The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been a triumph for Amazon Studios since its launch in November. Critics are raving and the show received two Golden Globes, one for greatest musical/comedy TV sequence and one for its star, Rachel Brosnahan, for greatest actress in a TV musical/comedy. Clearly, it is getting a second season.
In reality, it was really the primary Amazon sequence to obtain a multiple-season order earlier than it even debuted, receiving a two-season order again in April 2017. However what can we find out about season two?
The one factor we all know for certain is that it is coming. As for particular plotlines, Brosnahan teased for Indie Wire that Midge, the Higher West Aspect housewife who embarks on a stand-up comedy profession after her husband leaves her, goes to struggle to navigate the totally different worlds she occupies.
Brosnahan says that Midge lives in three totally different worlds – the one the place she’s a spouse/mom/daughter, the one the place she’s a working girl (she has a job at a division retailer to help her household), and the one the place she’s a budding stand-up comedian – and people worlds aren’t all the time straightforward to take care of concurrently.
“[T]hose three worlds, they do not work collectively very properly,” mentioned Brosnahan. “So I stay up for watching her wrestle to take care of these three totally different identities concurrently.”
Brosnahan added that if Midge had been to have to decide on a kind of worlds, she’s undecided the place her character would find yourself.
“I do not assume that she’d know at this very second. I count on that as we go alongside additional within the sequence that reply will turn into clearer to her,” mentioned Brosnahan. “Proper now, she’s clearly giving stand-up her all, however she nonetheless feels very a lot rooted in these different worlds . . . the working world is new for her, as properly, and she or he actually loves it. It provides her a brand new sense of objective that she wasn’t anticipating. However she remains to be very a lot rooted in her id as a mom and a housewife. However at this level, I do not assume she’d have the reply. And neither do I, however I do count on that to turn into clearer as we transfer ahead.”
What might be fascinating to see is that if the present picks up precisely the place season one left off or not. Within the season finale, Midge has a wildly profitable set on the Gaslight whereas her husband, Joel, realizes simply how far he has fallen and the way a lot he misplaced when he gave up on his marriage to Midge. Will the present return to that second? Or will it skip forward a bit?
We would like to see the present choose up just about instantly after the finale, if solely to see how Joel conducts himself after that evening. However we’ll have to attend and see. The second season ought to premiere in late 2018. In her interview, Brosnahan advised Indie Wire that capturing begins this Spring.
