“It’s two steps forward, three steps back, and I’m tired of it!”, says our darling Midge Maisel, the wonderful stand-up comedian who has been one of the most awarded and talked about content on Amazon Prime Video for six years. I understand the double meaning of the audio that is prominently featured in the final season trailer: the formula is really wearing thin, and with it, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel brings the fifth and final season to fans, premiering April 14.
Ever since she discovered herself as a talented stand-up comedian, kind of accidentally, we’ve been following the professional and love misadventures of Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), and when she comes close to achieving success, her personality self-sabotages. She should have learned her lesson by now, but it would have compromised her Art so she never really “gets there”. Still, we want to see what else she can come up with!
Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who has this slightly hysterical and musical line, all the exaggerations of the series work, accumulated more than 20 Emmys, including for Best Actress, Actress in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Supporting Role and Outstanding Comedy Series, in addition to other awards.
To the sound of Judy Garland singing Lucky day, we see that the romance with Milo Ventimiglia will be on the agenda again (it’s in the trailer after all!), but no sign of how Midge’s relationship with Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby) will turn out, after all being him a real character, there is no way to rewrite the tragic end of his life, which is just a few years away from happening in the series. Midge’s parents complain of bad luck and we see that Joel Maisel (Michael Zeguen) is not happy and it looks like our star will be one of the writers on the Gordon Ford show. Will it be enough for her?
On April 14, the platform makes the first three episodes available, moving to one per week until May 26, with the final episode of the series.
Another year of difficult goodbyes!
See the trailer.
