Channel 4 has confirmed The Handmaid's Tale will return for Season 4 this year - and we are so excited.

You can watch a trailer for the fourth instalment below:

While there's currently no UK release date, we do know the fourth season drops on Hulu on 28th April, so we're hoping we won't be too far behind!

And we can't wait to see what's in store for June (played by Elisabeth Moss). As fans will know, at the end of Season 3, the dystopian drama left us reeling after June was gravely wounded while rescuing the children of Gilead, many of whom safely arrived in Canada.

Serena Joy was also arrested, after learning that her immunity doesn't cover her forcing June to have sex with Nick (Max Minghella). And speaking of Nick, it's expected we'll see more of him in Season 4, much to fans' joy!

The fourth season will feature 10 episodes (

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, Max said: "I'm really excited to go back, and I know that the direction of the show is going to shift. This season was a catalyst for a lot of exciting stuff, so I think we're all excited about what next season's going to look like."

And it certainly sounds like it's going to be an epic season, with Elisabeth Moss telling Digital Spy last year: "Part of the reason why it's taken a little bit longer, besides just timing, is that we are making it a bit of a bigger season this year. We're really stretching the limits of our capabilities, production wise, and we're on the move a lot.

"We're not sitting in a studio between four walls very much, so it really is a bigger season and that's taken a little [longer]. I've been in Toronto since mid-January prepping."

The show will be coming to Channel 4 this year (

Of course, the show - like every other film and series this year - has suffered some delay due to Covid, but it certainly sounds like it will be worth the wait.

As soon as we hear anything about a release date, you'll be the first to know!
