May the Lord open — and easily end “The Handmaid’s Tale” already.
That gained’t happen anytime rapidly, as Hulu launched Friday that its dystopian nightmare drama will return for a fourth season subsequent yr with star Elisabeth Moss.
The data is a bit stunning, considering that the gathering, tailor-made from Margaret Atwood’s novel, is engaged on narrative fumes as a result of it nears its Aug. 14 Season 3 conclusion — with June/OfJoseph (Moss) plotting to smuggle over 50 children out of Gilead with help from emotionally broken Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford), one in all Gilead’s chief architects. Good events!
The assortment has been a boon for Hulu, garnering a slew of Emmy nominations and statuettes for creator Bruce Miller, Moss, Samira Wiley (Moira) and Ann Dowd as fanatically evil, sadistic Aunt Lydia — who lords over the handmaids and isn’t shy about using violence and torture to take care of them in line. Whitford snared an Emmy nomination earlier this month, along with customer star Cherry Jones, who performs June’s mother, Holly Maddox.
