Ahead of the premiere of season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Prime Video announced that the comedy will return for one last chapter.

"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," Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. "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."

Salke added, "This series has meant so much to Prime Video and the effects of its success will be felt long after its final season. I can’t wait for fans and our worldwide Prime Video audience to savor each moment as we embark on the culmination of this groundbreaking and unforgettable series."

Maisel first premiered in 2017, and has followed the career of housewife turned stand-up comedian Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) as she finds her voice. The show garnered nominations for 66 Emmys over the course of the first four seasons, notching 20 wins so far. (The 2022 Emmys have yet to happen, where the show is up for Outstanding Comedy Series among other awards.)

"We don’t want don’t want to overstay our welcome," creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told TVLine in 2020. "Midge has a journey she has to take. It’s the struggle that is fun [as opposed to] ‘I’m sitting in a penthouse and I’m really rich and I’ve got a lot of chihuahuas.’ We know emotionally where we want to end her and at what point we want to cut it off, we just don’t know how many episodes it’s going to take to get there."

Star Rachel Brosnahan posted on Instagram that they started filming in February, and the return to set is bittersweet. "Rest assured our tits are up and it’s going to be a hell of a final chapter," she wrote. Along with Brosnahan, stars Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, and Caroline Aaron are all returning.

In addition, for season five, Reid Scott, Alfie Fuller, and Jason Ralph have been promoted to series regulars, and Kelly Bishop will return as a guest star. While a premiere date for season five has yet to be shared publicly, season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is available to stream now.
