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).

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.

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 wonders of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's first season remain intact: the dazzling production and costume design, art direction, and music supervision; the dialogue that fizzes like Prosecco and performances that linger.

Dec 4, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 4, 2019 | Full Review…

As the period comedy returns for a second season on Amazon Prime, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel brings the funny with a superb performance from Rachel Brosnahan.

Jan 1, 2019 | Full Review…

[It's] an admirable investment into its comic set-pieces and lightness of touch, with lavish production value and a script which playfully chews through its idyllic 1950s New York setting.

Audience Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2

  • Sep 28, 2019
    "Mrs. Maisel" Season 2 hits in all the right places! The performances of Brosnahan, Shalhoub, Borstein, Zegen & Hinkle are fresher than ever and they do not fail to amaze. The storyline is still funny and marvelous (see what I did there?) as ever and this is definitely a MUST to put on your binge-watch list. Can't wait for season 3!

    Fantastic show! It's so good, it's fast-paced and the writers are very witty. Hope this show stays on for a long time!

    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.
