Praise Be, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4 Finally Has a Premiere Date

When Hulu renewed The Handmaid’s Tale for a fourth season, its third wasn’t even over yet, so it looks like we’re not getting out of this dystopian nightmare anytime soon! What the hell is going to happen to Nick? Is June ever going to get out? Do the Waterfords ever actually get Nichole back? There are so many questions that need to be answered.

Here’s everything we know about season 4, which finally, finally, finally has a premiere date after major production delays.

Yes, it is happening.

Okay, yes, you probably deduced that based on the headline of this article, but the news is finally official that Handmaid’s is giving fans another season. Thank god, praise be, let the lord open, etc.

But it’s super delayed.

The process of actually creating the new season has hit a major snag thanks to COVID-19 delays, but production got back up and running in September 2020.

The season was originally supposed to air in fall 2020, but Hulu announced it was pushed to 2021.

Hulu finally announced a premiere date…but only for three episodes.

On February 25, Hulu announced that it’s dropping three episodes of season 4 on Wednesday, April 28, so mark your cals! There will be 10 episodes total (no word on when we can expect episodes 4 through 10 to debut), and this is how Hulu describes them:

“In the 10-episode upcoming season, June (Elisabeth Moss) strikes back against Gilead as a fierce rebel leader, but the risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges. Her quest for justice and revenge threatens to consume her and destroy her most cherished relationships.”

Iiiiinteresting. 🤔

Plus, Hulu released a teaser.

The good people of Hulu still went ahead and dropped a couple trailers for The Handmaid’s Tale season 4, setbacks be damned. Parts do reuse footage from previous seasons, but there are still glimpses of what’s to come, including Commander Lawrence calling the escaped children “June’s legacy” and Aunt Lydia straight-up seething.

Elisabeth Moss implied that season 4 will be just as brutal.

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Elisabeth didn’t give much intel, but she did say this:

“When people say the show is hard to watch, I get my hackles up,” she said. “If you can’t face our show, then how are you going to face what’s actually happening in the world?”

“It’s shockingly relevant. It’s important to hold that mirror up to society and to ourselves to try to get people to face what’s going on, before it’s too late.”

It’ll have 10 episodes instead of 13.

Yes, season 4 will be a little shorter than anything previously, but showrunner Bruce Miller said it’s not cause for alarm.

“From my point of view, [the decision] was 100 percent creative,” Miller told IndieWire. “Some storylines just seem to shake out as a 10-episode story, in my eyes.”

This likely won’t be the final season.

Season 4 won’t be wrapping things up in the series, according to executive producer Warren Littlefield. He said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that there’s still more in the works.

“We have not planned season 4 to be the end, but we also look to Margaret [Atwood]’s book The Testaments and know that that story takes us 15 years into the future,” Littlefield said. “We don’t see ending it in [season 4], and I can honestly say to you, we don’t have a definitive out. But I think we want to keep the bar high, and it would not be a bad thing to leave the audience wanting more, and then we could ideally shift into The Testaments.”

The new season has some major questions to answer.

Throughout the last few episodes of season 3, the show has raised a lot of questions that it has not answered. Mainly, how the hell do the D.C. handmaids eat? And why does no one on this show have a Boston accent?

Hopefully, we’ll get some answers next season to these totally irrelevant yet still confusing questions.
