'The Handmaid's Tale' Returns: How Season 2 Taps Into the Resistance

'The Handmaid's Tale' Returns: How Season 2 Taps Into the Resistance
Deep in the heart of Gilead, a dystopian hellhole that used to be known as the United States of America, Elisabeth Moss offers a prayer. Like all the women in The Handmaid's Tale, her character, Offred, a prisoner and a slave. She remembers a few years ago, when she was a librarian in Boston with a husband and daughter, until the country got taken over by a militaristic and religious coup.

If You're Too Afraid to Ask What The Handmaid's Tale Is, Here You Go

With season two premiering in a matter of days, Hulu's adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale just keeps gaining momentum. If you missed the first season and you literally have no idea what the show is about, we can help.

Originally a 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, the story was equally popular when it was first published. The series follows the book's premise pretty closely in that it's set in a dystopian time when the American government has been overthrown and the country is now run by an order of totalitarian orthodox Christians who are fundamentalists. Under their dictatorship-style rule, basic human rights for women have almost become extinct.

The human fertility rates have suffered due to environmental factors, and the population is dwindling. It is in this society that we are introduced to the protagonist Offred who is a "handmaid" to Fred, or "The Commander." Offred is expertly played by Elisabeth Moss,

Key Art Revealed For Upcoming ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Season Two

Hulu has revealed the first piece of key art for the highly anticipated second season of their incredible drama series The Handmaid’s Tale. The first two episodes of the 13-episode season will launch on Wednesday, April 25th.

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 Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth.

The Handmaid’s Tale was without a doubt one of the very best series to date and we are absolutely on the edge of our seats in anticipation for what will be in store for season two!
