Hulu Releases Teaser For ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4
US streaming service Hulu has released a teaser trailer for ‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ Season 4, which lands April 28 in the USA, and (hopefully) will arrive here in the UK on Channel 4 not too long after…
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.
In the 10-episode upcoming season, June (Moss) strikes back against Gilead as a fierce rebel leader, but the risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges. Her quest for justice and revenge threatens to consume her and destroy her most cherished relationships.
Alongside Moss, the series sees Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle, Amanda Brugel, Bradley Whitford and Sam Jaeger reprising their roles.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ season four is executive produced by Bruce Miller, Warren Littlefield, Elisabeth Moss, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, Eric Tuchman, John Weber, Frank Siracusa, Sheila Hockin, Kira Snyder and Yahlin Chang.
One new addition for the 4th Season is Mckenna Grace (‘Haunting of Hill House’, ‘Fuller House’) who plays Mrs. Keyes, the sharply intelligent teenage wife of a much older Commander. She rules her farm and household with confidence. She has a rebellious, subversive streak, and is calm and pious on the outside with turmoil, even insanity, on the inside.
For those of you wondering why this isn’t coming to Star on Disney+, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is not made by Hulu, but an outside company, so it isn’t something that would automatically move across as Disney doesn’t own the rights outside of the USA. It also will be under a preexisting deal with Channel 4, who we assume (although not confirmed…) have picked up the new season. The drama has already been renewed for a 5th Season.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ Season 4 premieres Wednesday, April 28, 2021 on Hulu in the USA. Hopefully, it’ll show up on Channel 4 in the UK at some point not long after that, but we’ll have to wait and see…
