After a brief appearance in Season 4, The envelope reports that the actor is back on board as a guest star, with production underway in New York.

With plenty of mystery surrounding the character, hopefully the fifth and final season of the comedy-drama can shed some light on Handsome Man’s background.

Discussing the casting of Ventimiglia last year, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said: “It’s actually a very different thing we’re doing with him. We needed someone of his caliber and his good looks, so we asked Milo to do it. “

Sherman-Palladino was also very grateful for Prime Video’s decision to allow the team to wrap up Midge’s story with another season.

“We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we don’t have to pack our bags and leave the premises,” read his and Daniel Palladino’s renewal statement.
