who unexpectedly embarks on the revolutionary path of being a female comedian in 1950s New York.
Since debuting in 2017, the series has been a juggernaut for Prime Video, winning 20 Emmy awards in its first three season (including historic Comedy Writing and Comedy Directing awards for Sherman-Palladino and an Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series win for Brosnahan).
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel premieres February 18 on Prime Video, with new episodes dropping weekly.
