The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 given the green light by Hulu
Following its record-breaking season two premiere last week, Hulu has renewed the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series The Handmaid’s Tale for a third season.
Since its premiere in April 2017, The Handmaid’s Tale has gone on to become the first series ever on a streaming video on-demand service to take both the Golden Globe and Emmy Award for Best Drama Series. The Handmaid’s Tale is an eight-time Emmy Award-winning drama series and has garnered more than 30 prestigious awards to date, including a 2018 Peabody Award. The series has gone on to become the streaming service’s most-viewed series debut and it’s most critically successful to date.
The second season is 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 two, Offred and all our characters will fight against — or succumb to — this dark truth.
The series stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel. It is adapted from the award-winning, best-selling novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood.
The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Television and is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller. The show is executive produced by Warren Littlefield, Elisabeth Moss, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, and Ilene Chaiken. Margaret Atwood serves as a co-executive producer for season three of the series. MGM serves as the international distributor for the series.
The first two episodes of the second season were released Wednesday, April 25th. Subsequent episodes will be released every Wednesday only on Hulu.
