[Warning: There are season 3 spoilers ahead!]
The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 just ended, and we can’t help but look into what’s happening with season 4. Showrunners are officially signed on for Handmaid’s Tale season 4. And there is so much that's about to happen.
"You did this, Resistors. Praise be. Season 4 of The #HandmaidsTale is happening!" the show shared on its Instagram on Friday.
We recently spoke with executive producer Warren Littlefield, and he confirms that talks are set to happen.
“We’re catching our breath from season 3, and then [creator Bruce Miller] and the writers will go into their think tank, and there’s still more stories to tell. There’s more of Gilead to fight,” he says.
Did you just get the chills too? While there’s certainly hope on the horizon for June and other members of the Resistance, we have so many questions about an upcoming fourth season. So, here’s everything we know about it:
When will The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 air?
Though showrunners officially announced it'll happen, they have yet to provide us with a timeline. However, you should expect to see The Handmaid’s Tale return sometime between April and June 2020. The first two seasons aired in April, but the third season of Handmaid’s Tale came out in June 2019.
How can I watch and stream Handmaid’s Tale?
You can start your free month trial by clicking here. And if you can’t get enough, you can keep your subscription going for just $5.99 a month.
Season 1 and 2 are currently on Amazon Prime, and new episodes of season three are currently streaming every week on Hulu.
Are there any season 4 spoilers yet?
Sadly, no. As Handmaid's Tale fans know, season 3 ended with us feeling partly relieved and partly anxious. While June managed to free so many women and children from Gilead, she's still there — with a gunshot wound. What's gonna happen next?!
And because there was that beautiful ending with the kids coming off the airplane, is there bound to be more peril in season 4? We’re already nervous about it.
How many seasons are expected for The Handmaid’s Tale?
As tough as some scenes are to watch, we don’t want this show to end. And showrunners clearly agree. Here’s what Hulu CEO Randy Freer told Variety about his company’s successful original drama:
“The creative process will determine, is it a fourth season, is it five seasons? And I think that’s one of the benefits for creators in the streaming world — shows can take a natural progression, they can live for as long as they should live or they can end. I think it’s unfair sometimes in the characterization of broadcast television that we talk about a show’s been canceled after four years or seven years, whatever it is … Look, I hope, as success goes, there’s 10 seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale.”
