‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 3 Details
Andrew Parker - May 28, 2019

The Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale is coming back soon for its third season. Praise be!

 

Warning: spoilers ahead.

 

A quick recap of what happened in season two of The Handmaid’s Tale, the season finale left us with a major cliffhanger. Elizabeth Moss’s character June/Offred had a chance at freedom but chose to stay in Gilead to rescue her daughter, Hannah. It was a shocking moment in the show, to say the least, and now the real battle with the regime’s higher-up’s is about to begin.

 

The first full-length trailer was released and it’s amazing. We hear June’s voice saying, “Heresy. That’s what you get punished for, not for being part of the resistance. Not for helping people escape, because officially, there’s no such thing as escape.” From the looks of the trailer, Mrs. Waterford, Nick, and Bradley Whitford’s Commander Lawrence will be the among her allies this upcoming season. We will also see Alexi Bledel’s character Emily escape out of Gilead with June’s baby. Intense.

 

 

Here are the details to know about The Handmaid’s Tale season 3.

 

The release date: Wednesday, June 5th.

 

June’s fight against Gilead’s regime is a central plot line. Showrunner Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter, “She’s ready to rise up, and ready to take some chances and use all the skills she’s learned over the last three years.” Elizabeth Moss told EW in an interview, “You have to fight fire with fire. That’s become [June’s] journey in season 3. To fight against the people she has to fight, she has to become like them.”

 

Emily and baby Nicole’s escape from Gilead. Miller told CNN, “There’s a lot of people who want her, including the whole country of Gilead- if she happens to get out. She’s the next generation that they’re all doing all of this for.”

 

Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) is alive. Producer Warren Littlefield said Emily’s knife attack incident “transformed” her.
