What is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel age rating?

The Marvelous. Mrs Maisel is one of Amazon’s biggest shows. You want to get caught up before Season 4 premieres, but can you do it with the kids around? It’s time to find out The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel age rating.

Unlike movies, TV shows can have different ratings for each episode. This is purely based on the language used and the sexual scenes included.

Overall, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel age rating is set as TV-MA in the United States. This means it’s not for audiences under 18.

However, this is just in the U.S. In the UK, the age rating is set at 15. In Australia, it’s MA15+. Canada sets it at 16+. Then there are many other countries that set it at 18+.

It’s all going to come down to the maturity of your children. This is where you as a parent will need to watch an episode or two and make a judgment call.

Why is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel age rating MA-TV?

Sometimes, you just need to understand why it’s set the way it is. It mostly comes down to the language and nudity on the series. There is some smoking on the show, which is another reason for the rating, but this is set in the 1950s. A lot of people smoked back then, even when pregnant!

The language is the biggest issue. The F-bomb is dropped a lot, even from the first episode. This is going to be a turn-off for some.

The C-word isn’t used that much. The overall language isn’t as bad as on The Boys or even Utopia.

There is some nudity on screen. It’s worth pointing out that as it’s set in the 1950s, there is a little less skin than you’d see in a show like this now. Midge is arrested for her style of comedy in the very first episode.

I do think it’s worth watching an episode or two yourself and deciding if this is right for your children.
