The Handmaid's Tale Season 4 Is Set To Be Released This Year
We won't forget how The Handmaid's Tale ended in the finale of Season 3 - June Osborne's life was hanging in the balance after she rescued the children from Gilead.
We've been on tenterhooks ever since and the wait could soon be over because the cast and crew are set to start filming Season 4 in March with a view to release the new series 'in the fall'.
The programme, which is based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel of the same name, will mainly be shot in Toronto, Canada.
During the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, The Handmaid's Tale executive producer Warren Littlefield said: "We'll start with principal photography 2nd March, and we'll be on in the fall."
Judging by this post on the City of Toronto website, film production will in fact kick off on the 2 March (just like Littlefield said) and it will wrap on the 7 August.

A total of 10 episodes are expected to be filmed by the company Gilead 4 Productions Inc.
To date, the popular series has been filmed almost exclusively in Ontario, in locations like Hamilton, Oshawa and Cinespace Film Studios in Toronto.
The full storyline of Atwood's original book - which follows the creation of a dystopian society where fertile women, dubbed 'handmaids', are forced into a slave trade to provide children - played out in the very first season.

The majority of the main cast is expected to return for another season, but with fans having no idea which way the action will go next, there's a lot of speculation riding on Season 4.
With production in the earliest stages, no official date has been announced for The Handmaid's Tale season four.
