Elisabeth Moss Says June Becomes Ruthless in Season 3 of “Handmaid’s Tale”
If you’re still rooting for June Osborne, consider today a blessed day.
Hulu revealed on Thursday, Dec. 10 that The Handmaid’s Tale has actually formally been renewed for season five. Starring Elisabeth Moss and based on the novel of the exact same name by Margaret Atwood, the story will continue to follow the totalitarian nation of Gilead, where females are removed of their human rights and handmaids like June often try to get away to Canada. Was it just us, or was real life starting to feel like an episode of the Emmy-winning drama at one point this year? Hm.
To share the news, Moss joined her castmates for a video in which they shared that season 4 has also officially went back to production. The clip finds Moss together with Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski, Joseph Fiennes, Madeline Maker, Max Minghella, Amanda Brugel, Bradley Whitford, O.T. Fagbenle and Ann Dowd, who stated, “All I can state is hold on to your seats.” Moss included, “It’s my opportunity and honor to tell this story.”
The fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale is set to premiere in 2021 and will include 10 episodes. “We’re really grateful to Hulu and MGM that the program will be returning for a fifth season, and specifically to our devoted fans for their support,” Bruce Miller, developer and showrunner, told The Hollywood Press Reporter. “We are enjoyed be able to continue to tell these stories, with our amazing cast and crew, and can’t wait to be back on the air with season 4 next year.”
