It looks like Alexis Bledelwill have a lot to Talecome June…
Hulu has announced plans to premiere season three of the 37-year-old half-Argentinian American actress’s series The Handmaid’s Tale on Wednesday, June 5, with three new episodes, and subsequent installments released every Wednesday.
“We wanted to give the show as much time as possible to maintain the quality,” Hulu SVP of Originals Craig Erwichsaid about the decision to delay Handmaid’s Season 3 premiere. He added that he has seen the first two episodes of the upcoming season, and they are “spectacular”.
The 13-episode third season of the drama series will follow June’s resistance to the dystopian regime of Gilead and her struggle to strike back against overwhelming odds.
Viewers can expect to see startling reunions, betrayals, and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead that will force all characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: “Blessed be the fight.”
A new teaser trailer for Season 3 debuted during Super Bowl LIII, and painted a bleak, fire-filled picture of Gilead. The trailer was similar in tone to Ronald Reagan’s jarring 1984 “It’s Morning in America” presidential campaign ad.
The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Televisionand is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller.
In addition to Bledel, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her role on the show before becoming a regular cast member in season two, The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, Max Minghella, Samira Wiley and Bradley Whitford.
