Hulu has released a first-look photo of Alexis Bledel in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2. The show will return to the streaming service on April 25 with two episodes, with the rest of the 13-episode series being released each week. The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 will have three more episodes than Season 1. You can check out the full picture in the gallery below.

Alexis Bledel plays Emily, a college professor who was a mother married to another woman before the war, and has endured horrific punishment as Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) Handmaid companion Ofglen. Cynical and hell-bent on revenge, she still treats the victims of Gilead with tenderness and compassion.

The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season 2, Offred and all our characters will fight against — or succumb to — this dark truth.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel.

The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Television and is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller. Executive produced by Warren Littlefield, Elisabeth Moss, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, and Ilene Chaiken. MGM serves as the international distributor for the series.
