The first trailer for the fifth season of The Handmaid's Tale has just dropped - and it looks so good.
You can watch it below:
Set to a cover of Christina Aguilera's, Fighter, the trailer begins in the aftermath of Fred Waterford's murder.
Fans will know that Serena Waterford's husband, Fred, was brutally murdered by June and other former handmaids who had escaped the clutches of Gilead in the last season.
"I want her to know that it was me," June can be heard saying.
And despite June's husband Luke willing her to 'forget about' Serena, it seems it's not so straightforward.
"I feel Gilead pulling me back," says June, while a clip of Nick flashes on screen.
Meanwhile, Mark Tuello can be heard eerily adding: "A handmaid killing her commander, Gilead is not going to let that stand."
The trailer appears to finish with June and Serena coming face-to-face, with one of them holding a gun.
Fans will know the final scene of the fourth season showed June's husband, Luke finding her covered in blood, holding her daughter Nichole in her bedroom. Luke sinks to the floor as he realises what has happened.
"I know. I'm sorry," whispers June. "Just give me five minutes, okay? Just give me five minutes with her, then I'll go."
It's not clear why June feels she has to leave, but creator and showrunner Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter: "That moment at the end is her as a mother knowing she had chosen something that makes her feel like she can never be a mother again.
"She’s holding that baby and she’s thinking to herself this way, as a mother, and then she thinks of herself that way in the woods with dead Fred, and then she thinks of herself as a mother again and that’s where she is. Those two things are pushing up against each other... You put those two things together when she believes, and I think we as the audience believe, that those two things can’t coexist."
But with Fred gone, what's next for Serena? Speaking to Deadline, Yvonne Strahovski - who plays Serena - explained some possible theories.
She said: “I don’t really know which way they're gonna go with Serena, but I keep imagining her moving forward. Frustratingly, for the audience in a capacity where she gets out and things work out and she gains some kind of political traction.”
Season 5 of The Handmaid's Tale drops on 14 September on Hulu.
