Summertime fun may be in full swing but we still have The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on our minds. After the Amazon Prime Video dramedy concluded its season 4 with an explosive finale back in March, there are still several serious questions worth raising.

What's happening with Midge (Rachel Brosnahan)'s love life? Will she finally get together with Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby)? How is Joel (Michael Zegen)'s family going to continue reacting to the fact his girlfriend Mei (TK) is pregnant with his baby? Will Rose (Marin Hinkle) keep going with her matchmaking business, despite receiving threats from some old-timers to stay out of their business? And if we don't get more Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) antics next season, we're definitely going to be plotzing over here.

In order words: We're a bit desperate to know whether the show about our favorite Jewish comedienne will have a season 5. Thankfully, there are answers — though it may not be the ones we were hoping for.

Here's everything we know so far about Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5:

Will there be a season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?

Put your hands together because there will be a season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But sadly, this will also be the final season from the hit Amazon drama. The show made the official announcement in February, and fans were not prepared to say goodbye to the period series.

"Fifth season yes ! But please have 200+ episodes! ❤️❤️❤️ This cast is so lovely, so funny, so real, so irreplaceably perfect - I hope they never disband. Oh the writing! Oh the acting!" one fan commented on the show's Instagram post about the news. "Final season nooooo 😭 i want more about Midge and Lenny ❤️," another replied. "Say it ain’t so. :( 💔💔💔," a different person pleaded.

Who will be in the season 5 cast of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?

Based on the events from the season 4 finale, here's who will probably return for Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5:

  • Rachel Brosnahan as Midge Maisel

  • Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Midge's manager

  • Michael Zegen as Joel Maisel, Midge's ex-husband

  • Tony Shalhoub as Abe Weissman, Midge's father

  • Marin Hinkle as Rose Weissman, Midge's mother

  • Kevin Pollak as Moishe Maisel, Joel's father

  • Caroline Aaron as Shirley Maisel, Joel's mother

  • Stephanie Hsu as Mei, Joel's girlfriend

  • Luke Kirby as Lenny Bruce, comedian and Midge's potential love interest

  • Kelly Bishop as Benedetta, Rose's rival love broker

  • Alfie Fuller as Dinah Rutledge, Suzie's assistant

  • Jason Ralph as Mike Carr, a late-night booker

In addition, we have one more actor returning after making a quick appearance in season 4: This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia. Viewers may remember him as the married "Handsome Man," who Midge slept with late last season. Unsurprisingly, many were eager to see more of the former Gilmore Girls actor.

Well, he was not only recently seen on set with actress Rachel Brosnahan in June, there's a good chance we'll learn more about his character's backstory — including his name. “We will see a nice, more extensive Part 2 to ‘Milo and Rachel,'” executive producer Daniel Palladino told TVLine in May. “Yes, we’ll find out his name.”

But don't think this is the only Gilmore Girls star showing up this season. Kelly Bishop will also be making a return, but she'll be promoted to series regular.

What will season 5 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel be about?

Unfortunately, there aren't details about what The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 will be about just yet. But producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino did give some clues to The Hollywood Reporter in March about Midge's and Lenny's journey.

"Knowing that season five was going to be our last and that we only had so much turf to play on helped to free up a little bit of what we did with him personally," Amy told the outlet. "And 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."

What's more, in a June interview with People, Kevin Pollak gave his thoughts on why this is a good time to end the show with season 5.

"Amy and Dan, from the very beginning, while we were shooting season 1 before anyone had seen anything beyond the pilot, made it very clear to all of us, in success, if we're lucky enough, this is a five-season show," he said. "They saw an arc or they saw a story they wanted to tell. They saw the ending that they wanted to take."
