The first full trailer for The Handmaid's Tale season 3 has been released.

Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.

Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarised ‘return to traditional values'.

As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world.

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.

The new clip shows a revolution on the rise.

The series returns to American network, Hulu, on June 5th. The drama previously aired on RTÉ 2. A return date has yet to be announced.

The Handmaid's Tale Sequel

Last year, a sequel to The Handmaid's Tale was announced. The Testaments will take place 15 years after Offred's final scene in the original novel.

The Testaments is slated for publication in September.

Voting is open in 98FM's Best Of Dublin Awards. Have your say here.
