The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has managed to have a spectacular run on Amazon Prime Video, but the show is now set to end with its fifth and final season.
The series returns this April, and we have a new trailer showcasing Midge’s rise to stardom; as well as the success of Susie’s talent agency. Check this out:
While previous seasons have shown Midge and Susie go up an down the show business ladder, it looks like they’ve finally made it to the top, what with Midge landing some talk shows and Susie having to manage a lot more talent.
Of course, there’s always Midge’s oddball family, from the perfectionist elites the Weissmans to her penny-pinching ex-in-laws the Maisels. They may not be the easiest people to navigate according to Midge, but they are damn entertaining to watch.
Very rarely is there a comedy series that manages to exceed on all expectations, from the drama to the writing and stage direction. Not only does Mrs. Maisel have an interesting story about women empowerment, but it also delivers its story through such an artsy lens with the long takes, quickfire dialogue, and extensive blocking.
We don’t know what Amy Sherman-Palladino has planned next, but I’m sure the bar is going to be set high if it’s going to follow Mrs. Maisel. You think she can bully Netflix into making a GLOW movie?
Catch Season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel when it premieres April 14 on Amazon Prime Video.
