Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale will be bigger, better and darker

Cape Town – The second season of the award-winning Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale will debut in the US later this month. 

Entertainment Weekly is giving fans of the show an exclusive look into what viewers can expect this season. 

The stars of the show Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley and Alexis Bledel grace the cover of the upcoming edition of the publication. 


Speaking about what to expect from the new season Elisabeth, who is also a producer on the show, says that it will be more complicated and bigger than season one. 

“People think the first season was dark! But we definitely pushed the envelope this year and there’s definitely a couple of things that people are going to have a really hard time watching,” says Elisabeth. 

The season will also explore Moira’s (Wiley) life in Canada and what happens to Emily (Bledel) when she is shipped off to the colonies. 

On Moira’s character this season Samira says she is “a real three dimensional and complex woman.”

For Emily things are only going to get worse…
