Hulu’s hit series The Handmaid’s Tale has been getting delayed due to the COVID 19. And, we know the fans are impatient and want to grab all the updates at once. So, here we are. The season 3 finale left us all with a major cliffhanger and June’s fate is entirely dependent on season 4 and obviously writers. Few updates regarding the fourth season of The Handmaids Tale are dropped recently. And, we are more than happy to share them with you.
The Handmaids Tale is an American web Television series created by Bruce Miller for Hulu. The show is adapted from the novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood. With an intriguing storyline, the show tells the story of women who are used as concubines in the future world. Viewers love the idea of the show and have already turned into hardcore fans.
So, for all the fans, go ahead and catch all the updates:
The show was originally supposed to release the fourth season in fall 2020. However, the pandemic happened and now the release date is pushed back to 2021. Production was put to halt as soon as the virus started spreading back in March. Moreover, Hulu confirmed and announced that the series won’t be back before 2021.
The main lead Elizabeth Moss, who plays June also shared her thoughts on the delay. She said, “We were two weeks into shooting when we shut down, so we didn’t get a lot in the can.” She also told Deadline, that the writers of the show are still working, remotely from their homes, so, the work is being done in some way.
However, there is good news. The show resumed filming again in early September. Yikes!
Probable Plot For Season 4
There are not many updates on the storyline. However, we were blessed when the teaser for season 4 got out. The teaser majorly had scenes from previous seasons, but, it did give us an insight into the upcoming season 4.
We saw Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) talking about June (Elizabeth Moss) and we also witnessed Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford) telling how the escaped children are June’s legacy.
Apart from that, Miller also told the plans for the upcoming season. He said, “We are following June, and June lives in Gilead, and Gilead is not a nice place, and it will continue to be not a nice place. And we try to be very realistic about what would probably happen and how would things work, so over the break we’ve talked to the U.N.”
