The Handmaid’s Tale is an American drama based on a book written by Margret Atwood. This show talks about a dystopia following a Second American Civil War wherein a totalitarian society subjects fertile women, called “Handmaids”, into child-bearing slavery. This show currently has 3 seasons. This show gained a lot of fans as the cliffhangers in this show leave the audience wanting for more.
Their franchise has decided to come back with season 4 and has been announced by the creators of the dystopian drama. However, what does the audience know about the new series? Here’s everything that has been revealed so far about the release date, cast, trailer, and plot of the show to clear more questions regarding the series. Season four is expected to return once again to Hulu with another dramatic outing of the dystopian drama later this year.
The new series will follow on from the cliffhanger of season three, which saw June Osborne who is one of the handmaids portrayed by Elisabeth Moss, free the children of Gilead. Ahead of the show’s return, here is everything that fans need to know about the upcoming series so far. There is no official news yet on when The Handmaid’s Tale season four will be released on Hulu. Some sources say that there will be an update as soon as any news is revealed about the release date.
The previous seasons of the show have been released once a year since 2017. If the fourth series follows the same pattern as previous seasons, viewers could see the show in 2020. However, one of the editors of the show, Wendy Hallam-Martin, revealed in Mayday: The Handmaid’s Tale Podcast that the series will not begin production until March. This could mean the series is delayed until later in 2020. To which many would not agree.
There has been no news yet about who will be returning for the fourth series of The Handmaid’s Tale. The majority of the leading cast is expected to return for another season. This is expected to include Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy and Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia. Other potential returning cast members include O.T. Fagbenle as Luke, Alexis Bledel as Emily and Joseph Fiennes as Commander Waterford.
