In case you're just tuning in, the show follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel (played by Rachel Brosnahan) as she navigates her career as a stand-up comedian. After a small-slip up during a performance towards the end of season 3, Midge spends most of season 4 trying to find her footing again.

New faces will include Michael Cyril Creighton (Only Murders In The Building), Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Pie), Peter Friedman, Chloë Kerwin, Austin Basis, Josh Grisetti, and Lucas Kavner for recurring roles, per IMDb.

What will this new season be about?

Currently, there aren't many details about the plot. However, Rachel hinted that fans may see a bit more character development in season 5. In June 2022, she revealed that the fans are "definitely going to watch Midge’s star rise,” per Extra.

And as for Midge's relationship with Lenny, producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino shared that they believed Midge deserved someone who just got it.

"Knowing that season 5 was going to be our last and that we only had so much turf to play on helped free up a little bit of what we did with [Lenny] personally," they told The Hollywood Reporter. "It felt like it fit, frankly, with the journey that Midge is on, that she’s so doggedly trying to find the right way for herself — whether it’s misguided or not — and this mission that she set herself on this year that she felt it was like, 'It’s my way or the highway.' It felt like the shake-up needed to happen from somebody who understood her, revered her."

It's worth noting, though, that the real Lenny Bruce died in 1966 due to an accidental drug overdose, according to The Jewish Chronicle. That's only five years after where season 4 wrapped up, according to Digital Spy. With a time jump, this detail could be included in the show's upcoming season (but I hope not).

There will also be more in store for Joel and Mei's love life following Moishe Maisel's heart attack over the news of Mei's pregnancy. Caroline Aaron, who plays Joel's mother, shared some details as to how her character might receive the news in season 5.

"Well, I think she’s not going to be happy about the choice," Aaron told Express last September. "I think that ultimately the best part of Shirley is that she just wants her children to be happy... I think she will work very hard to get Mei to convert and certainly to raise this child Jewish, and that will be very important to her."

She also added that she believes Shirley will try to convert Mei to Judaism, even though she's not sure Mei would commit. “That probably won’t be her decision, but she’s going to try and make it her decision if she has her way."

How many episodes will there be?

Season 5 will reportedly include nine episodes total, according to TVLine. This is kind of exciting, considering the first four seasons only included eight episodes.

Has The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel been renewed for season 6?

Nope! Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but season 5 will be the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It also isn't likely to see a reboot or spinoff in the near future.

"We want to make sure that when we go out, we go out with a bang. I think it’s too early to think about anything—I don’t know about a reboot, I don’t know why we would do that, but I don’t know," said Sherman-Palladino to The Hollywood Reporter.

If you need to catch up ahead of season 5, you can stream the first four seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime now.
