‘Mrs. Maisel’ Updates: First Teaser For Season 4 & Premiere Date Revealed



‘Mrs. Maisel’ Updates: First Teaser For Season 4 & Premiere Date Revealed

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ is going to marvel us big time in 2022! Midge and Susie are back in the first season 4 teaser, which was released on November 30. Plus, the season 4 premiere date has been revealed!

After a long wait, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will return for season 4 on February 18, 2022. Prime Video released the first of four teasers on November 30. Even though it’s been a while since we’ve seen our beloved Midge, she hasn’t lost a bit of her spunk.

Like many TV productions, there was a delay in Mrs. Maisel’s filming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, season 4 production finally got underway for season 4 in Jan. 2021 in New York City. The news of the show’s season 4 renewal was revealed in December 2019, so fans have been waiting a long time already for season 4. “We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we do not have to pack up and vacate the premises,” creator and EP Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino said in a statement. “We’d like to thank Amazon for all their faith and support, their partnership and enthusiasm, and for letting us hang with our favorite people, the cast and crew of Maisel, for a little while longer.”

Mrs. Maisel continues to be a global hit for Amazon. Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said in her statement about the show’s season 4 renewal that the show had its “most-watched opening weekend ever” with the launch of season 3 in Dec. 2019. “Amy and Dan have created such funny, charming, relatable characters, all with their inimitable wit and eye for detail, and our customers around the world will be delighted to have another season in the world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Jennifer’s statement continued. From season 4 filming updates to the cast, this is the latest news that we know about Mrs. Maisel season 4.

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 First Look

The first teaser for season 4 to be released focused on the Mrs. Maisel dynamic duo: Midge and Susie. Susie is trying to move past the Shy Baldwin debacle and look ahead to the next gig. Midge makes a bold declaration, “No more opening act gigs. I will only do gigs where I can say what I want. That’s what Lenny would do.”

Susie is a bit taken aback. She tells Midge that Lenny is Lenny Bruce, and that’s why he can do and say the things he does. “Make me Lenny Bruce. Make me a headliner.” When Susie admits that this is not how the business works. “Then lets change the business,” Midge replies.

How To Watch ‘Mrs. Maisel’

Like all previous seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, season 4 will premiere on Prime Video. Unlike the past 3 seasons, season 4 will have two new episodes dropping every Friday on Prime Video for four weeks. The previous 3 seasons are available to watch on Prime Video now.

Season 4 Filming

Mrs. Maisel was one of the many shows delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, so the wait for the fourth season has been a long one. In Oct. 2020, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed at the Woodstock Film Festival virtual panel discussion that the show was set to start back on Jan. 7, 2021. “Costume fittings are happening [now], sets are being built like mad. All of the stuff is happening,” she told TVLine. “We’re breaking our stories, we’re writing. And then in December we’re dragging the actors in and we’re going to table read the scripts. And then, come January 7, it’s, ‘On your mark, get set, go.’”

Executive producer Daniel Palladino also revealed at the Woodstock Film Festival that there will be “a lot more visual effects” due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “Last season, our premiere had 850 extras in an airplane hangar. We cannot do that,” he said. But he promised season 4 is “going to happen, it’s just going to happen in a slightly different way.”

Over the past few months, the cast and crew have been making preparations to start filming at the top of 2021. “We were supposed to go back in June, and obviously it wasn’t safe to do that then,” star Rachel Brosnahan said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show in Dec. 2020. “I just actually came from a wig and shoe and hat fitting. Literally just 20 minutes ago, walked in the door.” She added, “So, we are in the process of getting ready to go back hopefully safely in January, and are really, really excited. The hats are insane. The hats are out of control. We may have lost our minds with the hats this season.”

Rachel posted an Instagram photo of her first costume fitting for season 4 in Sept. 2020. She was masked, along with the designers. Rachel wore a gorgeous beige dress and an elaborate black hat. “We’re slowly and safely getting back to it but first costume fitting is in the books,” she wrote.

