'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Season 3 teaser: Sterling K Brown makes his debut as Midge takes off on her dream tour
The Amy Sherman-Palladino comedy revolves around an Upper West Side housewife Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) whose life turns upside down when she discovers her husband Joel (Michael Zegen) cheated on her
Missing Midge's satirical jokes? Here's some good news for you. The one-minute-long teaser of 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season three just dropped and it teases Midge's jet-setting international tour and her run-in with Sterling K Brown.
Set in the late 1950s, the Amy Sherman-Palladino comedy revolves around an Upper West Side housewife Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) whose life turns upside down when she discovers her knack for stand-up comedy after her husband Joel (Michael Zegen) cheats on her.
The final episode of season two ended with a major cliffhanger when Midge sought comfort in ex-husband Joel's arms.
The new teaser zooms into the courtroom as Miriam and Joel file for a divorce petition. "Your honor, she is going on the road with Shy Baldwin. It's a huge thing."
The judge then asks him, "And you're okay with that?" and pat comes the reply, "I am!"
Surprised at how amicable the two seem to be, the judge mocks them, "You both seem okay with everything," to which Midge remarks, "We are."
Nominated for 20 Emmy awards this year, the series follows Midge as she hits the road for her first international tour.
There seems to be too much fun in store for the fans as the stand-up comic paints the town red with her witticisms and begins to enjoy the stardom that comes along. "In the 1960s, a woman will take pills to have as much sex as she wants," she jokes, adding, "and the married woman will have a headache and call it a night."
Thanks to drinks on the house, there is dance, drama, dynamism, and much talk about "p***s" too. Midge seems to be in a party mood all along as she steers her dreams into reality.
Oh, and there's the highly anticipated blink-and-you-miss-it appearance from Sterling K Brown.
While not much is known about Brown’s role on the show, the actor said in April that he was very excited about the opportunity. “The Palladinos were kind enough to write a little something for your boy, and I said yes … I’m getting together with Midge and it’s going to be awesome,” he had said.
Meanwhile, here's our theory on who he could be playing.
In all, the new season seems to be a gala affair.
Jane Lynch’s character Sophie Lennon might take center stage, and Midge’s parents (Marin Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub) are definitely going to spend more leisure time. It's also comforting to see Midge's manager Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) by her side. What more could one wish for? Well, there's no trace of Benjamin in the teaser. That, perhaps, could be the surprise factor.
Shedding light on the direction of the show, Sherman-Palladino said in a statement: "Her journey this year that we've set out for her is it's the first time she's setting out as a road comic, it's the first time she's getting paid for this, it's the first time she's going to have consistency, and she's dealing with audiences that aren't her people. That is going to bring its own story twist to it, we're definitely going to some different places in Season 3."
Stay tuned! The third season, primarily shot in Miami and Europe, returns to Amazon Prime on December 6.
