The award-winning series of Hulu, The Handmaid’s Tale has successfully managed to capture the attention of people and is back for Season 4. In the last season of the series, it was seen that the seeds of a rebellion began to be planted by June/Offred and other handmaids of Gilead to topple the Christian theocracy that has for years kept them down. Let’s know in detail all about the season 4 and any news about season 5.
The Handmaid Tale was originally released on April 26, 2017, on Hulu. Until now it has released three seasons with 36 episodes. The series was renewed for a fourth season in July 2019. There is no specific release date set by Hulu for the premiere of the third season but is expected to release by 2021. Season 4 will consist of ten episodes and production began from March 2020. However, production stopped due to Coronavirus Pandemic.
There are only a brief teaser and no trailer released for the series yet. The cast members included in it are Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, O-T Fagbenle, Bradley Whitford, Clea Duvall, and Amanda Brugel. There are no updates regarding the inclusion of new characters in the upcoming season.
It has not been yet confirmed by Hulu about the future of the series. The show can be hopefully continued as it seems from executive producer Warren Littlefield. It has also not been announced that season 4 is going to be the last one in the series.
Littlefield said, “We have not planned Season 4 to be the end, but we also look to Margaret [Atwood]’s book The Testaments and know that that story takes us 15 years into the future. We don’t see ending it in [Season 4], and I can honestly say to you, we don’t have a definitive out. But I think we want to keep the bar high, and it would not be a bad thing to leave the audience wanting more, and then we could ideally shift into The Testaments.”
