The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized "return to traditional values". As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred 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 the world.
With her plan in place, June reaches the point of no return on her bold strike against Gilead and must decide how far she's willing to go. Serena Joy and Commander Waterford attempt to find their way forward in their new lives.
The Handmaid's Tale has revealed season 4's premiere date with an action-packed trailer. Having been delayed on multiple occasions by the ongoing pandemic, the hit Hulu series is now set to return to the streaming service on April 28. Similar to the previous season, the next run of episodes will return with three instalments at once. The remaining seven episodes will then drop on a weekly basis.
