If Midge Maisel is playing Carnegie Hall, you’d think that would be the pinnacle of her career– and the end of her TV series.
But I am assured that when “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” shoots for three days this week and next at the famed venue, it will be a cliffhanger, not an ending.
“Mrs. Maisel” will wrap its fourth, and much delayed season, with Midge on the great stage, hopefully rolling the audience in the aisles.
But the word is “Mrs. Maisel” will return for at least a fifth season. Will it still be 1961? The Maisels and the Weissmans are frozen in time. But that’s where we like them. For the show to go on beyond, say, 1964, seems like a mistake.
Spies say no particular guest stars are on the bill with Midge, played by Rachel Brosnahan, on the Carnegie stage, although it’s already been reported that Milo Ventimiglia of “This is Us” is appearing in a recurring role.
