5. What is season four about?
The streaming platform dropped the season’s first trailer over the summer, and according to June Osborn (Moss) the battle in Gilead is “just getting started.” The teaser, which features both old and never-before-seen footage, picks up where season three left off, when the former handmaid led a rebellion to rescue the children of Gilead. (If you remember, the finale ended with June being carried away by her fellow handmaids after she had been shot).
And it seems like there are going to be a lot of twists this time around. “You don’t want to be setting up season 4 in season 3. Audiences smell that coming,” showrunner Bruce Miller previously said to EW. “So what I do is completely screw myself at the end of the season. Then you think, 'Oh, there’s a whole bunch of smart writers who will come in next season and solve that problem.'”
6. What are other shows like The Handmaid’s Tale?
It’s clear we’ve got some time before the new season starts streaming. So, in the meantime, we recommend binging a few other series with similar themes (or that star Moss), including Black Mirror, the Leftovers, the Man in the High Castle, Mad Men, Dead to Me and The OA.
