Ahead of the impending premiere of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5, Amazon Studios has announced the official guest star line-up for the final season of the acclaimed comedy.
Emmy winners Hank Azaria (Friends) and Darren Criss (Glee) have signed on for guest-star appearances along with Sutton Foster (Younger), Danny Strong (dopesick), and Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3). This marks the latter two actors’ latest collaboration with creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino after working together on the iconic Gilmore Girls series.
The series is slated to make its return on April 14 with the first three episodes, exclusively on Prime Video. New episodes premiere weekly until its finale on May 26.
Tea Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stars Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, Tony Shalhoub as Midge’s father Abe Weissman, Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen as Midge’s husband Joel Maisel, and Marin Hinkle as Midge’s mother Rose Weissman. The final season will also feature Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron, Reid Scott, Alfie Fuller, and Jason Ralph.
“After burning bridges and being cut from tour, Midge Maisel persisted through Season Four, rebuilding her career and reputation,” reads the synopsis. “The final moments of the season culminated with Midge leaving Carnegie Hall reinvigorated and ready to weather any blizzard. After an epiphany in front of The Gordon Ford Show‘s snowy billboard, Midge is ready to ‘Go forward’ and fight for her ascent to stardom — equipped with her quick wit and sharp tongue, and nothing else to lose. In the fifth and final season, Midge finds herself closer than ever to the success she’s dreamed of, only to discover that closer than ever is still so far away.”
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by renowned creator Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls) and executive producer Daniel Palladino (family guy). The series has already won 20 Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes including Outstanding Comedy Series.
The first four seasons are already available for streaming on Prime Video.
