And there you have it. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been picked up for its fifth season, marking the end of an era. The day before the hit series is set to return with season 4, Prime Video has announced the renewal of one final chapter, and the beloved show’s final act.
As the most awarded series in Prime Video’s history, the Amazon Original has garnered more than its fair share of critical acclaim. Scooping up 20 Emmy Awards, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has collected five Critics Choice Awards, two Producer Guild Awards, five SAG Awards, and a prestigious Peabody Award. Rachel Brosnahan has won two Golden Globes, an Emmy, three SAG Awards, and two Critics Choice Awards during her time portraying the rip-roaring comedienne Midge Maisel. Her impressive list of accolades breaks records for an actor to accumulate in any one particular series.
Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke took a moment to sing the praises of show-runners Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino. “Amy, Dan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have blazed an unparalleled path, elevating the stories we tell about women, challenging the norms in our industry, and forever altering the entertainment landscape with their one-of-a-kind storytelling,” said Salke.
“The dozens of awards cement Maisel’s legacy in many ways, but what’s even more enduring and poignant are the characters Amy created and the joyous, brilliant, singular world she and Dan brought to life. This series has meant so much to Prime Video and the effects of its success will be felt long after its final season. I can’t wait for fans and our worldwide Prime Video audience to savor each moment as we embark on the culmination of this groundbreaking and unforgettable series.”
With production for the fifth and final season already underway in the Big Apple, we’ll be sure to start soaking up every-bit of Maisel charm, starting tomorrow.
