Hulu has released a new promo spot and poster for the upcoming second season of their Emmy Award-winning drama, The Handmaid's Tale. This is a powerful series that's set in a dark and unsettling future. I'm fascinated by the story that this series is telling and I'm looking forward to seeing where Season 2 ends up taking these characters.
The second season will be 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 is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood and developed as series by producer and writer Bruce Miller. Elizabeth Moss stars in the drama alongside Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel. It was also announced that Marisa Tomei would be making an appearance this season!
The first two episodes of the second season will stream on Wednesday, April 25th. Subsequent episodes will be released every Wednesday only on Hulu.
