The Handmaid’s Tale has some new company. Variety reports Sydney Sweeney will recur on season two of the Hulu TV show.
Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, the drama takes place in a dystopian society where women are considered property. The cast includes Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, and Jordana Blake.
From showrunner Bruce Miller:
In the first season we took things that were mentioned in the book and turned them into whole episodes. The second season, really a lot of the stuff we’re doing is still an extrapolation of that world — the colonies, what life is like for refugees and what happens if a handmaid tries to run away. All of those things from Margaret Atwood’s world are still very much a part of our world.”
