    Part of that was because Lena Heady was pregnant when that scene was filmed.
    "Nudity" with something strategically placed or covered by sheets is not nudity at all. If you're going to point out instances where nudity is implied but covered, then we may as well start citing every single show ever made.

    I don't recall any nudity in Mrs. Maisel's two seasons. But I don't need that to get me to watch. I grew up in New York in the 60's and this show has so many characters that are like so many people I grew up with it's like a trip down memory lane for me.

    Yep, that was the draw for me. I knew a lot of people like in the series, though we were in a bit lower tax bracket than the main characters. The summer they did in the Catskills brought back so many memories.

    Pilot episode, at the very end when she does her first standup routine. She gets arrested for it.

    Don't get me wrong, there’s a lot of attraction for lots of people due to the nostalgia and that era, and that area.

    And they could’ve just have easily done that scene with implied nudity, without actually showing the TV audience. That decision, in my mind, was intentional to attract a male audience.

    There have been three seasons of Maisel. And as Squeak said, she showed her boobs in the pilot episode.

    And I think that is where the "t*ts up" catch phrase that her and her manager share before she goes on stage comes from.

    That's a pretty common exhortation for female performers about to go on stage.

    As a contrary, adding nudity to an established series, Ellis' backside has gotten lots of airtime on "Lucifer" on the move to Netflix.
