Plot Synopsis

Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL is a one-hour dramedy series that takes place in 1958 Manhattan and centers on Miriam 'Midge' Maisel, who has everything she's ever wanted -- the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent -- one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy... a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson's couch. Amazon released the series pilot on Friday, March 17, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, and four weeks later -- on April 10 -- greenlit the series for two seasons, the first time Amazon Studios had a new series picked up for multiple seasons. THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL had its official series premiere on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Amazon released the entire eight-episode first season, including the previously released pilot episode. In the first new episode, Midge's life is in a tailspin in the wake of Joel leaving. Midge and Joel's parents butt heads while trying to keep their family together. Susie pushes Midge to get back on stage and find her voice. Then, after another arrest, Midge finds herself in legal trouble, forcing her to rely on Susie's street smarts. Abe approaches Moishe with an interesting proposition. Lenny Bruce offers some unconventional inspiration for Midge's act. Guest stars include: Jane Lynch, who portrays Sophie Lennon, the most famous female comic of her time, playing sold out shows and has been a popular fixture on radio and TV for years; Wallace Shawn, who plays Herb Smith, a self-proclaimed comedy writer who shapes acts, writes jokes, and eats pastrami; and more.

Season 2 of THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL premiered on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Amazon Prime Video released the entire 10-episode second season, starring Rachel Brosnahan, Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, and Luke Kirby. After Midge's triumph at the Gaslight, the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon looms large, making her climb up the comedy ladder more challenging than ever. As the actual grind of being a comic begins to take its toll on Midge, the pressure to come clean to her family weighs on her -- especially as her choices have a ripple effect on everyone around her. Zachary Levi recurs as a Manhattan doctor who suddenly starts orbiting the Weissman/Maisel world. Jane Lynch returns as comedienne Sophie Lennon. The series was renewed for a third season on Sunday, May 20, 2018.
