To celebrate International Women’s Day in no uncertain terms, a new trailer for Hulu’s award-winning series The Handmaid’s Tale has arrived. Season 2 will arrive sooner than you know it, and the first two episodes will be available to stream on Wednesday, April 25th. The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth.
The series comes to Hulu from MGM Television and is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller and stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel. You can get caught up on Season 1 of The Handmaid’s Tale now on Hulu.
Check out the straightforward trailer for Season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale below:
We are in hell. But we are still the fury. Season 2 premieres April 25, only on Hulu.
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.
