Rachel Brosnahan, 31, is about to return as the stylish housewife-turned-stand-up-comedian in season four of Amazon Prime’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The last season left our heroine with no money, no job and at risk of losing her home, but fans of the show will tune in this weekend to see how Midge will bounce back.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” premiered in 2017 and was an immediate critical and commercial success.  The show went on to win many awards for creator Amy Sherman-Palladino of “Gilmore Girls” fame. Brosnahan herself won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and the Golden Globe in 2018 and 2019 for her stunning portrayal of Miriam “Midge” Maisel.

Brosnahan’s star-making turn in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” now pays her a hefty $300,000 per episode, bringing her estimated net worth to $15 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth. She received $100,000 per episode for her performances in the first and second seasons.

She first made a name for herself as a recurring character in the Netflix series “House of Cards.” She has also appeared in “Gossip Girl” and “Orange Is the New Black.”
