It’s just a few short weeks until the return of Hulu’s award-winning drama THE HANDMAID’S TALE and it looks to be an epic sophomore season from the trailers that have been released. This latest one asks the audience, “Is this what freedom looks like?” There is a series of images, including a mass execution of red-robed women, with pieces of dialogue overtop that will excite any viewers of the show for the new season.
Religion is, of course, an important part of the world of Gilead but this second trailer appears to lean into it even more than the first did, ramping up the themes of social commentary. It looks to be a thrilling second season now that the story will inevitably depart from the book and able to delve into the backgrounds of more characters and bring in the addition of new ones. Season two guest stars include Marisa Tomei, Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones, and Clea DuVall.
Season two premiers on April 25 on Hulu.
