The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 has officially begun. How many episodes are in this season to tell the full tale?

The first two episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 are now available to stream on Hulu. This is the penultimate season of the series, with Season 6 now confirmed as the last. We know things are about to get crazy and anything could happen. There’s a good chance that June isn’t staying out of Gilead. After all, Hannah is still in there.

You’ll want to binge-watch the season as soon as you can. That means knowing when all the episodes are available. To even work that out, we need to know how many episodes are going to be in this season.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 episode count

This isn’t a show that has been consistent with the episode count. The first and fourth seasons had 10 episodes, while the second and third seasons had 13 episodes each. What about this latest season?

There will be 10 episodes in Season 5.

With the first two episodes released today and the rest coming weekly, that means we know the finale will air on Wednesday, Nov. 9. That’s the day that all 10 episodes will be available to binge-watch for those who prefer to watch that way.
