Midge Maisel couldn’t be more different than Lorelai Gilmore, but their worlds are about to collide.
Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino just announced that she’s developing a brand-new role for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and it will be played by Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls).
Although we don’t know much about her character, the showrunner revealed that she’ll likely make an appearance in the show’s third season.
“Lauren made a request, and Lauren is my queen and the reason I have a career, so I honor the request of Lauren Graham,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m trying to figure it out.”
This isn’t the first time we heard about Graham’s potential involvement. Back in January 2018, Sherman-Palladino revealed that the 52-year-old actress not only wants to be on the show, but she also “has it all figured out.”
How will Graham’s fast-talking ways impact Midge’s stand-up comedy career? Guess we’ll have to wait until season three of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel premieres on Amazon later this year.
