Production of the third season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is underway and filming is set to begin this week, cast and producers revealed over the weekend.

Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino appeared at a panel discussion on the show at the Paleyfest TV festival in Los Angeles. There, she revealed that the cast held its first table read for the show last week, and is set to begin shooting in New York on Wednesday.

Season 3 will be “a bigger show, because the story has to push out,” Sherman-Palladino said, according to Variety. The shows creator was joined at the panel by stars Rachel Brosnahan (Midge), Tony Shalhoub (Abe), Alex Borstein (Susie), Michael Zegen (Joel), Marin Hinkle (Rose), Kevin Pollak (Moishe) and Caroline Aaron (Shirley).

So what’s in store for the next season?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sherman-Palladino said she is still negotiating having Zachary Levi return for the third season as his character, Benjamin. At the close of the second season (spoiler alert), Benjamin proposes marriage to Midge, but the couple’s future is up in the air. And it seems a lot of it could depend on Levi’s shooting schedule on the upcoming superhero film Shazam!

As the show heads into the 1960s, the cast mused about what they’d like to see their characters do in the coming season. Borstein joked that Susie should have an affair with Elvis, and Shalhoub said Abe could experiment with psychedelic drugs, according to Deadline. Brosnahan said she’s eager to see how Midge approaches the feminist movement.

“I don’t think Midge is a feminist at this point,” Brosnahan said on the panel, according to Variety, while Sherman-Palladino clarified that the character might be one, but she “doesn’t think she is.”

After the second season took the Maisels to Paris and the Catskills, where could the family travel next?

Shalhoub said in an interview earlier this year that Miami was on the table, but the cast would not confirm any specifics this weekend.

“Her journey this year that we’ve set out for her is: it’s the first time she’s setting out as a road comic, it’s the first time she’s getting paid for this, it’s the first time she’s going to have consistency, and she’s dealing with audiences that aren’t her people,” Sherman-Palladino said, according to Variety. “That is going to bring its own story twist to it, we’re definitely going to some different places in Season 3.”
