Praise be! The first trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale S4 has dropped

The Handmaid’s Tale is the chilling story of a dystopian, totalitarian future America where freedoms are curtailed in favour of “returning to traditional values” – and it’s never felt more relevant.

The first three seasons were followed religiously by legions of fans, and now the trailer for the much-anticipated fourth season has arrived.


Update: Season 4 is now ready to binge on Showmax.


In the meantime, binge the first three seasons and remind yourself why this is one of the most important series right now. Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss as Offred, a woman forced to leave her daughter to become a Handmaid in the household of an elite commander. The story follows Offred, formerly June, as she tries to navigate the cruel and dehumanising world, and as she finds ways to resist and bring the regime crashing down.
