Grim First Trailer For Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 and Premiere Date Announced

Fresh off of its win for Best Drama at the Golden Globes, Hulu recently announced that The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 will premiere on April 25th. They also released the first trailer for the upcoming 13-episode second season that you can watch below.

If you haven't watched the first season yet, it's definitely worth checking out. It's a great and intense series that tells a fascinating story. This trailer gives us a little glimpse of what we can expect to see from the new season. One of the things we know that it will focus on is Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) pregnancy and her continuing fight to help her future child escape the dystopian horrors of Gilead.

When talking about Season 2 with Variety, Moss explained that it's going to be much darker than Season 1, saying:

"So much of the season is about motherhood. It's a bit of a ticking time bomb.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Trailer: The Fight for Freedom Continues in Emmy-Winning Drama — Watch

It terrified us with its bleak vision of what America could become in Season 1 — and swept the Emmys and Golden Globes in the process. Now, Hulu’s searing adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s iconic dystopian novel is on the verge of continuing the story beyond the original ending of the book, to the toughest reaches of this brutal world.

Season 2, premiering this April, brings with it the return of Offred (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss) and (per the official Hulu summary) “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.”

While we already know the second season of The Handmaid's Tale TV show is coming to Hulu in April, we don't yet have a specific release date. Still, the streaming service has released some "first-look" season two photos, to tide us over and give us a sneak peek at Offred and crew. Check them out, below. A TV series adaption of the Margaret Atwood novel, The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-t Fagbenle, Amanda Brugel, and Alexis Bledel. The Hulu TV show tells the story of life under the totalitarian regime governing Gilead. With the birthrate plummeting, the fundamentalist government treats fertile women as chattel. The first season ended with Offred (Moss) seemingly arrested and removed from the home where she served as a reproduction slave. Read

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2: First Look!

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 debuts this April, and Hulu has dropped a string of new images from the award-winning series.

Praised be!

The first of which shows Offred with blood all over her, but it does not offer a glimpse into what happened to her after the events of The Handmaid's Tale Season 1.

As you will likely recall, a pregnant Offred was taken away from the Waterford house. On her way out the door, she was told by Nick that everything would be okay.

On a show that's filled with dread, it would be fair to assume that her ordeal was far from over. We've been waiting in suspense for months now.

Sundance: Exclusive Look at Andrea Riseborough’s Psychodrama ‘Nancy’

Sundance: Exclusive Look at Andrea Riseborough’s Psychodrama ‘Nancy’
Nancy,” a psychodrama about a woman with a tenuous grip on the line separating fact from fiction, seems to speak to our “fake news” era. The film premieres at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 20 and features Andrea Riseborough as the title character, a 35-year-old woman who spins elaborate hoaxes on the internet.

“Reality caught up with my fiction,” said Christina Choe, the film’s writer and director. The film was in production when Donald Trump was inaugurated and the script was written long before his election, but Choe sees parallels between the president’s fib-telling and her central character’s penchant for stretching the truth.

“It’s become a timely topic because of our lovely president, the liar-in-chief,” she said. “It’s a strange time as a society when the nature of truth is under attack.”

“Nancy”s’ plot kicks into gear when the title character becomes convinced she was kidnapped as a child and goes

Golden Globes 2018: Three Billboards take home four while Big Little Lies dominates the TV categories

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

The awards season kicked off last night at the lavish Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 75th Golden Globes ceremony. Politically charged and dominated by last year’s sexual harassment allegations, the women of the big and small screen came out in solidarity with each other by wearing black and Time’s Up pins. Nevertheless, it was Cecil B. De Mille recipient, Oprah Winfrey that stole the show with her presidential style speech in which she stated: “I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon.”

As for the awards themselves, on the film front, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri won four awards. Guillermo del Toro won best director for The Shape of Water, the film had the most nominations of the night.
