Video: We may not know what’s in store for Offred, but it’s clear she and the other handmaids are ready for revolution in the second season of The Handmaid’s Tale.

Hulu has released a new teaser for season two of The Handmaid’s Tale, not-so-coincidentally on International Women’s Day. At the end of last season, Offred had been taken away by still-unknown forces. She may be facing the gallows, or headed to see the Mayday resistance group. But either way, we know she isn’t going down without a fight – especially given how the teaser’s full of slowly burning red cloaks. This girl is on fire, indeed.
The trailer also gives us a hint at the fates of some of the other characters – notably Janine, who looks to be doing manual labour in the Colonies, which we’ll be visiting next season. And fan-favourite Ofglen/Emily is seen in a flashback, which means we’ll be getting a look at her story before the rise of Gilead. The Handmaid’s Tale returns to SBS On Demand April 26. Under Her Eye.
