If you were wondering how Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino would tackle her Amazon original series beyond the pilot episode, you now have a good idea. Amazon has posted the first trailer for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and you can tell that Sherman-Palladino is taking advantage of the creative freedom that comes with an internet-only show. Where Gilmore Girls was best described as quirky, Mrs. Maisel is gritty and raunchy. Its namesake '50s comedienne doesn't shy away from exploring sex and swearing at a time when the media pretended they didn't exist.

The show premieres as a Prime Video exclusive on November 29th. And remember, Amazon has already committed to offering a second season -- you won't be left wondering about the show's fate like you often do with streaming-only productions. That's a reflection of Amazon's confidence in the show, of course, but it also indicates Amazon's determination to counter Netflix's Gilmore Girls revival. It doesn't want Netflix to have a well-known figure like Sherman-Palladino all to itself, and guaranteeing a second season is an obvious way to do that.
