The Handmaid’s Tale is fresh off an incredible awards season, with both the show and its lead actress Elisabeth Moss nabbing Emmys and Golden Globes in major dramatic categories. Now, Hulu has finally revealed the release date for season two, and with it comes a new trailer that will leave you both shook and excited.
The Handmaid’s Tale season two will premiere on Hulu on Wednesday, April 25. The first two episodes of the season will be available to start, with new episodes debuting each Wednesday after that.
As promised when the show was renewed shortly after it premiered, season two charts new territory that expands on the original novel and first season’s story, all while maintaining author Margaret Atwood’s vision.
The trailer shares some ominous glimpses of what’s to come. We see June/Offred (Moss) wearing a muzzle, Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) holding a gun and approaching a man who is gagged, as well as Moira (Samira Wiley) and Luke (OT Fagbenle) starting over at a refugee camp in Canada. The second season will largely focus on Offred and her newly revealed pregnancy.
The trailer is set to a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s iconic protest song “For What It’s Worth,” performed beautifully by Malia J. Check out the full trailer below, and watch The Handmaid’s Tale starting on April 25 on Hulu.
