It's a moment nine months in the making - although, in another way, it's been in the works a lot longer than that. The most recent episode of The Handmaid's Tale isn't just a gorgeous hour of television, it's done something few other shows or films ever have: It gave us the miracle of life, in all its pain and beauty. It's an episode everyone should witness.

Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale was published back in 1985, but the Hulu adaptation of its grim, deeply emotional story of female oppression was one of 2017's best, most gripping (and unfortunately most timely) TV shows, and that's sure to be the case again this year with season two. Here's how to catch up on - or remember - the events of season one, where the characters were left, and generally just how insanely awful the world of Gilead is for women.

Today Hulu announced that its 10-episode adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian The Handmaid's Tale will premiere in the US 26 April 2017. It also released an array of character images, including this pensive shot of star Elisabeth Moss, along with several faces that didn't appear in the first-look photos, such as Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black) as Moira, an ally to Moss' Offred.
