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.
