Do you have your stage name ready yet? Season 2 of the genre-bending dynamic dramedy 'The Marvelous Mrs. Masiel' premieres December 5 and our expectations are soaring. Bagging every award and nomination, the show's return only proves that there are no limits to success. Amazon Prime Video has already ordered for the third installment and given the raving reviews already trending on the internet, there is no doubt the show is set to sweep even more awards next year.

How delightful is it to see Rachel Brosnahan emanate all the powerful female stand-up comics again, right from Joan Rivers to its creator Amy Sherman-Palladino herself, who also gifted the world with 'Gilmore Girls.'

The upcoming 10 episodes will pick up after an insignificant time-jump from season 1 where Miriam 'Midge' Maisel is still a working woman with a job, who is also trying her hand at stand-up comedy. Based on several interviews and sneak peeks, here is what you can expect from the upcoming season of 'The Marvelous Mrs. Masiel.'

Good news: Midge will have a “new level of confidence”

When Brosnahan was in conversation with E! she revealed that in season 2, Midge will have a “new level of confidence.”

"She's got a new level of confidence, about stand-up specifically, heading into season two. She's feeling good, she's on a roll, I think she feels like she's arrived at her voice and she's excited to grow it from there," Brosnahan stated in the interview.

We knew that as Midge found her own ground in season 1 as a natural stand-up comic after her husband's infidelity, there was no stopping her from conquering the world. Season 1 explored her struggling and "bombing" on stage so in Season 2, her growth will be exponential. 

What will happen to Joel?

Haven't you heard? It's the 'Thank You, Next' season. The trailer released shows he is still in the picture but he is just an ex. Afterall Midge and Joel have two children, so he will always be in the picture, as a co-parent. Scott Disick, are you listening?


Midge and Susie are game on

The Hollywood Reporter quoted Sherman-Palladino hinting the client-manager duo will hit the road this season. "I want to see those two girls stay some nights in shitty hotels and playing some dumpy clubs." The stops will include landmark places including Catskills and the "Borscht Belt," where famous comics of the early '70s frequently visited.

Catskills calling

Since Midge and Susie are going to hit the road, they are going to go stand-up balling in Catskills and a lot of insight on Jewish traditions will be shared. Marin Hinkle who plays Midge's mother, told Town and Country Mag that "you get to see all this dancing and the lives of the Jewish families. We have all this laughter and comedy that happens there over our summer vacation."

Paris, it is!

Despite Midge's mother's fear of Midge eating too much bread and becoming "fat," in Paris, season 2 will take place in Paris. Thanks to Brosnahan's Instagram pictures she shared during the early production days, we know what to expect. Macarons, baguette, and snails, please!

New co-stars alert! 

Zachary Levi of 'Chuck' will be playing the recurring role as an “eclectic Manhattan doctor who suddenly starts orbiting the Weissman/Maisel world,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lauren Graham is also expected to make an appearance as the same publication reported Sherman-Palladino is determined to get her Gilmore Girls alum on the show. "I gotta get my girl Lauren on the show. I want to have her on it.”

“Lauren wants to be something very specific,” Sherman-Palladino said, adding “She has it all figured out.”


In season 1, Midge exposes a fellow comedienne Sophie Lennon during her act for being a wealthy fraud in a fat suit. Played by Jane Lynch, Lennon will return in the last two episodes seeking revenge. "Sophie Lennon, as you know, is a stand-up comedian, who in real life is a very smug, self-satisfied erudite woman," Lynch revealed to ET. "Midge, in the last [season], bad-mouthed my character to the entire city of New York, so she exacts her revenge, Sophie does, in the last two episodes of this season."

Looks like there is enough of drama and comedy to look forward to. Following a very successful first season and bagging Golden Globe wins for Best TV Series Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, there are no limits to Midge, and no limits to the show's potential.
