A fresh batch of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel episodes premiered on Friday, February 18th and fans have been relishing their return to the funny and fashionable world of Midge Maisel, Lenny Bruce, Susie Myerson and the whole Weissman crew.
For those new to the Maisel universe, the show follows Miriam "Midge" Maisel (played by Rachel Brosnahan), a jilted Jewish housewife living in 1950s New York City who unexpectedly becomes a professional comic. (If you're wondering, "Who is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel based on?" we've got the scoop on that, too.)
But how many episodes in season 4 of Mrs. Maisel will there be overall? And with a fifth and final season happily already in the works—Amazon Prime Video announced that the award-winning series was renewed back in February—how many episodes do we have until the show's grand finale?

How many episodes in season 4 of 'Mrs. Maisel'?
There will be eight episodes total in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4.
When the fourth season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel premiered on February 18, eagle-eyed fans might have noticed something different with the episode rollout this time around.
Previously, Amazon Prime Video dropped an entire season's worth of episodes on the premiere date. However, for season four, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino decided to release two new episodes every Friday for four weeks, until the season finale on March 11.
“Our show is dense," Sherman-Palladino told TVLine about the release change. "There’s a lot of s*** going on. And attention must be paid. We’re really happy that they are doing this.”
You can catch up on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 4 episodes, as well as the previous three seasons, with an Amazon Prime Video subscription. Current membership pricing is set at $8.99 per month, but a Prime Video subscription is already included if you have a general Amazon Prime account.

How many episodes in 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 5?
Yes, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5—which will be the comedy's last—is officially a go, with Amazon Studios announcing the renewal on February 17 ahead of season four.
"We don’t want to overstay our welcome," Sherman-Palladino told TVLine (opens in new tab) in 2020. "Midge has a journey she has to take. It’s the struggle that is fun [as opposed to] ‘I’m sitting in a penthouse and I’m really rich and I’ve got a lot of chihuahuas.’ We know emotionally where we want to end her and at what point we want to cut it off, we just don’t know how many episodes it’s going to take to get there."
Season four is still airing and production on season five is only just underway—star Rachel Brosnahan posted an Instagram back in mid-February commemorating the start of filming—but fans are already wondering how many episodes can we expect from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season five?

While the official episode count for season five has not yet been revealed, it's reasonable to expect at the very least eight hour-long episodes for the show's final season. Every season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel—save for its 2018 sophomore season, which boasts ten—features eight episodes each.
Given how much the showrunners are enjoying season four's new weekly episode rollout, they will likely employ the same release schedule for the final season, with two new episodes per week. Once more information drops, you'll be the first to know!
