Mark your calendars for December 6, 2019, because that’s when the highly anticipated third season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” streams on Amazon. The eight-time Emmy winner has released the teaser trailer for Season 3 (watch above), which includes your first look at brand new guest star Sterling K. Brown as the period dramedy enters the 1960s.
Also in the video package: Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) jokes about sex, Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) watches a man getting slapped, and the girls take a flight to perform their stand-up routine for soldiers abroad as Shy Baldwin’s (Leroy McClain) opening act. “This is the first of a million tours,” Midge tells Susie as the show prepares to venture out of New York City.
Season 3 production began in March and is expected to end next month in September, Gold Derby has learned. A new image from the third installment was recently unveiled, featuring Midge and Susie grabbing some sun by the pool. Midge is reading “Vogue” in her pink bathing suit while Susie looks miserable lounging around in her leather coat and black boots. The preview trailer now expands on this visual with Susie screaming at someone off-camera to “remember the face!” Oh, Susie, how could we ever forget?
Last year “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” made TV history by becoming the first streaming show to win Best Comedy Series at the Emmys. The hour-long program ran off with eight total Emmys, a record for a comedy, including Best Actress for Brosnahan, Best Supporting Actress for Borstein and both Best Writing and Directing for creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
For the upcoming 2019 Emmys “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” earned a whopping 20 nominations, the most for any TV program not named “Game of Thrones.” It faces tough competition in Best Comedy Series from the likes of “Barry,” “Fleabag,” “The Good Place,” “Russian Doll,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “Veep.” Besides Brosnahan and Borstein, five other cast members are nominated for their work in Season 2: supporting players Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle and guest stars Luke Kirby, Rufus Sewell and Jane Lynch. All but Sewell are confirmed to return in the third cycle, as evidenced by their appearances in the trailer.
Brown is a two-time Emmy winner for “The People v. O.J. Simpson” (2016) and “This Is Us” (2017). He’s nominated again this year for his “This Is Us” role in the Best Drama Actor category. If the Emmy fave ends up receiving a nomination in 2020 for his work on “Mrs. Maisel,” it’d be his second appearance in Best Comedy Guest Actor following last year’s bid for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
