Amazon on Wednesday revealed that Amy Sherman-Palladino’s awards magnet will launch its 10-episode second season on Dec. 5. In conjunction with the announcement, the streamer also unveiled the official Season 2 trailer that finds Rachel Brosnahan’s up-and-coming comedienne Midge adding Paris and the Catskills to her New York City-based itinerary. The sumptuous two-minute promo also offers a fleeting glimpse of Midge’s new love interest, played by recurring guest star Zachary Levi.
Per the official Season 2 logline, following Midge’s “triumph at the Gaslight, the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon (Jane Lynch) looms large, making her climb up the comedy ladder more challenging than ever. As the actual grind of being a comic begins to take its toll on Midge, the pressure to come clean to her family weighs on her — especially as her choices have a ripple effect on everyone around her.”
In addition to Emmy wins for best comedy series and lead actress (for Brosnahan), Maisel last month took home trophies for best supporting actress (Alex Borstein) as well as best writing and directing (both for series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s work on the pilot).
Last spring, Amazon took the unusual step of renewing Maisel for a third season just as production on Season 2 was getting underway.
