The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Hulu drama The Handmaid’s Tale has been renewed for a third season – no doubt a gimme after doubling its audience in its second season.
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.
Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead will shape season two of The Handmaid’s Tale.
The Handmaid’s Tale returns – exclusively on Hulu – Wednesday, April 25th.
Hulu’s award-winning hit drama series, The Handmaid’s Tale, will return for season two on April 25th with two new episodes, and subsequent episodes released every Wednesday.
The 13-episode second season will be shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead.
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.
Alexis Bledel’s portray of Ofglen as a guest star in the first season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale has earned her a promotion to series regular for season two.
The 13-episode second season is scheduled to go back into production this fall and will premiere in 2018.
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.
Following it very successful premiere, Hulu has announced that there will be season two for The Handmaid’s Tale – the dystopian series based on the award-winning novel by Margaret Atwood.
The announcement came at today’s upfront.
Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.
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 a devastated world.
A new piece of key art for the series hints at the rebellion in Offred’s heart.
Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has been adapted for television by Bruce Miller – with Atwood as an executive producer on the limited series.
Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopic bestseller, The Handmaid’s Tale tells the story of Offred, one of the Handmaids chosen/forced to bear the children of the leaders of Gilead – a totalitarian society formed after America collapsed during a time of natural disasters and plunging birthrates.
A new trailer gives us a glimpse of the creation of Gilead and how Offred became a Handmaid.
The series premieres with three episodes on April 26th and new episodes streaming weekly.
Set in a dystopia called Gilead, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of Offred, one of the few fertile women left in the world following a series of environmental disasters.
These few women are now property – owned by the elite few – and forced into sexual servitude in an effort to repopulate the world.
A frenetic new teaser shows the world as it devolves into that dystopia.
Based on the bestselling novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale premieres on Hulu on April 26th.
