Extended emotional trailer for The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 just dropped

The fifth season sees June face off Serena in the aftermath of Commander Waterford's murder.

The extended trailer for season five of The Handmaid's Tale has just been dropped by Hulu and fans couldn't be more excited.

The trailer explores the aftermath of former handmaid June's murder of Commander Waterford at the end of season four. Watch below:

June says of Waterford in the trailer: "He was a monster. The founding father of Gilead. He took away our country. He had to pay for what he did. I killed him and I loved it so much."

A new character, a commander, meanwhile, says: "June Osborne is a cancer. We have to cut her out."

If you're new to the show, it is based on the Margaret Atwood novel of the name name and set in a dystopian future that sees women as state property in what was the US.

The show's IMBd synopsis reads: "Set in a dystopian future, a woman is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship."

June was the concubine of Commander Waterford and his wife Serena, and this season will see her face off Serena after his death.

In the trailer, June says she wants Serena to know that she's responsible for Waterford's death.

Reacting to the trailer, one fan wrote: "The more this show progresses, the more intense it gets! This show will hit differently now in today's environment!"

A second added: "It's gonna interesting and heart wrenching to see June go futher with her revenge. I want to see her revenge and to see Gillead burn but I'm worried many people who are close to June are gonna get killed."

"Serena vs June. This is gonna be epic, tragic and gut-wrenching," wrote a third, while a fourth added: "This honestly looks like the most intense season yet! I’m so excited!"

"I feel like writers are trying to describe June in this: 'He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster.' But honestly, she could burn a city and still be a lesser evil than Fred and Serena," remarked a fifth.

Elisabeth Moss, who plays June, told TV Line of season five: "I will say that the season itself is possibly one of the wilder rides that we've had. Some seasons a lot happens, some seasons not as much happens. This season, I almost can't keep up.

"And it's not lip service. I truly mean I almost can't keep up with the amount of activity that's happening."

Season five will be begin streaming on September 14 on Hulu.
