Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale ends on a major cliffhanger: Offred heads willingly into a black police van, uncertain of her fate. She will either be arrested for treason, or smuggled to safety. The Hulu series may have ended its first season the same way, but since we're headed into season two, we know there's more story to tell. We're still being kept in the dark about the conclusion of season one's cliffhanger, but the actors may have spilled the beans about where Offred (Elisabeth Moss) will end up.
So far, what we've seen of The Handmaid's Tale season two has encompassed grim photos that included a bloodied June/Offred (Elisabeth Moss), as well as yesterday's eerie trailer. But according to showrunner Bruce Miller, the tone of season two won't be drastically different from what worked so well in season one.
Do the new US McDonald's uniforms remind you of anything? If you answered "every dystopian sci-fi movie ever," you're correct. To me, they invoke a very Logan's Run future. But mandatory grey-on-grey with a dash of black is pretty much universally recognised as the standard uniform for bleakest of futures.
The new audiobook for The Handmaid's Tale is now on Audible, which includes a radio drama styled as a Q&A that answers a few lingering questions about the book and its characters. However, it mostly left us with a big question of our own: Is Margaret Atwood setting up a sequel to The Handmaid's Tale?
John Boyega suits up for Pacific Rim: Uprising. The Flash teases a big return to Gorilla City and a major new villain. Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale adaptation will do away with a major aspect of the original novel. Plus, there's a ton of new footage from The LEGO Batman Movie, and The Predator adds another cast member. Behold, spoilers!
Hulu's 10-episode adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is coming in April 2017, and the network just released some lovely first-look images. Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, a woman trapped in Gilead, a newly-formed dystopian society that only values her ability to aid repopulation efforts.
