We’re a while away from returning to Gilead, but Hulu has released a trailer giving us our first look at ‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ Season 4, which will premiere in 2021.
The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series stars Elisabeth Moss as a handmaid in Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birth rate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats fertile women as property of the state.
Season 3 saw Moss’ June – now newly named Ofjoseph due to her reassignment to Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford) – adjusting to her new position. Whilst Emily (Alexis Bledel) escaped with June’s baby into Canada, the resistance to the dystopian regime struggles to strike back against overwhelming odds. The Waterford’s (Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski) are determined to get “their” baby back and insist Ofjoseph help make contact. As the Season continued, startling reunions, betrayals, and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead forced all characters to take a stand. As June and her fellow handmaids attempted to rescue a bunch of Gilead children and get them out of the state, our heroine is shot by a solider. Last we saw of her, she was being carried away by the other handmaids.
As you can see in the trailer, it would appear June is very much alive, and the revolution is in full swing. Nowhere is safe. But then, change never comes easy… Blessed be the squad.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ Season 4 premieres at some point in 2021. As with every production, filming was halted in March due to the coronavirus, and we don’t know exactly when shows will get back to shooting, although production companies are currently trying to figure out the details. We’ll let you know when we have more exact information.
