Hulu ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Sets April Premiere With New Photos
Our first look at Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale certainly got tongues wagging, though the streaming service declined to specify any further than an April 2017 premiere. Now, we know exactly when the Elisabeth Moss-led series will debut, while another round of photos give us gorgeous new looks at the cast.
In addition to the first shots of Moss’ Offred, Hulu now confirms that the series will premiere on April 26, 2017. A new round of photos also features fresh looks at stars Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, Leftovers favorite Ann Dowd and O-T Fagbenle. Check out the full synopsis:
The drama series, based on the award-winning, best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. 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 a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates 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.
Hulu will debut a trailer sometime in the next months, but what do we make of the latest Handmaid’s Tale photos?
