The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel S5 Trailer: Fans Are Quick To Notice Lenny's Absence

Being a professional comedian sometimes isn't all laughs and giggles, and even when one makes an impact, it still isn't smooth sailing. The ending of Season 4 of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is far from easy for Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), who suffers some decidedly unfunny career speed bumps. Luckily, the legendary comedian Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby) provides aid, offering Midge stern advice and the reassuring admonishment for poor decisions.

The trailer for Season 5 picks up immediately after the events of the previous season, with Midge still focusing on an appearance on "The Gordon Ford Show," which she believes will act as a springboard to national spotlight. As the trailer progresses, Midge's manager Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) comments on how Midge will soon be a star, but her father, Abe Weissman(Tony Shalhoub), reminds her that anybody who achieved greatness has never been happy. Lenny is also absent from the trailer, which fans immediately took notice of, as is the case for @SnVanHoozer, who wrote on Twitter about the "concerning lack of Lenny."

Fans are worried about not seeing Lenny in the Season 5 trailer for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Several others were quick to share their thoughts, with @misloneliness tweeting about how Lenny Bruce is the other star but is not featured in the trailer.

"Where is Lenny?" @have1you_ever tweeted. "I think she'll be going back to Joel by the end." Many others, like @vanagouveia, @ehoneywe, and @midgexlennyx, also wondered where Lenny was during the trailer for Season 5 of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." @shawnastar252 echoed the above sentiments, emphasizing how much fans love Lenny. 

"Literally NO ONE wants him to go away," @shawnastar252 tweeted. "Where is Lenny?!" @Takemoto2331 took it a step further and said that Season 5 of the popular show absolutely needs Lenny in the mix somewhere, while @sweetdisastrr smashed on their caps lock to reiterate how badly fans want Lenny in Season 5. 


These collected comments highlight that many fans are feeling concern and apprehension at the lack of Lenny Bruce in the Season 5 trailer. Luckily, it seems as if Lenny will be returning to the final season of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." In other words, he is just absent from the trailer, and he will hopefully play a significant role in the upcoming season.
