3 Things We Already Know About 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Season 3
(Warning: Season 2 spoilers within.)
So you've finished Season 2 of the The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. You've watched Abe diligently log his dockside calisthenics routine, admired as Susie befriends the greatest plunger in the Catskills, and are kvelling over Midge's budding comedy career.
Now what? After you've chugged some tomato juice and channeled your inner B. Altman style-maven, well, it's time to start dreaming about Season 3.
Currently, here's what we know about the upcoming season:
1. Yes, there will be a Season 3.
Fear not, Maisel-ites. Amazon renewed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for a third season before Season 2 even premiered. As confirmed in Variety, creator and executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed the news after accepting a Peabody Award for the show.
2. Actor Michael Zegen has big hopes for Joel Maisel in Season 3.
Oh Joel, how we love thee. Whether he's grabbing ice cream for Midge at Steiner Mountain Resort upstate or punching club personnel on his estranged wife's behalf in the city, Joel manages to be a pretty lovable fellow, despite his Season 1 transgressions. In a recent interview with Town & Country, the actor opened up about his hopes for Joel in Season 3. "You know, he talks about starting a club. I think that could be really cool, and something that he would be really good at. He kind of rescues his father’s company, and I think that he has good business instinct," said Zegen.
Interestingly, he's not so sure Joel and Midge are meant to be. "I know that they could be good together, if it was a different time in their lives, perhaps. I’m sure they were good together. It’s just… Well, she knows what she wants. She has this goal, and he doesn’t really have that yet, " he began in the same Town & Country interview, "But right now, as it stands at the end of season two, no, I don’t think that they’re good together. He would be holding her back," he later added.

3. Season 3 will likely debut in late 2019.
On The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's IMDb page, the Season 3 premiere date is currently listed as a vague "2019." As Town & Country points out, seasons 1 and 2 aired in the end of November/early December of 2017 and 2018. If the pacing continues, we should probably block out a week for nothing but cozy pajamas and vicarious smoky clubs for late next fall.
