When the series concluded its Season Four, Midge is down in the dumps, having decided not to ever be an opening act for anyone, despite the offer to open for singer Tony Bennett. Her father Abe (Tony Shaloub) continues his job as a stage reviewer for the Village Voice newspaper, her mother Rose (Marin Hinkle) is in trouble with a rival matchmaker collective. Midge’s agent Susie (Alex Borstein) is gathering more acts in her management and her ex-husband Joel (Michael Zegen) is about to get remarried. And as always, it’s Mrs. Maisel in the spotlight.
