The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 4

It’s been two years since the last season of The Handmaid’s Tale, but the Hulu Original drama returns this month for yet another chapter of the heart-wrenching and award-winning saga. Last we saw protagonist June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss), she’d been shot and was being carried off to safety. Her tale continues, however, and so does the revolution she nurtured in the brutally oppressive, patriarchal nation of Gilead.
