The acclaimed Amazon Prime Video series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is back up shooting the fifth and final season in New York City.
And on Tuesday the show’s star, Rachel Brosnahan, was spotted shooting some streets scenes along the sidewalk and at a bus stop.
Later, the actress flashed big beaming smiles while in character as the perky Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel, as she sat out front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan.

Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Brosnahan, was the picture of retro fashion decked out in a striking red ensemble, consisting of a plaid skirt and cropped jacket.
Knowing that Mrs. Maisel has a keen eye for detail and color-coordinating her outfits, the costume department also included a pair of perfectly matched leather gloves and heels.
The accessories also included a red purse under her arm and a red hat over her dark brown tresses that were styled with plenty of soft curls, albeit 1960 retro.
Her overall look was rounded out with off-white stockings and of course, Mrs. Maisel’s trademark glowing and infectious smile.
