The fight for freedom continues in season 2 trailer for The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid's Tale painted quite the disturbing portrait of a dystopian future in which women were forced into sexual and child-bearing servitude in order to deal with worldwide infertility. Based upon the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, The Handmaid's Tale proved to be an immediate success and cleaned up at last year's Emmy Awards, nabbing best Drama, Best Actress (Elisabeth Moss), Best Supporting Actress (Ann Dowd), and more. Obviously the second season of the Hulu series has been much anticipated, and the recently released official trailer gives us our best look yet at the chilling events to come. Witnessing just how the government of Gilead came into power ended up being one of my favourite elements of the first season, and it looks as though we'll be getting more of that in season two as well.

The official synopsis of the second season of The Handmaid's Tale:

The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth. The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Television and is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller and executive produced by Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, Ilene Chaiken, and Elisabeth Moss. MGM serves as the international distributor for the series.

The second season of The Handmaid's Tale will debut on Hulu on April 25, 2018.
