The Handmaid’s Tale season 2 is coming – and you can watch the first trailer right here

Hulu has released the first trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale season 2, which is set to debut on the streaming platform on April 25, 2018 – and you can watch it right here.

The second season picks up where the first left off, with Offred being captured by the authorities, while her friend Moira escaped into non-oppressive Canada.

The trailer itself is an emotional rollercoaster. We see Offred gagged by officials, Moria in Canada, and resistance movements emerging in the feared colonies.

We aren’t in the business of spoiling critically-acclaimed, must-see shows, but for the sake of generating some excitement, we’ll let you in on a little secret…

The colonies we speak of are contaminated regions of the former United States, foreshadowed in the first season, where the Republic of Gilead sends its prisoners.

And they’re a seriously scary.

Don’t believe us? You can catch a (very short) glimpse of one in the trailer below.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning dystopian novel, The Handmaid’s Tale depicts life in a totalitarian society, in which women are stripped of all rights.

The first season earned production company Hulu a total of three Golden Globes at the beginning of January and a number of Emmy Awards in September 2017.

It’s available for streaming on Hulu in the US, while Channel 4 has confirmed it will be picking up the show again in the UK, so you’ll be able to stream it using the network’s All4 service. However, it’s still unclear if The Handmaid’s Tale season 2 will be released in the UK at the same time as it is in the States.
