Watch The Chilling Teaser For ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2
The show returns April 25
While the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale was based on the book of the same title, the plot of Season 2 is a genuine mystery. Today, though, Hulu has provided us with some clues by way of a teaser trailer.
When we left off, Elisabeth Moss’ Offred was with child and her fellow handmaids were teaming up to rebel against the Republic. The trailer picks up from there, as Offred is heard listing off the rules they have been made to follow: "Wear the red dress, wear the wings, shut your mouth, be a good girl, roll over and spread your legs." They are in hell but they are still the fury, the trailer's description further outlines.
Will the ladies of Gilead be under his eye no longer? It’s hard to tell from the brief flashes. But we do see the commander’s wife slapping a woman (meaning, she’s still pretty evil), a man with a gun pointed at his head, and Offred standing in front of a noose. We also see that Alexis Bledel’s character will appear in the new season (likely in flashbacks, for the fate of her character was pretty much sealed… but also maybe not), as will Samira Wiley who, we know, has managed to escape to Canada.
The new season premieres April 25. Watch the teaser, below.
