'The Handmaid's Tale' Season Two Trailer Is Here and It Promises Blood

"It's going to get worse" and we can see why.

When Hulu announced the return of The Handmaid's Tale after its first season garnered widespread acclaim, it made a lot of fans nervous. After all, there was only one book, so making a second season would be totally original. Based on Margaret Atwood's critically acclaimed novel of the same name, The Handmaid's Tale explores the startling misogyny and subjugation of women in the patriarchal society of Gilead.

 

Returning to screens on April 25th, the eight-time Emmy winner will pick off where it left with June's departure from Gilead and the chaos left behind.  With the cliffhanger finale of season one ending roughly in the same place as its source material, many viewers were curious as to where the series was headed.

 

If you've had any doubts as to whether or not the second season would be able to surpass the incredible, startling, and downright disturbing nature of the first season, you can now quell those fears.

 

Take a look!

 

 

As we recently reported, fans will be able to see familiar faces, as most of the original cast members will return, including Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Madeleine Brewer, and Samira Wiley. They will be joined by newcomer, Clea Duvall, who will play the role of Ofglen's wife, Sylvia.

 

While most of the cast is nothing new, there will be plenty of new storylines in store for viewers. As briefly seen in the trailer, the landscapes will shift from the snowy somber streets of Gilead to the crimson hues of the colonies, or the toxic wastelands where infertile women and enemies of Gilead are sent to, showrunner Bruce Miller confirmed.

 

While season one was an eye-opening experience, exposing viewers to the unsettling issue of gender inequality and subjugation, season two is sure to go even further in this critical conversation.

 

Elisabeth Moss recently remarked on what fans can expect in the upcoming season, saying, "it's going to get worse." Based on the trailer, we can see why.

 

While you wait for the premiere of season two on April 25th, here are new photos from the upcoming season hat can give you a new look into what you can expect.