Rachel revealed that season 4 filming had started on Jan. 20, 2021. She posted a photo on Instagram highlighting the memorable day. “It looks a little different this year…but we’re back! Working away on @maiseltv Season 4,” she captioned the photo.

Rachel was spotted filming season 4 in New York City on March 2, 2021. Rachel was seen wearing a pink coat and hat, along with matching pink heels. She held an umbrella over her head to protect her perfectly-coiffed Midge hair.

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 Cast

Rachel will be returning as the one and only Midge Maisel. The Golden Globe winner will be joined by her fellow castmates. The other cast members expected to return include Alex Borstein (Susie), Michael Zegen (Joel), Tony Shalhoub (Abe), Marin Hinkle (Rose), Kevin Pollak (Moishe), and Caroline Aaron (Shirley). As for new characters, we finally have some good scoop.

On June 10, it was confirmed by TVLine that Milo Ventimiglia would have a guest stint in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4. This marks a Gilmore Girls reunion between Milo and the Mrs. Maisel EPs. Milo rose to fame as fan fave Jess on Gilmore Girls, which was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Amazon confirmed Milo would be guest-starring, but the studio declined to give character details. Milo is one of many Gilmore Girls alums to appear on Mrs. Maisel. Alex Borstein, Emily Bergl, Liza Weil, and Brian Tarantina all previously worked with Amy on Gilmore Girls before heading to Maisel.

Veep’s Reid Scott and Marriage Story’s Gideon Glick will have recurring roles on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4, according to Deadline. Character details have not yet been revealed, but both Reid and Gideon will appear in “multi-episode arcs.”

As for other notable characters in the Mrs. Maisel universe, Sterling K. Brown is down to bring back Reggie, Shy Baldwin’s manager. “Hopefully there will be room for me to revisit the show in the future,” the This Is Us star told Glamour. Stephanie Hsu was introduced as Mei, Joel’s new love interest, in season 3. Amy revealed to Glamour that Stephanie would be back for season 4. When it comes to more scenes between Joel, Mei, and Midge, Amy noted, “Oh, you’ll get them.”

What about Lenny Bruce, you ask? Emmy winner Luke Kirby will be back in season 4. “He’s going to be in a little bit more [in season 4], which is great,” Amy said at the Woodstock Film Festival, according to TVLine. In season 3, Lenny and Midge had the ultimate will-they-or-won’t-they moment. Their intimate night out in Miami included drinks, dancing, and a lot of staring. At one point, Midge called Lenny out for “still staring” at her. He simply replied, “So are you.”

They walked back to Lenny’s hotel room together. Lenny opened the door waiting for Midge to go in, but she didn’t. She decided to get a cab and go home. As she walked away, Lenny asked, “Maybe someday? Before I’m dead?” She responded, “It’s a date!” Their chemistry continues to be explosive, and fans have been itching for these characters to get together for some time now.

What Happened In Season 3?

Season 3 ended with Midge and Susie being fired from the second leg of Shy Baldwin’s (LeRoy McClain) tour. Shy’s manager, Reggie, cut them from the tour. Midge and Susie are forced to watch Shy’s plane take off right in front of their eyes. The firing came after Midge joked about Shy’s sexuality and basically outed him as a gay man to the audience at the Apollo. Reggie admits to Midge and Susie that he partly blames himself for how things ended up because he encouraged Midge to talk about Shy. He just didn’t know that she knew Shy is gay.

On top of this firing, Susie has gambled away the money that Midge was planning to use as a down payment on her old apartment. Susie believes she can replace the cash she gambled away with the insurance money she thinks she’ll be able to collect by burning down her dead mother’s house, but nothing in life is ever that easy. The thing is, Midge doesn’t know about any of this, nor is she aware that Joel has actually been managing her money this whole time.

Season 4 Plot

Amy noted that season 4 will explore the aftermath of Midge’s major career setback. “I think we’re going to pick up right after that,” Sherman-Palladino revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in Aug. 2020. “We may be doing a little jump within the season, but when we first start up we want to [stay in that time]. I mean, what’s the fun of totally destroying someone’s soul and heart and not getting to see the aftermath? That’s what comedy’s made of, soul-crushing defeat.”

