With less than a month until The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s season 5 premiere, Prime Video has dropped its official trailer.
So far, the entire series has seen Maisel working tirelessly to progress in her controversial comedic career through many ups and downs. Now, based on the trailer, it appears that all of Maisel’s struggles are paying off, as there are teases of a “big break” and “luck.” Plus, Maisel is determined to get everything she’s owed and is done with going back and forth between success and failure.
Everything We Know About The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 will premiere on April 14 on Amazon Prime. This final season will consist of 9 episodes, making it one of the longest seasons in the series. Some may be wondering why The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is concluding after five seasons, and it is worth noting that the show was not canceled. Season 5 is the last simply because the show has come full circle and told its full story. Hence, viewers need not worry about season 5 ending on an abrupt or unfinished note, but can expect a satisfactory conclusion to the series.
Given that this is the last season, though, means that it’s Maisel’s final chance to attain her long-sought-after fame. This is why the trailer teases how close she is to grasping stardom and why there’s a new fierceness to her ambition. Additionally, the season will likely tackle two major plot points left unfinished in season 4, which are that of Maisel’s and Lenny’s (Luke Kirby) relationship and Joel’s (Michael Zegen) and Mei’s (Stephanie Hsu) relationship, as well as Mei’s pregnancy.
The majority of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s main ensemble cast will be returning for season 5. Among the returnees are Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Zegen, Hsu, Kirby, Tony Shalhoub, Kevin Pollak, Marin Hinkle, Caroline Aaron, and Gideon Glick. The season has also added an assortment of new faces, including Michael Cyril Creighton, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Peter Friedman, Josh Grisetti, Austin Basis, Chloë Kerwin, and Lucas Kavner in recurring roles. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will drop its first three episodes on Prime on the 14th and then will continue airing one episode every Friday until May 26.
