The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 is a dystopian web series created by Bruce Miller, available on the streaming service Hulu. The series is based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name. The Handmaids Tale Season 4 has garnered quite a popularity and is said to be an engrossing adaptation of the novel, providing suspenseful moments every time. So it comes as no surprise that the show has been renewed for a fourth season. The creators announced this news via their social media channels.
So here’s everything you need to know about The Handmaid’s Tale season 4.
Release date of The Handmaids Tale Season 4
In September 2019, it was officially announced that Hulu and MGM were developing a sequel series. The fourth season was intended to release at some point in 2020. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, the production has been on a halt.
So with the global health crisis, the show will be unlikely to make it to the screens by the end of this year.
Elisabeth Moss has said that they will resume the productions as soon as it’s safe to do so. So we have to wait for quite a while to get a release date of season 4.
Cast of The Handmaids Tale Season 4
The Handmaids Tale Season 4 cast has not been officially confirmed yet. But it seems like the central cast members of the show will be back including Elisabeth Moss as June.
The creator of The Handmaids Tale, Bruce Miller has always said that the show will always stay June’s story, from her point of view.
Along with her, we can also expect to see Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, and Joseph Fiennes to reprise their role as Serena, Dr. Emily, and Commander Fred respectively.
The expected plot of The Handmaids Tale Season 4
The series part 4 is said to be based on Atwood’s 2019 novel ‘The Testaments’. The upcoming chapter will remain faithful to the original source material. The season will not go beyond the novel and will cover the territory that she covered quickly, at a slower pace.
The series part 4 is likely to pick up from the ending of the last episode on a cliffhanger, where June was swept away by her fellow handmaidens.
