Handmaid's Tale Season 4: All The Clues From The New Trailer

A trailer has finally dropped for The Handmaid's Tale season 4 - and there are tonnes of hints as to what is in store for June.

Check it out below:

The dystopian TV drama ended its last season showing Elisabeth Moss' June trapped in Gilead after failing to escape into Canada.

Heroically, she put herself forward as a decoy to help other families across the border, risking her own safety to help others - including her daughter Nicole - to freedom.

After being shot by a soldier in the woods, it looked as if June wasn't going to make it, but then a group of Handmaids came to her rescue.

But what happens next?

Well, the trailer has a few clues...

June is ready to fight

The first obvious take is that June is ready to fight after arriving safely in Gilead. Her army of handmaids is going strong, and it's obvious she's rattling Aunt Lydia and Fred.

(Queue some big explosions, dangerous weapons and fights as June fearlessly faces whatever it takes to support the resistance...)"She's out there planning who knows what atrocities to visit on our righteous nation," Aunt Lydia says - keen to thwart June's plans at any costs. "Find her...and bring her to me."

It appears that June and Aunt Lydia actually do come face to face later on in the season, as the trailer shows June holding a metal bar against her former oppressor's throat.

Will she make it out alive?

June and Nick reunite

Secondly, the trailer shows that a romantic reunion is in store for her and Nick (yaaas!).

Here's to hoping Nick remains a vital ally to June as she attempts to keep fighting for freedom.

We see Hannah again

We get another sneak peak at her daughter Hannah in the upcoming season two. Hannah is currently living with another family in Gilead, who want to raise her to one day be the mistress of her house, with handmaids of her own.

While we don't know if Hannah and June will come face to face in this series, we do know that her desire to free her daughter from the shackles of Gilead and its regime is her driving force, and remains at the heart of everything she does.

Countries are noticing Gilead's atrocities

In the trailer, we also learn that other countries are finally beginning to put "global sanctions" on Gilead.

Whether this leads to any chance is yet to be uncovered, but it is a hint that political unrest is only going to worsen in the coming series.

Will June get back to Canada?

While all of the above are certainly shockers, the biggest spoiler comes at the end, when we see a group of people arriving at the Canadian border - could June be one of them?

We hear her say: "My name is June Osborne, I am a citizen of the United States".

Does this mean she's made it back in time to testify at the Waterford's trial?

Fans of the show will remember that, at the end of Season 3, we see Serena Joy arrested in Canada.

Despite her helping June in the resistance in return for immunity, the immunity doesn't cover her forcing June to have sex with Nick in order for her to bear her a child of her own.

Fingers crossed a hefty punishment is coming her way...

Here's to seeing more of badass June and hearing quotes from her like: "Men. F***ing pathological. You are not in charge. I am."

Blessed be the fruit.
