After five seasons of success, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is ending. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino, the Emmy-winning show premiered in March 2017 on Amazon Prime Video, introducing viewers to the story of Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), a housewife in the 1950s who embarks on a career in stand-up comedy.
The show has received widespread critical acclaim and has been recognized with numerous awards, including Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Brosnahan, and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Alex Borstein, who plays Midge’s manager, Susie Myerson.
As the show prepares to air its final season, the creators have shared their hopes for the impact the show will have on viewers. “We want young women, especially, to be inspired by Midge,” said Dan Palladino in an exclusive interview with Us Weekly in April 2023. “We always kind of kept that in mind that she was a role model even though she was from a different era. We want her to feel very modern. So that’s something we wanted to do, and hopefully, we do.”

Amy Sherman-Palladino echoed her husband’s sentiments, expressing a desire for viewers to have a strong emotional reaction to the show’s ending. “I want everyone to be devastated like I am [by the ending],” she told Us Weekly. “I just want everyone to, like, up their dosage.”
The show’s final season will pick up where season 4 left off, with Midge having hit rock bottom after making a joke about music legend Shy Baldwin’s (Sterling K. Brown) sexuality. The joke leaves her without a job and blackballed from the comedy industry. However, by the end of season 4, Midge had found her way back, emceeing at an illegal strip club and finally acting on her feelings for fellow comedian Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby).
Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke praised the show’s impact on the entertainment industry in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter when the show’s final season was announced in February 2022. “Amy, Dan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have blazed an unparalleled path, elevating the stories we tell about women, challenging the norms in our industry, and forever altering the entertainment landscape with their one-of-a-kind storytelling,” Salke said. “The dozens of awards cement Maisel’s legacy in many ways, but what’s even more enduring and poignant are the characters Amy created and the joyous, brilliant, singular world she and Dan brought to life.”
