Diehard fans have had the premiere date circled on their calendar for months, but if you're a Midge Maisel newbie, you might be wondering, "Is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Netflix?"

The retro dramedy—created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the brain behind Gilmore Girls—follows Miriam "Midge" Maisel (played by Rachel Brosnahan), a 1950s housewife trying to make it as a stand-up comic in New York City.

Season three of the critically acclaimed series was released in December 2019 and fans have waited a long 26 months to see what Midge, her manager Susie and the rest of the gang will get up to next—not to mention what they'll all be wearing. (It is one of the most fashionable TV shows, after all.) 

Thankfully, that wait is nearly over: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season four drops on Friday, February 18. But where to stream it? Our how-to-watch guide has got you covered. 

Is 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' on Netflix?

Nope! All episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, including the upcoming season four, are available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, as the show is an Amazon Prime original.

That means you'll need a Prime Video subscription to view the new season, with current membership pricing set at $8.99 per month. If you already have a general Amazon Prime account, your Prime Video subscription is included in the usual $12.99/month fee.

When is 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' coming back?

The fourth season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel airs on Friday, February 18, but the premiere marks a departure from previous seasons in terms of how new episodes will be meted out. 

Previously, Amazon Prime Video followed the Netflix model when it came to Maisel, doling out the entire season's worth of episodes in one fell swoop. However, for season 4, the powers that be seem to be taking a page from HBO Max and slowly releasing the episodes across several weeks. 

That new release schedule means you'll get the first two episodes on February 18, and two new eps every Friday thereafter until March 11.

Speaking about the schedule change, Sherman-Palladino told TVLine that she and co-executive producer Daniel Palladino “f****** love it.” 

“Our show is dense," she told the outlet. "There’s a lot of s*** going on. And attention must be paid. We’re really happy that they are doing this.” 

Daniel Palladino echoed those sentiments, saying: “There was a time many years ago where people thought the weekly rollout thing was over because everyone wants to watch them all at once. But then shows like Succession are getting even bigger, with the conversation growing from week to week.”

“We would not recommend anyone watch eight episodes of this show in a row in one sitting,” he added. “It was not made to be consumed like that, at least not on the first viewing. So we’re good with what they’re trying here.”

What to expect from 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 4:

The official plot synopsis for season 4 reads: “It’s 1960 and change is in the air. Looking to hone her act, Midge finds a gig with total creative freedom. But her commitment to her craft—and the places it takes her—creates a rift between her and the family and friends around her.”

The finale of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 3 saw our witty heroine getting fired from her opening-act gig for pop singer Shy Baldwin, standing hopelessly on the tarmac with Susie as the plane shuttling Shy and his crew to Europe takes off without them. Where will Midge go from here? You'll have to watch to find out!

Will there be a 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 5?

Good news: yes, the show has officially been picked up for another season! The bad news: season 5 will be the last one for the Mrs. Maisel gang, with production already underway on the fifth and final season, reports People

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said: "Amy, Dan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have blazed an unparalleled path, elevating the stories we tell about women, challenging the norms in our industry, and forever altering the entertainment landscape with their one-of-a-kind storytelling."

"The dozens of awards cement Maisel's legacy in many ways, but what's even more enduring and poignant are the characters Amy created and the joyous, brilliant, singular world she and Dan brought to life," Salke continued. "This series has meant so much to Prime Video and the effects of its success will be felt long after its final season. I can't wait for fans and our worldwide Prime Video audience to savor each moment as we embark on the culmination of this groundbreaking and unforgettable series."
