It took everyone a while to recuperate from that Season 4 ending of The Handmaid’s Tale last year. Now, after months of catching our breath, attention has actually firmly been drawn away to Season 5, particularly as now we have a brand new trailer to obsess over.
We have SO several inquiries— perhaps even more now that we’ve seen a taster of what’s to come. As followers will understand, a great deal occurred in period 4, consisting of the arrival of new teenager handmaid Esther Keyes played by McKenna Grace and also the brutal killing of Commander Fred Waterford by OG June (Elisabeth Moss).

What have we gained from the trailer? It’s A LOT to unpack. We see June respond to her homicidal act at the end of the previous season, and Serena’s angry, grief-driven reactions. There is 100% mosting likely to be a showdown in between the two ladies, as well as we can not wait. When June talks regarding the reality that she eliminated Fred, we see her admit proudly:» I eliminated him, and also I liked it so much».
