The first season of Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” earned rave reviews, but Kevin Pollak, who plays Moishe Maisel, wants audiences to avoid overhyping the new season.
“First of all, lower your expectations, very important,” Pollak says. “You’ll be so happy with the show if you just stop with the crazy expectations.”
Zachary Levi joins the cast as “good guy” Benjamin. Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) and ex-husband Joel Maisel will remain in each other’s lives, while her parents Abe (Tony Shalhoub) and Rose Weissman (Marin Hinkle) must reassess if their relationship can survive. But as always, Midge takes center stage as a stand-up comedian.
“Now that Midge has decided to blow up her whole life and make this drastic change, it’s going to have a ripple effect and affect everybody else. So everybody else is going to be like feeling the tsunami waves,” says creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
