AceShowbiz - "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is getting an early renewal. The acclaimed Amazon series has been picked up for a third season by the network ahead of its season 2 premiere.
It arrives after the series bagged a Peabody Award on Saturday night, May 19. "You're going to give it to us because we're bringing home the fancy thing, right?" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said of the Peabody win for the show's freshman season as cited by Variety.
Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, who attended the ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street, confirmed the news that the series was greenlit for a third season. While season 2 of "Mrs. Maisel" will have 18 episodes, the upcoming third season is allegedly to get 10 episodes.

It also got three nominations at the Critics' Choice Television Awards and won two of them including Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Brosnahan. The show is also among the prime contenders in the upcoming Emmy race.
