The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is one of Amazon Prime‘s greatest and highest rated shows, with over 80 awards won and over 150 nominations throughout its three season run, topped off with a stunning IMDB rating of 8.7/10. The third season premiered on December 6th 2019, and in just six days it was awarded a much needed fourth season, guaranteeing that the housewife-turned-stand up comic still had plenty of jokes to tell. With the filming of the fourth season ended in early July 2021, it is time to look through everything we know so far about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s highly anticipated fourth season.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Story So Far
Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a housewife whose life was turned upside down when she discovered her husband, Joel Maisel, was cheating on her. She got drunk and performed a raw stand up act in a bar that got her in touch with Susie Myerson, who eventually became Midge’s manager.
She had a rough time starting off in the stand up game, as she was a woman in the late ’50s, but she eventually worked her way up to opening for superstar Shy Baldwin (LeRoy McClain). She toured North America with the musician and started gaining a following and a promise to follow Shy on his European tour. However, after almost revealing Shy’s sexuality during her final night in America, Shy banned her from joining him, leaving Midge crying on the runway, hurt by the missed opportunity and the loss of a good friend.
Meanwhile, Susie suffered from a crisis of her own as their trip to Las Vegas ignited a gambling addiction within her. This addiction reached a point where Susie lost all of the money Midge made during her tour. Luckily, by Season 3’s end, Midge is unaware of this disaster but could find some comfort knowing that Susie gave all financial control to Joel, believing she cannot be trusted to hold onto her client’s money in fear of gambling it away.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 Plot
While the plot for Season 4 is currently unknown, it could be assumed that Midge will be dealing with the fallout of her time with Shy Baldwin. It may also continue to see Midge struggling with making herself a household name while still dealing with her family drama.
It has been confirmed that all of the main cast will be returning, including Rachel Brosnahan as Midge Maisel, Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen as Joel Maisel, Stephanie Hsu as Mei Lin, Marin Hinkle as Rose Weissman, Tony Shalhoub as Abe Weissman, Kevin Pollak as Moishe Maisel, Caroline Aaron as Shirley Maisel and Jane Lynch as Sophie Lennon. There will also be a few new actors joining the set of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, such as Kayli Carter, Jackie Hoffman and Allison Guinn, as well as John Waters, Kelly Bishop and Heroes and This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia. However, the specific roles these actors will portray is yet to be known.
