The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 – Hulu / Channel 4 – No premiere date yet (but likely to be Spring 2019)
Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
Hanna, Season 1 – Amazon Prime – Episode 1 Available now, full season coming March 2019
Equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, ‘Hanna’ follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl (Esme Creed-Miles) raised in the forest, as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent (Mireille Enos – ‘The Killing’) and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is. The series is based on David Farr’s 2011 movie of the same name. Joel Kinnaman (‘House Of Cards’, ‘Altered Carbon’, ‘The Killing’) stars as Erik, Hanna’s father. He’s a hardened, intuitive and uncompromising soldier and mercenary, who, for the past 15 years, has raised his daughter in the remote forests of northern Poland. Isolated from the world he once knew, he has trained Hanna in every method of survival, with his only goal, to keep her safe. But, his teenage daughter begins to seek freedom from the restricted haven he has created.
