Creator and executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino had prodded executives Saturday night as she accepted a Peabody Award for her 1950s TV show about a New York City housewife who ventures into stand-up comedy after her marriage falls apart.
Maisel was initially ordered to a two-season, 18-episode deal. Season three is reported to likely have 10 episodes on its own. The show’s debut season premiered last November, and season two will premiere sometime in 2018.
