'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 Returning in April, Plus More Hulu Premiere Dates

The Handmaid's Tale returning in April and other big Hulu premieres

The news was revealed by Hulu via the official The Handmaid's Tale Twitter channel.

Hulu's Emmy-winning drama "The Handmaid's Tale" is returning in April of next year, and production of Season 2 is now underway, the streaming service announced on Tuesday. No specific date in April was given.

After an explosive first season - which picked up eight Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series, and saw Elisabeth Moss, Ann Dowd, and Alexis Bledel awarded with acting trophies - the second season of The Handmaid's Tale will delve even further into the dystopian Gilead as a pregnant Offred (Moss) tries to free herself and her forthcoming child from the totalitarian state. Clea DuVall (who plays Marjorie on Veep) will join Hulu's prized gem as the newest member of the Stepford Gilead wives club. Season two will deviate even more from the book than season one, since the plot of the book has already run its course in the show.
