Over the course of four seasons, and soon a fifth installment, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has managed to one-up themselves and make the scale bigger, the set pieces more extravagant and the monologues snappier. While all of this has been amazing for us viewers, one-upping yourself every time must be quite stressful, and it has been according to Rachel Brosnahan. However, she also came up with an adorable way to de-stress and help the cast and crew by hiring therapy pigs. This also goes to show just how delightful the set of this Prime Video show seems, even during stressful moments.
Filming Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which went on to win many Emmys in 2019, the cast and crew had taken on a much bigger challenge than they did in Season 1. By traveling around the world, and upping the ante overall the stress levels were high. However, Rachel Brosnahan revealed that she had a “delightful” stress relief activity planned involving therapy pigs, truly showing how wonderful this set seems. The actress behind Midge Maisel started her story about therapy pigs by setting the scene on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, saying:
It truly is incredible that she did that for the cast, and it looks like Brosnahan also had a fabulous time bonding with the little piglets on set, as she posted this adorable photo on Instagram a few years ago:
The Emmy-winning actress continued her story about bringing the therapy pigs to the 1950s set, noting that everyone in the crew, even the gruff and tough guys enjoyed their time with the small animals.
This story warms my heart, and it confirms something I already thought was true: working on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel seems like a delightful time.
Luckily, all the cast and crew’s hard work paid off big time, as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel har förblivit en av Amazon Primes bästa originalprogram i åratal nu. Förhoppningsvis, med den femte och sista säsongen av Maisel på vägen kommer vi att få fler enastående komedi och hälsosamma berättelser från uppsättningen.
Jag skulle säga det utifrån Brosnahans söta meddelande hon skrev när programmet avslutade sin sista säsong, vi väntar på ännu mer hälsosamma berättelser när säsong 5 kommer till oss, förhoppningsvis på TV-schema 2023. Men medan vi väntar på ett premiärdatum för den sista delen kan du se de fyra första säsongerna av The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (och se till att notera hur mycket de åstadkom i säsong 2) med en Amazon Prime-prenumeration.