As of Dec. 2020, Rachel had yet to see a script. “I have absolutely no idea what’s happening… I am being a hundred percent honest. I haven’t seen a script. I haven’t seen anything,” she said on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “I have no idea what’s happening this season. So I am just as excited as everyone else to find out.”

If the show does incorporate a time jump into season 4, that could put the timeline closer to Lenny Bruce’s real-life death. Lenny tragically died of a morphine overdose at the age of 40 in 1966. There’s no doubt that Lenny’s sudden death would devastate Midge.

Amy confirmed that the show would address Lenny’s death at some point during the show’s run. “The minute you put Lenny Bruce in it, you know where you’re going,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “You can’t pretend it’s not gonna happen.” She added that Lenny’s death could be a “cautionary tale” for Midge when it comes to “following your dream and the fact that every dream comes with consequences, and it can go great, or it can go off the rails.”

Season 4 could feature a serious falling out between Midge and Susie. Given Susie’s gambling problem and handling (or lack thereof) of Midge’s money, Midge could push Susie away. It’s only a matter of time before Midge learns the truth. Midge would likely not be happy with her ex-husband, Joel, for continuing to handle her money — as Susie’s urging — without telling her. Joel and Midge are technically still married, so they could end up pursuing the divorce route again over this.

Midge’s parents, Abe and Rose, lost their lavish Upper West Side apartment early on in season 3 after Abe quit his job at Columbia University. Given that he’s now working as a theater critic for the Village Voice, it’s unlikely Abe and Rose will be going back to the way they once lived any time soon.

Chrissy Teigen Puts Makeup On Only Half Her Face To Reveal What She Looks Like With & Without It



Chrissy Teigen

The cookbook author let her fans see how she looks au natural versus bronzer, eyeliner and mascara applied! Check it out here!

Flawless either way! Chrissy Teigen showed off what she looks like with or without makeup and the result is the always the same: gorgeous! Taking to her Instagram on Friday (January 28), the cookbook author, 36, shared a selfie (below) with one side of her face au natural and the other side of her face done up with bronzer, dark eyeliner, smokey eye shadow, thick mascara and a little bit of contouring. She captioned the self-imposed side-by-side, “No-makeup makeup.”

Her adoring fans were quick to comment on the fascinating reveal, as one wrote, “I like the No makeup,” while another shared, “Still beautiful both ways.” One also joked, “I didn’t have my glasses on and thought at first somebody gave you a black eye.” Chrissy’s model friend Ashley Everett even posted, “I’m SHOOK at how symmetrical your face is!!!!”

While Chrissy was showing off how she transforms her face with some makeup tricks, she also recently revealed how she does it with a little outside help. In November, she shared with her fans that she had undergone an eyebrow transplant, a procedure where hair from a patient’s head is placed on the eyebrows to create fuller brows. A few months before that, the mother of two underwent a cosmetic surgical procedure to get fat removed from her cheeks.

Chrissy also recently expressed how happy and healthy she feels with her transformation on the inside. On Wednesday (January 6), Chrissy revealed she was celebrating six months of sobriety. “Honestly, [it] kind of sucks saying it because even though I don’t ever crave it now, time has not exactly flown by haha. I prob won’t be excited til a larger milestone like at leasssst 5 years, and sometimes I don’t even know if I necessarily won’t ever drink again?”

“I have no idea what I’m doing, honestly,” wrote Chrissy, “but I do know a few things: I now have endless energy, way less anxiety (no more benzos!) and I am *happier* and more present than ever. It’s pretty cool. I look forward to having my full body reset after 1 year, then reevaluating to see my new hopes and wishes for the future! Let’s goooo.”

‘RHONJ’s Jackie Goldschneider Talks ‘Epic’ Season 12 Fight & Her Hope For Caroline Manzo’s Return



Jackie Goldschneider

Season 12 of ‘RHONJ’ will be a ‘wild ride’ for viewers, Jackie Goldschneider revealed during the latest episode of the ‘Pay Attention Puh-Lease!’ podcast.

