Cherry Jones Joins 'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 in Important Role

Cherry Jones is set to play the mom of Elisabeth Moss‘ character in The Handmaid’s Tale season two.

The Tony and Emmy Award winning actress will appear in episode three of the series.

“She’s terrific literary character who’s now going to come to life for the first time and so it was important to me who that was,” Elisabeth told THR of the casting news. “I was obsessed with it for weeks and bothering everybody about it – way before anybody cared to talk about it. Cherry was my fantasy choice. I sent her the script, she wrote me a lovely email back and she said yes almost immediately.”

New episodes of the show will debut on Wednesday, April 25.
