Will There Be a ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4? The Executive Producers Say the World Could End Before This Amazon Series
On Dec. 6, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel dropped its third season on Amazon Prime Video. And naturally, most viewers devoured all eight episodes in one sitting, leaving viewers heartbroken over Midge’s (Rachel Brosnahan) final scene. But with the season’s cliffhanger looming over fans, everyone is wondering if there will be a season 4 of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Here’s what you need to know so far, including how long showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino believe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will go on before the comedy-drama ends for good.
Was ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 renewed or canceled?
According to Deadline, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 was renewed on Dec. 12, less than a week after the season 3 premiere. Upon the show’s renewal, Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, revealed the massive success Marvelous Mrs. Maisel displayed during the third season’s debut weekend.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been a worldwide phenomenon, and Season 3 has been no exception, with the series’ most-watched opening weekend ever,” Salke said in a statement. “Amy and Dan have created such funny, charming, relatable characters, all with their inimitable wit and eye for detail, and our customers around the world will be delighted to have another season in the world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Meanwhile, Sherman-Palladino and Palladino expressed their thoughts on the season 4 renewal.
“We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we do not have to pack up and vacate the premises,” the shared statement read, per Deadline. “We’d like to thank Amazon for all their faith and support, their partnership and enthusiasm and for letting us hang with our favorite people, the cast and crew of Maisel, for a little while longer.”
‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 release date on Amazon
As of this write-up, Amazon has yet to announce the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 premiere date. And it’s likely fans will have to wait a while before receiving any news. Remember that the season 3 air date was announced on Aug. 19 — about four months before the official release.
That said, it’s possible to predict when The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 will be released. The first season dropped new episodes on Nov. 28, 2017. Then the second season aired ten episodes on Dec. 5, 2018. And with the third season release on Dec. 6, 2019, it’s possible fans can expect the fourth season to arrive in early December 2020. But of course, everyone will have to wait and see what Amazon decides moving forward.
Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino on when ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ will end
With the season 4 pickup of the Amazon series, fans might be wondering when Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will end. When speaking with The Hollywood Reporter’s TV Top 5 podcast, Palladino revealed they know where Midge’s character will be emotionally at the series finale.
“We have no pressure on us, we have an idea of where we want the Midge character to end emotionally,” Palladino said. “And we don’t know how long it’s going to take. We’re only about two years into her journey because time has kind of slowed down in TV land for us.”
Palladino also touched on the streaming landscape, which typically gives shows about three or four seasons before cancellation. However, it doesn’t look like the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel executive producers are worried.
“I think the cancellation thing for the streaming networks comes from some of these concepts are more narrowly focused,” Palladino said. “In the days of the networks, they were always looking for something that could run as long as Law & Order. Whereas there are shows that it kind of makes sense to go three seasons. You know, it doesn’t make sense for a lot of these shows to go seven seasons.”
He then added: “We don’t know how long we’ll go. But we don’t feel any pressure and we feel good about the stories that we’re coming up with now.”
Meanwhile, Sherman-Palladino hinted Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could go on for a long time. “Dear God, we have enough to worry about,” she said. “I mean, the world’s ending. The world could end before we get canceled. So we’re not going to think about it.”
And Palladino echoed the show creator’s remarks. “The world could be canceled before we are,” he said. “That’s the risk that we run.”