Buckle up, Bravo fans. We’re about to be gifted with a whole new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and according to Jackie Goldschneider, we’re in for a treat. During her appearance on the Jan. 28 episode of the Pay Attention Puh-Lease! podcast, Jackie teased a lot about Season 12, including an “epic, epic fight”, the cast’s “wild” trip to Nashville, and more. Plus, she told us which OG she’d like to see return to the series.

So what exactly are you going to see when Season 12 debuts on Feb. 1? Well, for starters, Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs will get into a major feud and it’ll lead to a “wild” fight in Nashville. Of that fight, Jackie told us, “Margaret does go places where the rest of the cast is scared to go. Everyone had questions about [Teresa’s boyfriend] Luis [Ruelas] — [and] rightfully so because there was a lot in the press. And there was a lot on social media. There were a lot of rumors. I don’t partake in rumors because I know how badly it hurt me, but there was a lot out there and I think that Teresa didn’t want any questions being asked. And I think that type of hypocrisy didn’t sit well with many of us, including Margaret, who’s the least scared of anybody.”

Shortly before the cast started filming Season 12, a video of Luis emerged online. It showed him at some sort of rehabilitation camp, and while the ladies became curious about it, Teresa did her best to shut down any talk of it. “Margaret asked some questions, and it rubbed Teresa the wrong way, and I think you really see that explode,” Jackie told us.

And that drama, which kicks off in Episode 1, carries on throughout the season and it comes to a head when everyone travels to Nashville. “Nashville was a wild ride,” Jackie said of the group’s cast trip this season, as she further explained that the getaway includes “an epic, epic fight”. And the one she’s referring to is the one in the trailer, in which Teresa throws her dishes at Margaret and calls her “white trash”.

But Nashville wasn’t just about the drama. Jackie also revealed that the ladies had a lot of fun together, and she instantly clicked with Traci Lynn Johnson, who joins the show as a “friend” of the housewives this season.

And when looking ahead, Jackie said she’d love to see an original cast member come back to the show for Season 13. “Listen, I’m in a much better place with Teresa. But I think a lot of people are scared to say anything that rubs her the wrong way. And I think of all the past cast members — [and] Caroline [Manzo] was particularly not scared of anything or anyone. So, I don’t know how well it would play out for me — I don’t know how she feels about me, but I’d like to see her back.” Same, Jackie. Same.

Man released from jail 9 years after identical twin brother confesses to the crime | Latest Celebrity News, Sports and Entertainment

Cook County Jail

A Chicago man who spent two decades behind bars for a murder he didn’t commit has been released from jail.

Kevin Dugar, 43, was released from the Cook County Jail on Tuesday — 9 years after his twin brother, Karl Smith, confessed to the murder that put Kevin behind bars.

“Kevin’s feeling great,” his attorney, Ron Safer, told ABC7 News Tuesday night. “He’s a free man tonight. It’s long overdue.”

“He walked out into the open air and breathed his first breaths as a free man in almost 20 years. It was gratifying to watch his tears roll down his cheeks and their cheeks before (the tears) froze on their faces because it was about 7 below.”

Kevin Dugar was convicted of killing a rival gang member in 2005. He was sentenced to 54 years in prison, according to PEOPLE.

But in 2013, Kevin’s born-again twin brother, Karl Smith, wrote him a letter in prison, confessing to the murder, the NY Daily News reports.

“I have to get it off my chest before it kills me,” Smith wrote. “So I’ll just come clean and pray you can forgive me.”

Karl was already serving a 99-year-sentence in prison for a home invasion and armed robbery that left a child dead, the Chicago Tribune reports.

However, the prosecutor didn’t buy Karl’s confession. And another decade went by before the wheels of justice slowly turned in Kevin’s direction.

Kevin still has to prove his innocence at a later court date. But for now, he is a free man.

“We are gratified that Judge Hooks carefully weighed all factors and released Kevin pending trial,” attorney Safer tells PEOPLE.

“I am hopeful that the State will do the right thing and dismiss Kevin’s case. If not, we will prevail at trial because Kevin is innocent.”
