the handmaid's tale season 4 teaser

“Change never comes easy,” June muses in The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 teaser, which feels like a bit of an understatement for the bleak, slow-moving dystopian Hulu series based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. But the plodding drama series promises the long-awaited revolution against the totalitarian regime of Gilead, though we will still have to wait until next year to see it play out. Watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 teaser below.

The Testaments Series

The Handmaid’s Tale producer Warren Littlefield was at the Television Critics Association winter press tour for a Fargo season four panel. As Hulu and MGM recently acquired the rights to adapt author Margaret Atwood’s recently published sequel The Testaments, we asked Littlefield if the two shows could run concurrently on Hulu, but it sounds like the sequel will actually follow the end of the other.

The Handmaid's Tale sequel hulu

Last year, award-winning author Margaret Atwood announced that she was writing a sequel to her acclaimed novel The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s called The Testaments, and it’s also set in the oppressive religious community of Gilead but told from the perspectives of several characters instead of being in the head of the first book’s protagonist, June (aka Offred). The Testaments hits bookshelves next week, and today multiple reports have confirmed that Hulu and MGM, the companies behind the Emmy-winning TV version of The Handmaid’s Tale, are also developing the sequel for Hulu – though it’s still unclear whether this will be worked into the existing show, or if it will be a separate show altogether.

The Handmaid's Tale Sacrifice Review

“Sacrifice”, the twelfth episode of The Handmaid’s Tale season 3, steadies the viewer into absorbing a shock that contrives character conflict for June (Elisabeth Moss) while devaluing another character under the guise of something nebulously “thematic.”

The previous episode of the Handmaid’s Tale threw two gamechangers: the arrest of the Waterfords (Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski) across the Canadian border and the death of High Commander Winslow. The first feels like a thematic outcome, even if the character turns felt hazy, of Serena Joy’s myopic motherhood agenda. The second, cathartic as it is for June to bludgeon a rapist dictator, does feel resulted from wild card happenstance on the writers’ part (and a waste of Christopher Meloni).

The Handmaid's Tale Liars Review

The Handmaid’s Tale is rolling the dice toward its finale with one of its uneven, but serviceably suspenseful, episodes. “Liars” runs too fast, stops, then pants, then runs too fast toward the horizon. This episode both accelerates and coasts toward its season finale with “what comes around, goes around” vibes.

June (Elisabeth Moss) must transport 52 children to the safety of Canada, but it will take more than trucks to smuggle children out of Gilead. Meanwhile, the Waterfords (Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski) take matters into their own hands to retrieve baby Nichole from Canada.

The Handmaid's Tale Witness Review

The Handmaid’s Tale has been teasing revolution. Ever since June had her epiphany that she can save other Gilead children even if she can’t save her own daughters, the narrative has been injected with a dose of intrigue, though not much else happens in “Witness” other than one disconcerting scene of sexual violation (we’ll get to that).
