How 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Blows Up Its World in Season 3

How 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Blows Up Its World in Season 3
The season two finale of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel laid the groundwork for a transformative third season, as Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) leaves her former life as a housewife behind once and for all, turning down a marriage proposal in favor of going on a nationwide tour with pop star Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain). As dramatic a decision as this is, it's not quite as shocking as Abe (Tony Shalhoub) abruptly quitting his tenured position at Columbia — and by extension, giving up the beautiful apartment that he and Rose (Marin Hinkle) have long called home.

How ‘Mrs. Fletcher’ Star Jen Richards Rewrote Trans Cliches for HBO

How ‘Mrs. Fletcher’ Star Jen Richards Rewrote Trans Cliches for HBO
Since breaking triumphantly onto the scene with her Emmy-nominated web series “Her Story,” writer and actress Jen Richards has quietly carved a niche as one of the most influential trans women working in Hollywood today. Not only did “Her Story” break ground as one of the first successful trans projects written by a trans creator, it centered not one but two trans women (Richards and Angelica Ross) in fully-realized narratives that did not show them experiencing pain or violence. The show also launched both women’s acting careers; Ross now stars on “Pose,” and Richards landed plum roles in ABC’s “Nashville,” NBC’s “Blindspot,” FX’s “Better Things,” and now — in her most substantial role yet — HBO’s brilliant sex comedy mini-series, “Mrs. Fletcher.”

Adapted from the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, who also created the series, “Mrs. Fletcher” boldly and hilariously charts the sexual awakening of a middle-aged mother named Eve Fletcher,
