“Blessed be the squad”
Hulu released the highly-anticipated Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 trailer this week, and despite the ensuing wait, we’re already excited for the fight ahead.
The Handmaids Tale first aired in 2017 and is based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood. The series takes place in a dystopian United States in which fertile women are forced into slavery to bear children for childless government officials.
If you’re not up to date with the show then we recommend adding it to your current watchlist, and maybe skipping the new trailer until you’re up to date. This is a show you wouldn’t want to spoil.
See the new trailer here:
The third season certainly ramped up the tensions with Elisabeth Moss’ character, June, getting deeper into the Resistance. In a world where happy endings feel out of reach, our heroine continued her fight against the Gilead at yet more detriment to her own safety and ideals. In a tear-jerking climax, at least audiences could take pleasure in one thing; seeing the downfall of the Waterford’s.
What can we expect in season 4?
The action-packed trailer picks up with June and the ongoing revolution. Whilst she may have helped many children escape Gilead, her job isn’t done just yet. In a shot that is all too familiar to viewers, June is framed against a backdrop of angel wings; she’s the hope to sufferers of the regime. Working with her closest handmaids, it’s clear she has war on her mind and will be going full-throttle with a violent resistance.
Determined to save more women and likely destroy the Gilead, June’s ferocious voice-over leaves no room for regrets or doubt. “I can’t rest…we all deserve better…this war isn’t going to win itself”.
Elisabeth Moss will be returning to our screens with season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale in 2021.
