‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 Just Added *Another* ‘Gilmore Girls’ Alum

First, it was This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia. And now, fellow Gilmore Girls alum Kelly Bishop is joining season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Amazon Prime just announced that the 77-year-old actress will make a guest appearance in the new episodes. Unfortunately, the streaming service is keeping details about her character under wraps.

Still, that didn’t stop the show’s official Instagram page from sharing a sneak peek of Bishop’s costume (see above), which features a colorful striped coat paired with gloves, nylons, heels and a hat to top it all off.

The caption read, “If looks could kill. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Kelly Bishop to Season 4 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!”

The news comes just a few weeks after Amazon confirmed that Ventimiglia will star in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season four. Both Ventimiglia and Bishop previously worked with series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino on Gilmore Girls. Although we don’t know if there’s any crossover between their characters, we can dream…right?

In addition to Ventimiglia and Bishop, season four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will feature several familiar faces, including Midge (Rachel Brosnahan), Susie (Alex Borstein), Tony Shalhoub (Abe), Marin Hinkle (Rose), Michael Zegen (Joel), Kevin Pollak (Moishe) and Caroline Aaron (Shirley). Stephanie Hsu (Mei) and Luke Kirby (Lenny) will also reprise their roles.

The new episodes will pick up right where we left off in the previous installment, with Midge developing her stand-up comedy career alongside her manager slash friend, Susie.

Reunited, and it feels so good.
