Tv Season Info

In the second season of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) finds herself in a phase. She is demoted at work and unable to get the respect of her male peers at her comedy gigs. Abe (Tony Shalhoub) also stumbles upon her secret side job and is upset about it. On top of that, Sophie (Jane Lynch) is still out to get her, cooking up schemes such as kidnapping Susie (Alex Borstein) and sabotaging Midge's spot at a telethon. And when Joel (Michael Zegen) snubs her attempts to get back together, Midge meets and starts dating Dr. Benjamin Ettenberg (Zachary Levi).

Critic Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (27)

Sherman-Palladino has written a woman who's fearless, blunt, and brilliant at what she does, and watching her rise is Mrs. Maisel's trump card.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in contrast still works like a charm.

Top Critic

The ping-pong dialogue is 10 per cent faster, the jokes are 15 per cent sharper and the performances are 20 per cent better. It's the kind of momentum that builds off the back of a wonderful first season, giving everyone the confidence to go harder.

It's telling a story set in the late 1950s that's perfect for today, as well: the story of a woman finding her own voice.

The second [season] is more leisurely, more precise, more enjoyable. "More" in this instance is better.

Top Critic

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel shows us a hodgepodge of stereotypes and trivia, but does little to actually explore Jewish identity.

Aug 18, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

The two actors that bring a whole lot of frisson to the show are Borstein and Shaloub.

Apr 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A more ambitious, fun and perfectly executed approach. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel returns with the same fast-talking, exuberant, go-getter characters, a stunning wardrobe from costume designer Donna Zakowska and a story that won't let the fans down.

Audience Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2

  • Jul 25, 2019
    This season was almost as good as the first season, I still give this season an A+ just like the last one and this is still my favorite comedy series of all time. The lead acting was phenomenal especially from Rachel Brosnahan, Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, and Kevin Pollak. The supporting performances from Zachary Levi, Caroline Aaron, Cynthia Darlow, Justine Lupe, Will Brill, and Erin Darke were stupendous. Luke Kirby, Jane Lynch, Rufus Sewell, Joanna Glushak, Emily Bergl, Jacob Kemp, Connor Ratliff, and Katrina Lenk gave outstanding guest performances. The writing was remarkably hilarious and emotionally touching and saddening. The costumes were magnificent, beautiful, and very well made especially Rachel Brosnahan's, Marin Hinkle's, Alex Borstein's, Caroline Aaron's, Zachary Levi's, Tony Shalhoub's, Michael Zegen's, Kevin Pollack's, and especially the costumes in the episode "Let's Face the Music and Dance". The music featured in the series was terrific. The cinematography was wonderful. The choreography in episodes "We're Going to the Catskills", "Let's Face the Music and Dance", and "Vote for Kennedy, Vote for Kennedy" was excellent. The makeup and hairstyling was superb especially Rachel Brosnahan's, Marin Hinkle's, and Caroline Aaron's. The props were fantastic especially all of the cars, I especially loved Benjamin's car and Susie's moms car. Also the sets and scenery were great especially the Catskills sets and scenery.

    PROS: as wonderful, playful and heartfelt as season 1. CONS: plot as predictable as season 1.

    Not quite as good as the first season but still very good.

    Love it! Can't wait for each new episode.

    I personally like season 2 better than season 1.
  • Feb 02, 2019
    The writing and the art direction on this show is second to none. It is incredibly funny.
  • Jan 23, 2019
    The MMM is definitely suffering from sophomore slump despite the sterling "certified fresh" rating. It's basically season one redux. Rachel just doesn't seem as funny, and the opening story of Midge's mother leaving her family and moving to Paris? Like season 2, it went nowhere. Superficially all is well: the Mad Men quality period costumes and backgrounds, but behind those, the story goes nowhere. Even Alex Borstein isn't stealing the scenes anymore. Too many characters chewing up the scenery. But little going on so far (3 episodes in.)

    In the late 50's, people did not speak openly about LBGT issues; so don't make that a centerpiece for why you don't think a show is as good, vanity fair.
