It's Official: 'The Handmaid's Tale' Season 4 Is Set To Be Released This Year

It's Official: 'The Handmaid's Tale' Season 4 Is Set To Be Released This Year

Ever since the dramatic finale of season three of The Handmaid's Tale left June Osborne, played by Elisabeth Moss, being wounded as she risked her life to help children escape Gilead by plane, viewers have been hungry for news of a fourth season.

Luckily, fans of the hit series - based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel of the same name - can celebrate, as Season 4 is set to start filming in March, which should mean a release date later this year.

During the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Handmaid's Tale executive producer Warren Littlefield said: "We'll start with principal photography 2nd March, and we'll be on in the fall."

A brand-new season to binge-watch in autumn 2020? Yes please.

What do we know about the fourth season? Well, for one thing, most of it will be shot in Toronto, Canada.

Going by this post on the City of Toronto website, film production will kick off on the 2nd March and wrap on the 7th August.

A total of 10 episodes are expected to be filmed by the company Gilead 4 Productions Inc.

To date, the popular series has been filmed almost exclusively in Ontario, in locations like Hamilton, Oshawa and Cinespace Film Studios in Toronto.

First Trailer For 'The Handmaid's Tale' Season 4 Is Here

The full storyline of Atwood's original book - which follows the creation of a dystopian society where fertile women, dubbed 'handmaids', are forced into a slave trade to provide children - played out in the very first season.

The majority of the main cast is expected to return for another season, but with fans having no idea which way the action will go next, there's a lot of speculation riding on Season 4.

The Handmaid's Tale Has Been Renewed For Season 5

published ata month ago

The new series will likely pick up where Season 3's cliff-hanger left off. June helped the children successfully escape to Canada, but while they were being set free, Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) got arrested, so we are likely to get a follow-up on that scenario.

With the characters now split between Canada and Gilead, it will be interesting to see how The Handmaid's Tale's new location split plays out.

That's not all fans of the show have to look forward to, either. Atwood's new novel The Testaments, which scooped the Booker Prize in 2019 and takes readers 15 years into the future, is being turned into a sequel series by MGM TV and Hulu.

With production in the earliest stages, no official date has been announced for The Handmaid's Tale season four.

We can't wait for a mind-bending fourth serving of 'under his eye' action.
