What will Season 3 be about?
At the end of Season 2, Midge was presented with the potentially life-changing opportunity to join musician Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain) on tour as the opening comedic act, a gig she felt compelled to take. This sets up Season 3 to follow her on this new adventure, and as Sherman-Palladino told Variety, it means The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is now becoming "a bigger show because the story has to push out." She added, "[Midge's] journey this year that we've set out for her is it's the first time she's setting out as a road comic, it's the first time she's getting paid for this, it's the first time she’s going to have consistency, and she's dealing with audiences that aren't her people… That is going to bring its own story twist to it, we're definitely going to some different places in Season 3."
Family dynamics have always been at the core of the series, and will continue to be a part of the plot. While Midge's parents, the Weissmans, have been wary of her career path up until now, Rose still has yet to see her daughter perform and Abe is just now learning how serious she is, so their attitude might see a change. Those two also have another grandchild on the way, as their son Noah (Will Brill) and his wife Astrid (Justine Lupe) are expecting -- which should be interesting, given the recent reveal that Noah works for the CIA.
We do know that one romantic relationship won't continue to develop in the forthcoming season. Midge may have spent one night with her ex, Joel, before setting off on tour, but Brosnahan stressed to Variety that this was based in "comfort" and wasn't meant to imply the two will rekindle their relationship in the future. Michael Zegen, who plays Joel, also reiterated to Town & Country that despite the history between them, "he would be holding her back" were they to get back together. Will she come back to Dr. Ettenberg, meet someone on the road, or remain ingle and stay true to the series' feminist form?
