The Handmaid's Tale Trailer Shows A World Where Fear Breeds Contempt

Video: The first full trailer for The Handmaid's Tale is here, and there's no doubt it's going to be one of the most impactful shows of 2017.

The trailer takes us fully into the world of Offred, a woman whose rights were stripped away, turning her into a breeder for wealthy couples. The show presents a world that's not unlike ours, showing how easily we could fall into the abyss ourselves through compliance and tolerating intolerance. It's no wonder women are dressing up as these characters at the Texas legislature meetings regarding allowing doctors lie to female patients about fetal defects. We're one red hood away from the point of no return.

The Handmaid's Tale debuts April 26 on Hulu. An Australian broadcaster has not yet been announced.
