AMAZON Prime fans were distraught as a beloved comedy aired it’s last ever episode.
Over the years, The Marvellous Mrs Maisel has gained an almost cult-like following and achieved worldwide success.
But the comedy drama series has now come to an end after six years and its fans are gutted.
The show, which stars Rachel Brosnahan, 32, as the title character of Miriam ‘Midge Maisel, revolves around a female Jewish comic trying to make it in 1960’s New York.
Since the series made its debut in March 2017, The Marvellous Mrs Maisel has received critical acclaim and dozens of awards to boot.
Over six years, it’s received winning three Golden Globe Awards, five Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, six Critics Choice Awards and seven Primetime Emmy’s.
It also made household names out of the likes of Tony Shalhoub and Alex Borstein whilst established stars like Jane Lynch, Sterling K. Brown, Wanda Sykes and Academy Award nominated actress Stephanie Hsu were cast in significant roles.
Despite much success, in 2022 Amazon Prime announced that the show would not be renewed past the fifth season.
Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino previously told TVLine: “We don’t want to overstay our welcome. Midge has a journey she has to take.
“We know emotionally where we want to end her and at what point we want to cut it off.”
And as the last-ever episode was dropped on the streaming service, devoted fans took to social media as they paid tribute to the beloved series.
One fan exclaimed: “I just finished it and I cry because I too was happy and proud of Midge and seeing Lenny one last time was amazing thank you so much for this amazing show I’ll going to miss it terribly !!!”
A second fumed: “There is absolutely no reason to end this show. I rebuke this cancellation.”
Whilst a third concurred: “Wow. What a great ending. This show should not have been canceled. It deserves more. It’s just that good.”
“I have just finished watching the final episode, and I’m now very upset. This show has been brilliant! It’s up there with the all time TV greats. I’m gutted that there will be no more. I’ll watch it all again but not for a while. I need to process my grief,” tweeted a third.
Whilst a fourth emotionally said: “I rewatched from the beginning. Such a special show, I’m so sadddd!!!”
Meanwhile, a fifth fan noted: “Im not ready for this kind of emotional damage.”
More fans took to Twitter as they openly admitted that the finale episode had them in tears of joy, satisfaction and also sadness that the show is coming to an end.
One wrote: “Mrs Maisel finale has me finally understanding how avengers endgame was supposed to make me feel. sitting in my sofa and cheering and clapping and crying.”
Another commented: “Thank you for this finale that broke our hearts, but gave us a beautiful closer.”
A third wrote: “Up way past my bedtime crying over the Mrs. Maisel finale 😭.

Meanwhile a fifth added: “15 minutes into the Maisel finale and I’m already crying I’m not ready for this to be over.”
