The Handmaid's Tale: Season 4

Poster for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 4

Fourth season of Hulu's hit series. Set in a dystopian future, a woman (Elisabeth Moss) is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship. Adapted from Margaret Atwood's novel. More

On the story for season 4, creator Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter, "My arc is still very much the arc of the novel... this one woman's experience in Gilead at this time and her recollections that paint this picture of what it was like and what the experience of this world was like."

"People talk about how we're beyond the book, but we're not really. The book starts, then jumps 200 years with an academic discussion at the end of it, about what's happened in those intervening 200 years. It's maybe handled in an outline, but it's still there in Margaret's novel. We're not going beyond the novel; we're just covering territory she covered quickly, a bit more slowly."

Much of the fear factor is lost... This isn't to say that everything about the fourth season of Handmaid's Tale is bad.

While Season 4 may be trying to making the case for the show's continuation, what's not totally clear is how sustainable this path really will be.
