“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Renewed for Third Season Before Second Season Premieresby JTA News June 26, 2018
The second season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will not air until later this year, but the show has already been given the green light for a third season.
Variety reported that the show’s creator appealed to Amazon Studios executives on Saturday night while accepting a Peabody Award at the awards show in New York City.
“You’re going to give it to us because we’re bringing home the fancy thing, right?” Amy Sherman-Palladino said.
Amazon then confirmed to Variety on Sunday that the show would get a third season.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” tells the story of a Jewish housewife in 1950s New York who becomes a standup comedian. It is set in the very Jewish milieu of Manhattan’s Upper West Side and is full of Jewish references.
The show, which stars Rachel Brosnahan, garnered acclaim last year and won two Golden Globes in January for best comedy series and best lead comedy actress. It’s seen as a prime contender at the upcoming Emmy Awards in the fall.
Gal Gadot is Producing and Possibly Starring in a Fidel Castro Movie
Gal Gadot is set to produce and possibly star in a film about how an American journalist became one of Fidel Castro’s closest confidantes.
Gadot’s husband, Yaron Versano, who is also Israeli, will co-produce the drama for Warner Bros., Deadline reported.
The idea is based on a recent Politico article by Peter Kornbluh titled “My Dearest Fidel: A Journalist’s Secret Liaison With Fidel Castro.” It details how ABC journalist Lisa Howard helped establish a secret channel between Cuba and Washington after the Cuban missile crisis.
“When I first read Peter’s article, I was entranced by his thrilling account of a complicated, fascinating woman in the midst of a high-stakes, real-life drama. I knew immediately that I had to be involved creatively with telling Lisa Howard’s story, and am thrilled to be producing this film with Sue,” Gadot said, mentioning co-producer Sue Kroll.
