What’s This TV Show About?
A Hulu drama based on the Margaret Atwood novel, The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elizabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, and O-T Fagbenle, with Christopher Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser in guest starring roles this season. The dystopian tale tells the story of life under the totalitarian government of Gilead. The catastrophic state of the environment has devastated the birth rate, so fertile women are enslaved in the former US. The third season brings with it a new prayer: “Blessed by the fight.” It centers on June’s (Moss) resistance and her odds-defying fight to strike back, at a time when all must take a stand.
Unless they decide to publicize viewership statistics, it is difficult to predict whether Hulu will cancel or renew The Handmaid’s Tale for season four. The season two and season three renewals came within a couple of weeks of the first and second season premieres (respectively). If another renewal is coming, I expect to see it within a month or so. And flying blind, I do not expect this show to be cancelled or otherwise end without warning. This was arguably Hulu’s first really big original series. It has brought them much acclaim, so I think they would want to promote a final season as such. Since this is speculation, I’ll keep an eye on the trades and press releases and update this page with any developments.
