Trailer: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 gets December release date
Staff Reporter | On 24, Oct 2018
“One year ago my old life ended and my new life began…” That’s Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), as she finally returns to our screens this December.
Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel picks up in 1958 New York, as Midge Maisel’s life is on track: husband, kids, and elegant Yom Kippur dinners in their Upper West Side apartment. But when her things take a surprise turn, she has to quickly decide what else she’s good at – and going from housewife to stand-up comic is a wild choice to everyone but her.
Written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls), Amazon Prime Video’s Emmy-winning comedy series co-stars Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen and Kevin Pollak. They all return for round two on Wednesday 5th December – the perfect early Christmas present for fans of stand-up comedy, Rachel Brosnahan or generally excellent television.
“Utterly magnetic” is how we described it in our review of Season 1.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel takes Palladino’s famed repertoire of rapid, oft-flippant dialogue and colourful-yet-organic family drama and blends it with a tapestry of chaotic, cursing, flawed characters to whom you cannot help but be drawn to and elated by,” we wrote.
Here’s the trailer – or read on below for the Season 2 poster.

“I think relationships should be private, don’t you agree?” “Amen.” “So are you dating?” That’s the sound of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel returning for Season 2, and a new trailer promises more of that delightful Amy Sherman-Palladino magic.
The series, which is written and executive produced by Gilmore Girls creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, burst onto Amazon Prime Video last year, introducing everyone to Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who had everything she’s ever wanted — the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner – until her life was turned upside down. Amid that heartbreak, though, Midge discovered a talent for stand-up comedy, one that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive through the nightclubs of Greenwich Village to a spot on Johnny Carson’s couch.
Now, several Golden Globe wins later, with a third season already commissioned, Midge is returning to our screens for a second run.
Everyone’s favourite mad divorcee of the Upper West Side will once again be joined by Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge’s father, Abe Weissman, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge’s husband, Joel Maisel and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge’s mother, Rose Weissman.
