'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.”
