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. The dystopian tale tells the story of life under the totalitarian government of Gilead, which was formerly part of the U.S. The catastrophic state of the environment has devastated the birth rate, so fertile women have become a commodity enslaved by the ruling class. The second season centers on Offred’s (Moss) pregnancy and her battle to ensure freedom for her future child. Gilead matron Aunt Lydia (Down) is fond of saying, “Gilead is within you.” Now it is up to Offred and the resistance to triumph over this evil regime, lest they succumb to it.
