> Everything you Need to Know About Hulu’s Fifth Season of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

Time flies- wasn’t just the other day fans couldn’t keep calm when the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale premiered? 

The series has managed four incredible seasons in nearly five years, with the fifth around the corner. The Handmaid’s Tale is a modification of Margaret Atwood’s book of the same title, originally published in 1985 (hardcover).

Atwood project has garnered a whopping 4.1/5-star rating on Goodreads and a 3.1/5-star rating on Thriftbooks; no wonder it was modified into a TV show.

About ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

The series centers on June, one of the countable fruitful ladies, who is forced to adhere to her Gileadan officer’s harsh rules while living as a surrogate to him and his wife. June lives in high hopes of reconnecting with her beloved daughter someday. 

The previous season, which launched in June 2021, followed June’s strike back against Gilead as she maneuvers riskier, unanticipated, and dangerous challenges. Her thirst for justice, freedom, and revenge threatens not only her life but also the lives of her dear ones. 

The upcoming season will resume where its predecessor left off, showcasing June’s outcomes for murdering Cmdr. Waterford as she battles to uncover herself once more. While Cmdr Lawrence cooperates with Aunt Lydia to rise in authority, the unshakable triad, Moira, Luke, and June, fights Gilead to save and reconnect with June’s daughter.


The 2-minute, 16-second trailer from Hulu’s primary YouTube Channel displays June as she laments about Gilead and her plans to revenge for her country. It then proceeds to her confession about killing Cmdr Waterford and how she wants to discover herself again. 

The trailer finalizes with Cmdr Lawrence and Aunt Lydia’s conversation about how dangerous June is to their plans and a return to Gilead in search of Hannah. Every line they cross brings them closer to the edge.
