‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4 Trailer Released

By February 28, 2021Adaptations, News

Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has become an essential book when it comes to feminist reading. The novel follows a young woman living in a dystopian America where women are treated as second-class citizens in a patriarchal society. The book takes plenty of inspiration from real-life injustices women have endured throughout history and serves as a cautionary tale to anyone who believes such inequality could occur in the future. The book was recently adapted into a series by the streaming company Hulu and received critical acclaim for recreating and expanding upon the source material. If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the fourth series, then you’ll want to check out the newly released trailer.

The trailer’s description reads: “Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.”

While the COVID-19 pandemic has seen many films and TV shows either postponed or outright cancelled, the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale is set to air later this year. No doubt we will see more of what’s to come in the near future.
