‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ Makes For The Catskills In The Season 2 Trailer

The dumped-but-unsinkable Mrs. Maisel heads to the Catskills and High Holiday services in a trailer for hotly anticipated second season of the hit Amazon show.

The candy-coated, wise-cracking “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” sailed smoothly into Jewish diasporic hearts and minds in March 2017 and lodged there comfortably, apparently set to remain central to the American Jewish narrative as long as it shall be told. The show, by “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, goes beyond normal latkes-and-bagels Judaism to some deep cut cultural baggage, though all of it is packaged in peppy, hygienic Hollywood backlot perfection.

The very Jewish show marketed at not-at-all Jewish people and starring a not-at-all Jewish actress named Rachel picked up a marvelous set of Golden Globes (for best comedy series and best comedic actress for Brosnahan,) and the series was renewed for a third season before a whiff of the second one was released. We’ll see if it shapes up to its mini-legacy…soon. Amazon Prime hasn’t released a date, they’ve only offered a teaser. Just like a proper Upper West Side lady.
