First Trailer for The Handmaids Tale is Dark and Twisted

We love Margaret Atwood. What else do we love? Her dystopian thriller, The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as actors Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, and Alexis Bledel. While I have been patiently waiting for the release of the series, a few snippets have come out that make it hard to be patient. It looks so good! Just yesterday, Hulu shared the first The Handmaid’s Tale trailer, and golly does it look dark!

In the trailer, Offred, played by Moss, gives a short narration, ending with “My name is Offred, and I intend to survive.” She then gets hit in the head… Eek! The sneak peak gives us glimpses of Moira (Wiley), Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd), who looks very sinister, to say the least, and Ofglen (Bledel), whose fate does not look promising… 

Check out the trailer below:


The 10-episode series will air on Hulu on April 26th.
