@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG If you escaped, would you ever go back to @HandmaidsOnHulu Gilead? #MovieAddicts suggests reasons June may return in Season 5. Join Thursdays, 8 pm ET, from 1/13/22, “If America Fails?: The Coming Tyranny.”
Movie Addicts provides history and background on The Handmaid’s Tale Hulu TV series and cast, and offers conjecture on June’s Return to Gilead in Season 5 to come. Following the brutal conclusion to Season 4, they explore reasons June may decide to return to Gilead, including:
- Hannah – June may go back to rescue her eldest daughter.
- Serena – if the now pregnant Serena decides to go back to finish what she started, June may follow her to settle scores with Serena and Aunt Lydia.
- The handmaids – June’s sense of loyalty to other handmaids may inspire her to return to save them from Gilead and destroy this dysfunctional society.
- Nick – since June fell in love with him while trapped in Gilead, she may want to return to rescue him.
What do you imagine you would do in June’s position? — LMO
“About Handmaid’s Tale: The Handmaid’s Tale is an American dystopian tragedy television series created by Bruce Miller, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. The series was ordered by the streaming service Hulu as a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes, for which production began in late 2016. The plot features a dystopia following a Second American Civil War wherein a totalitarian society subjects fertile women, called ‘Handmaids,’ to child-bearing slavery. The first three episodes of the series premiered on April 26, 2017; the subsequent seven episodes were released every Wednesday. In May 2017, the series was renewed for a second season; which premiered on April 25, 2018. In May 2018, Hulu renewed the series for a third season, which premiered on June 5, 2019. In July 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth season, which is scheduled to premiere in 2021. In September 2019, it was announced that Hulu and MGM were developing a sequel series, to be based on Atwood’s 2019 novel The Testaments. The Handmaid’s Tale’s first season won eight Primetime Emmy Awards from 13 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. It is the first show produced by Hulu to win a major award as well as the first series on a streaming service to win an Emmy for Outstanding Series. It also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama. Elisabeth Moss was also awarded the Golden Globe for Best Actress. Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale is premiering in 2021. Originally, the new season was scheduled to premiere in fall 2020, but production came to a halt in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. Six months later, in September, production resumed in Toronto.
“This time around, viewers can expect 10 episodes instead of the usual 13, one of which will be directed by actress Elisabeth Moss (June Osborne). According to showrunner Bruce Miller, the decision ‘was 100% creative,’ allowing the show to focus on a smaller part of the story instead of multiple story arcs. ‘Some storylines just seem to shake out as a 10-episode story, in my eyes,’ he told IndieWire. ‘It gives us a little more freedom because you can rely more on one propulsive element.’ The teaser for season 4 shows the last time we saw June and hints at what’s to come. ‘I can’t rest. My daughter deserves better. We all deserve better. Change never comes easy,’ June says in it. ‘This war isn’t going to win itself. We’re just getting started.’ Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale will feature the show’s regulars — Elisabeth, Max Minghella (Commander Nick Blaine), Bradley Whitford (Commander Joseph Lawrence), Joseph Fiennes (Commander Fred Waterford), Yvonne Strahovski (Serena Joy Waterford), Alexis Bledel (Dr. Emily Malek Ph.D.), Samira Wiley (Moira), Ann Dowd (Aunt Lydia), O-T Fagbenle (Luke Bankole), Madeline Brewer (Janine), and Amanda Brugel (Rita). In addition, Sam Jaeger who portrayed American representative Mark Tuello throughout season 2 and 3 was added to the main cast for the latest installment. Viewers will also spot a new face from Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House. Actress Mckenna Grace will play Mrs. Keyes, described as ‘a sharply intelligent, teenaged wife of a much older Commander who rules her farm and household with confidence.’ The new character will show duality with a ‘calm and pious’ exterior but actually suffers ‘with turmoil’ and ‘insanity’ internally. Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Yvonne Strahovski, Joseph Fiennes, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Alexis Bledel, Madelaine Brewer, Samira Wiley, Amanda Brugel, Bradley Whitford, Nina Kiri, Sydney Sweeney. . .” — Movie Addicts
