'The Handmaid's Tale' Adds Zawe Ashton for Season 4, Plus New Characters Revealed

The Handmaid’s Tale season four is coming in 2021 and a new cast member was just revealed!

Zawe Ashton, best known for her work in the Netflix projects Velvet Buzzsaw and Wanderlust and her work in Broadway’s Betrayal, is joining the cast for season four.

Series creator Bruce Miller told THR that Zawe “is going to play Moira’s girlfriend and an aid worker in Toronto.”

Bruce also talked about Mckenna Grace‘s role in the upcoming season. He said she “plays a young ‘wife,’ in the Gilead tradition. She’s so spectacular in the show. I’ve just been watching the first few episodes because I’m finally doing some editing, and she’s just wonderful. Watching her and [Elisabeth Moss] together, it’s great. June comes in contact with a lot of different people in the season, a lot more than usual, I would say.”

Also, Bruce said that Reed Birney is joining the show as “someone [from the world of] Gilead, who’s unexpectedly not Reed Birney-ish, but it’s been great to be able to build, and over episodes to build characters.”

'The Handmaid's Tale' Gets Renewed for Season 5, Before Season 4 Ever Premieres!

Hulu just announced that The Handmaid’s Tale is going to get a fifth season – and this is before the fourth season even premieres!

The upcoming fourth season of the Emmy-winning series was in production when the coronavirus pandemic hit earlier this year, which forced it to shut down. The season will have 10 episodes, down from the 13 episodes in seasons two and three.

While season four will premiere in 2021, it’s not yet clear when season five will premiere.

THR reports that season four sees “June (Elisabeth Moss) strike back against Gilead as a fierce rebel leader, but the risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges. Her quest for justice and revenge threatens to consume her and destroy her most cherished relationships.”

“We’re very grateful to Hulu and MGM that the show will be returning for a fifth season, and especially to our loyal fans for their support,” showrunner Bruce Miller said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be able to continue to tell these stories, with our incredible cast and crew, and can’t wait to be back on the air with season four next year.”

So stay tuned as we learn more about the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale, including a debut date.

Elisabeth Moss Gives Status Update on 'Handmaid's Tale' Season 4

Elisabeth Moss is opening up about when fans can expect another season of her hit Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale.

The third season premiered on June 5, 2019, so it’s likely that the fourth season would’ve been premiering very soon had it not been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We were only two weeks in, so we actually have an entire season to shoot,” Elisabeth said in a new interview with Extra.

You can definitely expect a fourth season in the future, but we’re going to have to wait a while for that to happen now.

Elisabeth added, “We want to go back to work because families have people to support and rent they need to pay, but at the same time no human’s life is worth a TV show. We’re just trying to figure out how to do it safely for everybody.”

Elisabeth has a new movie coming out on VOD next week. Learn more and watch the trailer!
