Hulu has finally set the premiere date for The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5. Get ready for a fall of drama and fear.
We’ve waited a long time to find out what’s in store for June after she killed Fred Waterford (her rapist). We certainly don’t blame her for her actions. Technically, they’re on No Man’s Land, which suggests that she could get away with it all. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some personal repercussions, especially when it comes to her relationship with Luke.
June has already struggled to feel safe now that she’s in Canada. She’s also dealing with the feeling of guilt for leaving Hannah behind. However, she had to get out before there was trouble.
Meanwhile, Serena Joy decided to work with Fred again. They showed a united front as Fred faced trial for war crimes. Now she’s ready to play the part of the grieving widow to grow the support for Gilead in Canada.
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 premiere date confirmed
TVLine shares that Hulu has finally set the premiere date for the season. The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 will arrive on Hulu on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
The show will have a two-episode premiere. After that, the episodes will release weekly. This is pretty common for The Handmaid’s Tale. The most we’ve seen released at once in the past is four episodes. Hulu prefers the weekly release format, which has proven to be better overall for TV shows.
There is a lot going on in the world of The Handmaid’s Tale. While Serena Joy builds the Gilead support in Canada, Luke and Moira want to tear it all down and save Hannah. Meanwhile, Commander Lawrence wants to change Gilead, and he wants Aunt Lydia to help him do that. Does he actually want to protect the women, or is this just a ploy to gain his power and comfort back?
