The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 5 Everything We Need To Know.

The Handmaid Tale Season 5

The Handmaid’s Tale is an American drama television series based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel of the same name. It was created for Hulu by Bruce Miller and produced by MGM Television with Daniel Wilson as showrunner. The first season premiered on April 26, 2017.

In this blog post, we will discuss what we know about the upcoming fifth season so far and speculate about what else we can expect from!

We only know that it will be thirteen episodes long and air weekly as opposed to its previous season, which aired in two batches. One thing we do know for sure is that there won’t be any time jumps from last year’s finale like in season three.

The fifth season has also been confirmed to be part of a final story arc, and it will focus on the conclusion of Gilead’s society which we have come to know so well over these four seasons.

One thing that is certain about this upcoming season is that there are going to be some major plot twists in store. We are also expecting to see the return of major characters like Commander Lawrence, Emily, and Janine, who have all been absent for a long time now.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Season Five will premiere on April 25, 2020, and it promises to be the most shocking season yet.
