It is one of the most talked about TV shows of our time, not least because the dystopian land of Gilead is spookily becoming our reality, but because it’s airing at a time when women are rallying worldwide for gender equality.
The third series may still be rolling but Hulu has confirmed The Handmaid’s Tale will be returning for a fourth season. Blessed be the fruit!
Here’s everything you can expect from the fourth season…
When will the fourth season be released?
While a release date is yet to be confirmed, Hulu confirmed a fourth instalment of The Handmaid’s Tale is in the works on the 8th August. The show’s official Twitter account stated: “You did this, Resistors. Praise be. ? Season 4 of The #HandmaidsTale is happening!”
Given that season three is still on air, and filming for the fourth season is yet to commence, it could be a while before it lands on our screens but if the release date follows the same pattern as previous seasons, it will land in April. Only eight months to go!
What will happen?
The first season closely followed the storylines of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 classic novel but all subsequent seasons have been created by the show’s directors.
As for season four, it will all depend on how season three ends. Will Offred actually ever escape? Who even knows!
Who will be starring in season 4?
It’s difficult to know who will survive this season but we can only assume Elisabeth Moss will be returning as the lead role and executive producer – praise be!
We’re also gunning for the return of our July digital issue cover star Yvonne Strahovski, who plays Mrs Waterford. “It’s always been incredible how moved people are by it. I mean, moved emotionally and moved in a disgusted way – and everything in between! It really does speak to people on so many different levels. Only a few TV shows that can say that they do that,” she told us last month.
Bring. It. On.
The Bachelorette’s Hannah Brown Wants Tyler to Be “Part of Her Life,” and Honestly, Same
After that left viewers wholeheartedly shook, The Bachelorette‘s Hannah Brown jetted off to New York City to rehash all the drama on Good Morning America. The 24-year-old Alabama native sat down with host Michael Strahan Wednesday morning to spill the juicy details on her decision to break things off with Jed “I’m Really Proud of My Dog Food Jingle” Wyatt, why she’s still excited about her future, and perhaps mostly importantly, where things stand with Tyler Cameron.
Although Hannah admitted that was “a whole different level of betrayal,” she explained that she doesn’t regret the choices she made during her season of the ABC dating show. “I could ‘What if?’ and wonder what would happen if I made different choices, but ultimately. .. I found that fierce love and it’s for me, and I think that’s worth it all,” she told Strahan. We stan a self-loving queen!
Hannah went on to coyly address her possible future with Tyler after she boldly asked him on a date when they reunited during the live finale. “Those feelings were real when we were together, and you don’t just turn off emotions,” Hannah said. “He’s always been supportive and respectful and has continued to do so. I want him to be a part of my life in some way, so I wanna be able to hang out. .. no pressure, just. .. hang out.” I don’t know about you, Bachelor Nation, but it certainly sounds like these two have some unfinished business to tend to!
Ahead, watch all the videos from Hannah’s Good Morning America appearance to see what else she had to say about her journey to find love – and to see her compete against fellow former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay in a fun game on set!
