Never call her Offred again! In season two of The Handmaid’s Tale, which will arrive in less than a month, our enslaved heroine, played by the incredible Elisabeth Moss, has every intention of smashing the chains of the patriarchy in the Republic of Gilead.
‘Everything is about to change’ is the message we can take from this intense trailer, which follows a promising initial teaser.
While June will stop at nothing to find her daughter, despite being pregnant with another child conceived with Nick (Max Minghella), Moira (Samira Wiley), exiled to Canada, joins the rebellion and gradually recovers her taste for life.
Meanwhile, Janine (Madeline Brewer) and Emily (Alexis Bledel) must survive in an even more hostile environment than the capital of Gilead: the colonies.
Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) tightens the screws of repression while the ruling powers are challenged more than ever. One particularly striking image is the servants’ iconic costume, most likely reimagined for a protest in another country: the headdress is black and red scarves cover the whole face.
In another chilling scene, thirty servants are lined up before the gallows. It’s a well-known fact: dictatorships are at their most dangerous when they are about to fall.
You’ll have to wait just under a month to see the fate of the servants in The Handmaid’s Tale, who will make their comeback on April 25 on Hulu.
