‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ renewed for third season before second season premieres


(JTA) — The second season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will not air until later this year, but the show has already been given the green light for a third season.

Variety reported that the show’s creator appealed to Amazon Studios executives on Saturday night while accepting a Peabody Award at the awards show in New York City.

“You’re going to give it to us because we’re bringing home the fancy thing, right?” Amy Sherman-Palladino said.

Amazon then confirmed to Variety on Sunday that the show would get a third season.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” tells the story of a Jewish housewife in 1950s New York who becomes a standup comedian. It is set in the very Jewish milieu of Manhattan’s Upper West Side and is full of Jewish references.

The show, which stars Rachel Brosnahan, garnered acclaim last year and won two Golden Globes in January for best comedy series and best lead comedy actress. It seen as a prime contender at the upcoming Emmy Awards in the fall.
