What happened in Marvelous Mrs Maisel seasons one and two?
Set in NYC in the 1950s, Miriam Maisel is a wealthy, lovable stay at home mother-of-two and a loving wife to her husband Joel, who has dreams of becoming a comic. However, after a particularly bad stand-up routine, Joel leaves Midge and tells her that he has been having an affair with his secretary. Devastated, a drunk Midge performs her first erratic stand-up routine, getting the attention of Susie, an employee of the club who wants to be a manager. Together, the pair begin to navigate the world of comedy, honing Miriam's routine while making friends and enemies along the way.
Meanwhile, Miriam's parents, Abe and Rose, have plenty of their own problems. With Rose upset that Abe doesn't pay her any attention, as he is focused on other things like his work and how much he hates his son-in-law's parents, she goes to live in Paris – with a desperate Abe joining her (when he eventually noticed). Upon their return to NYC, the pair work on their marriage while discovering the truth about what their daughter (and their CIA agent son) have been up to.
What can we expect from Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 3?
In the season two finale, Midge is invited to go on tour with Shy Baldwin, a popular singer. Instantly jumping at the chance, she breaks up with her charming doctor fiancé, Benjamin, to hit the road – but not before realising that she had chosen to be alone from now on – and spending one more night with her ex-husband, Joel. Meanwhile, Susie is asked to be Midge's number one enemy Sophie Lennon's manager, an offer that will surely be too good for the cash-strapped manager to refuse.

Meanwhile, Joel decides that he is going to open a club, while Abe quits his job at Columbia University and leaves Bell labs, deciding that he wants to do something meaningful again (while forgetting that Columbia actually owns his apartment with Rose).
Who is in the Marvelous Mrs Maisel cast?
