'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 2 teaser: Midge returns to take center stage
The much-awaited teaser for the second season of 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' is out and hints at Midge's rising reputation as a standup comedian.
'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' proved to be a blockbuster for Amazon Prime upon release in March 2017 and was soon after picked up by the streaming service for a two-season order. Now, the much-awaited teaser for the second season is out, and it portrays Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) at her very best.
The 1-minute teaser-trailer opens with Midge in a classic mid-50s beauty salon conversing with her equally hilarious mother Rose (Marin Winkle). "Relationships should be private don't you think?" ventures Rose, to which Midge wholeheartedly replies, "Amen!" Of course, that's immediately followed up by Rose sneakily asking her daughter if she was dating anyone.
Boasting that retro 60s feel, as well as themes and a musical score that take you back generations, the trailer has all but captured the essence that won the series two Golden Globe Awards and two Critics' Choice Television Awards for its first season. Relievingly enough, it appears to persist with Midge's burgeoning standup comedy career, and we get to see her performing to soldout crowds. Numerous bits show her and manager Susie (Alex Borstein) scouting comedy clubs, though it's looking likely that ex-husband Joel (Michael Jegen) will come to play a significant role in this upcoming season.
Though Joel, originally the focus of the show's standup angle, left Midge for his secretary, the end of season one sees him heartbroken after learning she was poking fun of their life and him to further her comedy career. Despite being estranged, he still wears his wedding ring, and the two even reconnected and slept together in her childhood home after their son's birthday party.
Flashes from the trailer show the two locked together in a slow dance and seemingly in love, though it could very well be possible that the scene is a flashback from happier times. We also get glimpses of Midge's father Abe Weissman (Tony Shalhoub), who's at his hilarious best, and numerous bits and pieces that accompany season two.
The dramedy was renewed for a third season close to three months ago, well before the premiere of season two. Held in very high regard at the studio, the series takes inspiration from several prominent, trailblazing female comedians such as Joan Rivers and Totie Fields and is the brainchild of Sherman-Palladino, who is best known for creating 'Gilmore Girls' and 'Bunheads.' Sherman-Palladino and husband Daniel Palladino serve as executive producers on the show which has been described by critics as "a knockout."
