Handmaid's Tale Season 2 First Look Soaks Elisabeth Moss in Blood

Handmaid's Tale Season 2 First Look Soaks Elisabeth Moss in Blood

The first images from The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 have been released, and they are every bit as attractive and frightening and visually stunning as you'd hope.

"The Handmaid's Tale" won two Golden Globe awards last week, for best television drama, and best actress in a television drama for Moss.

According to Hulu, season two will be "shaped by Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead".

"'Gilead is within you' is a favourite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season 2, Offred and all our characters will fight against-or succumb to-this dark truth".

Showrunner Bruce Miller has near-complete creative freedom for The Handmaid's Tale season 2, which just debuted its first look.

While HBO's Big Little Lies was the top victor at last weekend's Golden Globes ceremony, The Handmaid's Tale didn't walk away empty handed.

Riskin was a professional ballerina before she become known as the first lady of luxury real estate. "She's leaving a huge void". But she was exhausted , as were many here after the warnings, the evacuations, the close calls and the worry of recent weeks.

Season two will be uncharted territory even for avid fans of the book; however the 78-year-old author will serve as consulting producer, just like she was for the first.

"The biggest barrier of season 2 was season 1".

'You sort of intimidate yourself.

One of the sneak peek pictures shows the funeral of one of the handmaids, a scene Miller is particularly proud of. "Instead, you just have to do not forget to try and tell a good story". It'll also give us a look at what happened to those who've been exiled to the Colonies. "I just want the viewers to experience it for themselves!"

Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale is set to premiere on Hulu sometime in April. Are you looking forward to the new season? "These scenes that are so handsome, while set in such a bad place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy".
