After six years, Midge is getting ready to take her final bow as Prime Video's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 marks the final batch of episodes for the award-winning comedy. While we may be shedding a tear, we can also be sure that the show is going to send us out laughing.

Mrs. Maisel joins a number of popular TV shows ending their runs in 2023, along with Succession, Cobra Kai, Fear the Walking Dead, The Handmaid's Tale and more. 

So when are we getting the final run of episodes for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and what other details do you need to know about the show's climactic season? We've got you covered.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 release date

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 gets underway on Friday, April 14, with a three episode premiere. After that, new episodes release weekly in what Prime Video is calling a "seven-week series send-off."

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 plot

Where will things end up for Midge, Susie, Joel, Abe and the rest of the Marvelous cast that we have come to know and love? Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino knows the last image (opens in new tab) she is going to leave fans with, but you'll have to watch to find out what leads up to it. In the meantime, here is the official synopsis for season 5:

"After burning bridges and being cut from tour, Midge Maisel persisted through season 4, rebuilding her career and reputation. The final moments of the season culminated with Midge leaving Carnegie Hall reinvigorated and ready to weather any blizzard. After an epiphany in front of The Gordon Ford Show’s snowy billboard, Midge is ready to 'Go forward' and fight for her ascent to stardom — equipped with her quick wit and sharp tongue, and nothing else to lose.

"In the fifth and final season, Midge finds herself closer than ever to the success she's dreamed of, only to discover that closer than ever is still so far away."
