If you aren’t watching Hulu‘s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale you need to get on that now! And, apparently you’re one of only a few, because Hulu has announced, “The Handmaid’s Tale premiere has been watched by more Hulu viewers than any other series premiere – original or acquired – on the service.” This enthusiasm for the show has earned it a second season, only four episodes into the first one.
Frankly, I’m not surprised. The show is amazing. Elisabeth Moss is a force of quiet dissent. Yvonne Strahovski is, at the same time, sympathetic and terrifying. All of the actors are killing it. The aesthetic and the storytelling are top notch. Any fan of dystopian worlds, fantasy, or quality narrative would be silly to miss it. Seriously, you need to watch this show.
The Handmaid’s Tale is streaming on Hulu now. New episodes arrive every Wednesday.
Season two will consist of 10 episodes, reports tvline.com. It will arrive some time in 2018. Blessed be the fruit.
