The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is coming back for more. Amazon announced it has renewed the series for season 4, less than a week after its third season premiered.
“We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we do not have to pack up and vacate the premises,” creator and executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino said in a joint statement. “We’d like to thank Amazon for all their faith and support, their partnership and enthusiasm, and for letting us hang with our favorite people, the cast and crew of Maisel, for a little while longer.”
News of a fourth season comes after the series earned two Golden Globe nominations this week, for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and for Brosnahan in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Series, Musical or Comedy category.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been a worldwide phenomenon, and Season 3 has been no exception, with the series’ most-watched opening weekend ever. We’re so happy that our Prime Video customers will get to see Midge’s story continue in season 4,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.
Most of the ensemble cast is expected to return in the wake of a season 3 finale that sees many of the characters in flux, financial or otherwise. In addition to Brosnahan and Borstein, the cast includes Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron, Luke Kirby, and Jane Lynch.
As for the direction of future seasons, Palladino told THR‘s TV’s Top 5 podcast, “We have no pressure on us. We have an idea of sort of emotionally where we want the Midge character to end.” She added, “we don’t know exactly how long it’s going to take. We’re only about two years into her journey cause time is kind of slowed down in TV land for us.”
