Ahead of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Season 4 premiere, the Emmy-winning comedy series has been renewed by Prime Video for a fifth season which will be its last. Production is currently underway in New York City. Season 4 of the period comedy premieres Feb. 18 exclusively on the streamer with two new episodes dropping every Friday for four weeks.
For the first time in the show’s run, Prime Video is not dropping the entire season in one fell swoop. Instead, the streamer is adopting a more traditional weekly-release format, albeit with a twist: Two new episodes of the eight-episode season will debut each Friday (beginning Feb. 18) for four consecutive weeks. And series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino could not be happier about the development.
After more than two years, the Prime Video comedy series will be back for Season 4 on Friday, Feb. 18, the streaming service announced Tuesday. For the first time in Mrs. Maisel‘s run, episodes will drop on a weekly basis instead of a binge-release rollout, with two new installments becoming available every Friday for four consecutive weeks.
The second season averaged 1.9 million viewers during its first seven days, according to Nielsen, which released an Amazon show’s figures for the first time.
The Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won the first three awards handed out Sunday, sweeping the comedy series awards. It won best ensemble in a comedy series, as well as individual honors for Rachel Brosnahan and Tony Shalhoub, whose win was a surprise in a category that included Bill Hader (Barry) and Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method).
The Americans and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel tied for top television winners in the Critics Choice Awards with three apiece. Maisel won the top comedy honor for the second year in a row, and series star Rachel Brosnahan also was a repeat winner for best actress in a comedy series.
Associated Press writer Alicia Rancilio gives the top spot to the Amazon Prime hit. “From its costumes to the dialogue to the music to the quirky characters, this show is a delight. Watch it to feel good.”
