THE HANDMAID’S TALE saw the daughter of June, Hannah, moving deeper into Gilead to avoid contacting her again. If June had found Hannah, though, would she want to leave Gilead after all this time?
The Handmaid’s Tale continues to grow in viewership – it was announced last year that the two-premiere season attracted twice the number of season viewers an equivalent.
So it should come as no surprise that the show has been officially renewed for a fourth season.
The series takes place in a future nation called Gilead, where the autocratic government assigns strict social roles to women based on their wealth and fertility.
Even before the official confirmation of season four, Hulu chief executive Randy Freer appeared on the screen to be positive about The Handmaid’s Tale and its future.
Previous seasons followed a pretty standard release schedule – seasons one and two aired respectively in April (2017 and 2018), with three opting for a slightly later release (June 2019).
We do not have official confirmation yet, but the last seasons of the show revealed a gap of one year. Chief Editor Wendy Hallam-Martin announced that the show would not be released before March 2020.
Is season 4 the last season of the series?
We do not know to be truthful! The variety of the Plotline is infinite. So let’s cross our fingers and hope that everything goes well.
Realistically, The Handmaid’s Tale is likely to continue running as long as Hulu decides to keep paying for it.
In 2018 Hulu CEO Randy Freer told Variety that he aims for ten seasons as long as the show is good.
Who will return for season 4?
No official confirmation has yet been given. But we are sure Jund will be back.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Miller said that the story of June will always remain. The film is all from June-all of it, even scenes with other characters.
That means more of Elisabeth Moss as June/Offred, Alexis Bledel as Emily/Ofglen, Joseph Fiennes as Commander Fred, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy and list goes on.
What do we know about the plot for season 4?
Season 3 concluded with the successful evacuation of more than 50 children from Gilead and into safety in Canada by June.
In this process, she ends up shot in the leg, leaving paralyzed and stuck in Gilead.
But we’re sure to believe she’ll continue her journey, after all, the tale about The Handmaid revolves around her.
Season 4 is likely to see Moira and Luke struggle with discovering that June was the one preparing and carrying out the children’s escape.
