The Handmaid's Tale Season 4 Trailer Is Finally Here

The gods at Hulu have finally blessed us with the trailer for season four of The Handmaid's Tale and it looks unbelievable.

Loading…

The fourth instalment drops on the streaming service on April 28. Get ready to return to Gilead.

The teaser trailer has revealed Offred/June Osborne (Elizabeth Moss) is joining the resistance against the powers that control the US in the dystopian future and she's gearing up for one hell of a battle.

At the end of Season Three, we saw Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) arrested in Canada. Despite her helping June in the resistance in return for immunity, the immunity doesn't cover her forcing June to have sex with Nick in order for her to bear her a child of her own.

June was once again left behind in Gilead, but the teaser trailer shows a glimpse of Canada and the protagonist looks fully prepared to be there for the trial of the Waterfords.

While we don't know much else about the upcoming season, Maragret Atwood finished The Testaments two years ago, which is a follow up book set 15 years after The Handmaid's Tale; meaning the show creators at least have something to draw from and an aim of where the show should ideally end up.

We do know that Gilead still hasn't fallen in Margaret's book set 15 years later, but the resistance is much stronger and June is hiding out in Canada.

Plus, at the end of original fiction The Handmaid's Tale, there is an academic discussion that jumps 200 years forwards - so there's plenty for the writers to take inspiration from.

Bruce Miller said he wants the show to stay close to the source material, telling Hollywood Reporter: "People talk about how we're beyond the book, but we're not really.

"It's maybe handled in an outline, but it's still there in Margaret's novel. We're not going beyond the novel; we're just covering territory she covered quickly, a bit more slowly."

He also explained in the interview they'd previously hoped to delve more into Nick and his relationship with June but haven't managed yet due to time restrictions, so we imagine we'll delve further into this in Season 4.

But as to whether June will still want him since the revelations of his role in the uprising of Gilead, is another question entirely.
