An American dystopian drama series The Handmaid’s Tale is coming for its fourth season.
It is based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood (Canadian author). The series was ordered by the streaming service Hulu and created by Bruce Miller.
The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 starts filming on March 2. So, we can expect that it will release in August.
Season 4 will consist of ten episodes. Bruce Miller, The Handmaid’s Tale showrunner said “Some storylines seem to shake out as a 10-episode story, in my eyes. It gives us a little more freedom because you can rely more on one propulsive element.”
There is no official date yet announced about the release of The Handmaid’s Tale season four.
Warren Littlefield, the executive producer, said, “We will start with principal photography March 2, and we’ll be on in the fall.”
It seems that the second series of the show will not be released until autumn 2020.
There has been not announced yet about who will be returning for the fourth series of The Handmaid’s Tale. But the majority of the main cast is expected to return for the second season. Including:
- Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne (a woman who was captured while attempting to escape to Canada with her husband, Luke, and daughter, Hannah).
