The Emmy-winning drama The Handmaid’s Tale 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.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale returns April 25th. Check out the show’s new key art poster below.
Shocking confession time: I didn’t watch the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards® last night – and apparently missed an historic evening.
Hulu became the first streaming service to win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series plus nine other awards including, among others, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series – finishing with ten on the night.
The nominees for the 2017 TCA (Television Critics Association) Awards have been announced and with Game of Thrones not eligible this year, some interesting things have happened in the Outstanding Achievement In Drama category – with Stranger Things and This Is Us receiving nominations (both also received nominations for Outstanding New Series).
On the comedy side, Atlanta and The Good Place also pulled off the double-double with nominations for Outstanding New Series and Outstanding Achievement In Comedy.
In terms of total noms, HBO led with an even dozen – but FX (11) and Netflix (10) kept it from being a walkover, and The Handmaid’s Tale got Hulu on the board with four.
