Who else was addicted to the gripping first season of The Handmaid's Tale?


Much like the novel in which the series was based, it made for gripping material but not because, as the book did, it presented a dystopian vision of the future so far from our own - but because there was so much in it eerily relevant to our own times. 


And now, despite the creators having used up the source material for season one, the second season is almost here and moving into uncharted territory.  


Elisabeth Moss's Offred seeks to find freedom — or perhaps something else — as she's left behind the home where she once served as a Handmaid, as we see in the newest trailer. It also features a glimpse at Offred’s friend Moira and the Commander and his wife arguing over Offred’s disappearance, and many more familiar and new faces.


But the good news is, despite the book being essentially finished in terms of the original story, author Margaret Atwood, who started writing The Handmaid's Tale in 1984 will have a greater role in the script's development. "I think I will be more involved in the second season because we will be in uncharted territories, so more invention will have to take place," she explained to Entertainment Weekly


As you'll see from the trailer below, these uncharted territories look pretty terrifying but we still can't wait for the new series. 



Season 2 premieres on Hulu April 25th in the States and hopefully over here soon after.
