Rachel Brosnahan parodied her character from Amazon's 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" on the Jan. 19 episode of "Saturday Night Live."

Fans of Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" just got a sneak peek at season three on "Saturday Night Live." 

Well, not really. 

Star of the streaming service hit, Rachel Brosnahan, parodied her character during the show's first episode back since 2018.

The clip starts with a familiar scene at the Gaslight Cafe, a bar where Mrs. Maisel routinely performs her comedy sets in the show. 

"Of course we're downtown now, so if you have underwear on you're overdressed," her character opens. 

But then after the set, Mrs. Maisel meets a Gaslight Cafe employee (Leslie Jones) inspired that a woman is on stage doing standup — somewhat of a common thread throughout the actual "Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." Somehow Jones ends up on stage, with Maisel's advice to just "Say what's on your mind." 

And thus, "The Raunchiest Miss Rita" is born.
