U.S. based TV network Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale starring Alexis Bledel and Elisabeth Moss has officially been confirmed for the fourth season.
After a breath-taking (literally!) cliff-hanger ending of the third season, the fans are already restless to know what the characters have in store for them.
When Will The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Be Released?
We don’t have an exact date yet.
However, we know that the show was renewed in July 2019 for its fourth season.
The first season of The Handmaiden’s Tale made its debut on 26th April 2017. The second season rolled out in April 2018, and the third installment released in June 2019.
Filming has officially begun for the fourth season, and judging by the release pattern of the last three seasons; it is most likely that the fourth season will be released around mid-2020.
What Is The Handmaid’s Tale About And What Could Happen In Season Four?
Adapted from the Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, the series displays the dystopian United States and revolves around Gilead- a totalitarian society where fertility rates have plunged, and fertile women are forced to become “handmaids” and bear children for the leaders of Gilead.
The Season Three Finale showed Jane (Elisabeth Moss) helping a group of children escapes Gilead by plane. But she had to be carried away after being seriously wounded at the end of the episode.
It is highly likely that Season Four will continue to follow the rising resistance in Gilead.
Who Can We Expect To See In The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Cast?
Though there is no information about who will return from the original cast, it seems likely that we will see central cast members, including Alexis Bledel, Yvonne Strahovski, and Joseph Fiennes, reprise their roles. We might also see June (Elisabeth Moss) return.
