What is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel about?
From Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel follows Midge Maisel, a Jewish housewife in 1950s Manhattan who takes up stand-up comedy when her husband leaves her for his secretary.
The comedic drama follows Midge as she climbs the ranks of the comedy scene with her manager Susie. She faces an uphill battle in the male-dominated industry, but she soon carves out a niche for her bawdry routines and immense wit.

Season four picks up in 1960, with Midge hoping to make a bigger splash after a career setback. After losing a plum gig opening for a major act when she spoke a little too frankly, Midge is having trouble getting booked.
Now, she’s done being an opening act for other comics and wants to take her career to the next level, despite some well-earned skepticism from Susie, who doesn’t see how her friend and client can jump from no gigs to headlining gigs overnight.
“That’s not how the business works,” Susie says, in the first teaser from Amazon.
When and where can you watch The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season four?
In November, Amazon Prime Video tweeted its first update about The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, since the new season was announced two years ago. With delays due to COVID-19, the latest season was one of many productions impacted by the ongoing pandemic, but now, Amazon is ready to dive back in.
Soon after, the streamer confirmed that the new season would start on February 18, 2022. Amazon will release two new episodes every Friday for four weeks.
A fifth season has not yet been announced, but the series has been a major hit on the service, growing in popularity with every new season.
Rachel Brosnahan returns as Midge. She’s joined by Alex Bornstein who’s back as Midge’s manager Susie, along with Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron, and Luke Kirby.

What to expect in The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 4
Very little is known about the new season, beyond what you can see in the teaser above. Midge is clearly riled up and ready to claim her place at the top — and her right to speak her mind. That may lead to some conflict, and not just with Susie. Midge risks alienating her family and loved ones. Speaking her mind is what set Midge back in the first place, after all.
Then again, the rewards could be huge if Midge pulls it off.
That’s everything we know about The Marvelous Mrs Maisel season four, premiering on Amazon Prime Video in February. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.
