When will The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 come to Hulu?

We know The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 is happening. As we get closer to the end of Season 4, we need to know when we’ll get the next part of the story.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 was confirmed before Season 4 arrived. It’s great news for fans of the series who want to see more of this dystopian future that’s sadly sometimes looking like it could be a reality at times.

Season 4 has seen some things finally happen, including June getting out of Gilead and making it to Canada. Yes, she had to leave Hannah behind, but she is finally free physically. That doesn’t mean she’s free mentally. It’s clear that June has a lot of trauma to work through, and she’s not ready to start working through that just now.

She’s ready to fight, and with just a few episodes left of the season, it’s hard to see how she could do that right now. That means a lot of this fight could be held until Season 5. So, we need to know when that will happen.

Will The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 come to Hulu in 2021?

I wouldn’t expect a 2021 release date for the fifth season. It’s not started filming yet, which takes a good few months to complete. Then there is the post-production work after that.

While the pandemic is still a problem in Ontario, it’s not halted a lot of filming since getting back to work in the summer of 2020. There are a few restrictions and protocols to follow, but there’s no reason to think that filming won’t start when initially planned.

That being said, we’re probably looking at early 2022 at the earliest, but it’s likely to be later than that. We’ll keep an eye on when the season could arrive.
