The Handmaid’s Tale was one of the best new dramas of 2017; an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel of the same name, it managed to be one of those rare few adaptations that in fact improved upon its source material.
It’s returning for a second season in 2018, which will be released on April 25th. Today, at the Television Critics Association press tour in California, showrunner Bruce Miller, executive producer Warren Littlefield and star Elisabeth Moss revealed some additional details about the upcoming second season.
In hindsight, I should have called this “analysing what we know about The Handmaid’s Tale season 2″. The current title is much too wordy.
Anyway, this is presented mostly for posterity now – subsequent news has mostly revealed that my theories, particularly about Marisa Tomei’s character, weren’t quite right.
