The Handmaid’s Tale’s third season isn’t even over yet, but Hulu just renewed it for a fourth, so it looks like we’re not getting out of this dystopian nightmare anytime soon!

What the hell is going to happen to Nick? Is June ever going to get out? Do the Waterfords ever actually get Nichole back? There are so many questions that need to be answered and the season isn’t even done.

Here’s everything we know about season 4, which is admittedly not that much...yet.

There‘s going to be one.

Okay, yes, so you probably deduced that based on the headline for this article, but the news is finally official that Handmaid’s is getting another season. Thank god, praise be, let the lord open, etc.

It was announced literally today, which means the process of actually creating the new season probably hasn’t started yet. Basically, that means we have a long way to go before we actually see it. That’s okay though, because there are still three episodes left in the current season.

We don’t know who’s returning...yet.

Without having seen the end of the third season, it’s hard to tell who will be coming back. Like, what if a major character dies in the finale? We literally don’t know. That said, it’s probably safe to assume the major players are returning until you hear any news otherwise. That means the tension between June, Serena, and Fred will probably live to see another day season.

But Yvonne Strahovski acts like she's in.

In an interview with Variety, she said that just because her story has been moving away from June’s this season doesn't mean she won’t be around for the next. “I certainly didn’t have a conversation with them where I said, ‘Hey guys, I need less scenes,’” she said. “I really love this role, and I love this show.”

Okay, so we can probably assume she’ll be back for S4.

Elisabeth Moss gave the indication that the next season would be just as brutal.

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Elisabeth didn’t give much info on season 4, but she did say this:

“When people say the show is hard to watch, I get my hackles up,” she said. “If you can’t face our show, then how are you going to face what’s actually happening in the world?”

“It’s shockingly relevant. It’s important to hold that mirror up to society and to ourselves to try to get people to face what’s going on, before it’s too late.”

The new season has some major questions to answer.

Throughout the last few episodes, the show has raised a lot of questions that it has not answered. Mainly, how the hell do the D.C. handmaids eat? And why does no one on this show have a Boston accent?

Hopefully, we’ll get some answers next season to these totally irrelevant yet still confusing questions.
