Hulu renews 'The Handmaid's Tale' for a second season

Who better to discuss the show with than the leading cast? ". We can't wait to explore the world of Gilead and continue Margaret [Atwood]'s vision with another season on Hulu".

The panel discussion, hosted by The Hollywood Reporter's senior film writer Tatiana Siegel, promises behind-the-scenes stories about how the grim series was made. Hulu releases new episodes every Wednesday.

The same passivity Offred displays feels similar to the ignorance of privileged Americans before the election, and like the theocratic takeover in "The Handmaid's Tale", the election served as a catalyst for those Americans to wake up and realize that passivity is no longer an option.

The ambitious series co-stars Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel and Joseph Fiennes, and has so far been embraced by critics. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids - where anyone could be a spy for Gilead - all with one goal: "to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her". "But at the same time, you're sitting there and watching your husband have sex with another woman right in front of you".

After a brief stay in hibernation after her Presidential defeat last November, Clinton has been out-and-about hiking, heading to the theatre, giving us a pep-talk, and making some pretty bad-ass speeches. "They're both patriarchies", Moss said, "but I would say "Handmaid's" is probably worse in some ways". Deadline also specified that the series stars Elisabeth Moss. Her case is, of course, a radical leap from the war on reproductive rights raging on today, but it's hard to ignore how closely it mirrors the looming threat to women's body autonomy.

Ultimately, he is using her as a means to an end: a baby. She even acknowledged that "more invention will have to take place".

Without revealing any spoilers, I can tell you that The Handmaid's Tale is disturbing.

The trailer for Season 1 of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale is below.

The Handmaid's Tale will air exclusively on Hulu from April 26. There's no telling where the show will go next.
