‘Marvelous Mrs Maisel': Amazon Sets Season 2 Premiere Date for Rachel Brosnahan Comedy (Video)

Series returns for its sophomore run coming off 8 Emmys wins

Midge is finally ready to return to the stand-up stage.

Fresh off a big night at its first Emmys, Amazon has set a premiere date for the second season of Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The Rachel Brosnahan-led comedy will premiere its sophomore follow-up on Dec. 5.

Amazon also released a new trailer for the season, which you can see above.

Per Amazon, here is the synopsis for season two: After Midge’s triumph at the Gaslight, the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon (Jane Lynch) looms large, making her climb up the comedy ladder more challenging than ever. As the actual grind of being a comic begins to take its toll on Midge, the pressure to come clean to her family weighs on her – especially as her choices have a ripple effect on everyone around her.

The comedy is coming off a huge night at last month’s Primetime Emmy Awards, which saw the Amazon series bag 8 Emmy wins, including Best Comedy. Brosnahan and Alex Borstein won for Best Lead and Supporting Actress, respectively, while creator Amy Sherman-Palladino won a pair for writing and directing.

“Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” also stars Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen and Kevin Pollak. Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino are executive producers.
