After much speculation, Season 4 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” has be officially pushed back to 2021. During Hulu’s NewFront event, it was announced that the show will return in 2021. The show was original supposed to premiere in 2020, but was shutdown just two weeks into production due to COVID-19.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” stars Elizabeth Moss (Offred), which takes place in Gilead where fertility rates have collapsed. Set in a dystopian future, fertile women are forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship.
Season 3, which debuted in June 2019, was driven by June’s resistance to the dystopian regime of Gilead and her struggle to strike back against overwhelming odds. Startling reunions, betrayals, and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead force all characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: Blessed be the fight.
