In its fifth season, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘I could finally see Gilead crumble under June Osborne’s towering gaze. But to see it we will have to wait a bit: there is still no release date for the next season of the Hulu series, starring Elisabeth moss and based on the novels of Margaret Atwood. Turned into a cultural icon and one of the most established series of the moment, perhaps the moment will come soon when the maids will have to say goodbye. And not only in fiction.
Following the intense (and bloody) finale of season four, aired in spring 2021, it’s time to see what the future holds for history. We collect everything we know about season 5 of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, from its release date to who will return to the cast.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale 5’: Is Season 5 Confirmed?
Indeed: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ has been renewed for a fifth season. We knew it even before the premiere of the fourth, showing the full support of MGM and Hulu in which we can consider their flagship. The creator and showrunner Bruce miller told The Hollywood Reporter: “We are very grateful to Hulu and MGM for the renewal of the series for a fifth season, and especially to our loyal fans for their support … We are delighted to be able to continue telling these stories, with our incredible cast. and the rest of the team. “
However, it’s unclear if season 5 could be the last. Miller confessed that the series was about to reach a “tipping point” with the fourth season, but in December 2020 he said about the possibility of signing a final season: “I have to say that I would have had very different ideas before the pandemic. I mean, we talked about it, and Lizzie [Elisabeth Moss] and I’ve talked about it, and the writing team and I have talked about it extensively about precisely where we’re going, but I feel like after this year, it’s a good time to reassess. “He continued,” I know where I am in history and I feel like we’re reaching some kind of tipping point, but if that’s the end or not, I don’t know. I feel like it’s a good time to re-evaluate everything we were thinking about, mainly because the world of history has opened up and the real world has changed a lot.“.
While we wait for more news on the subject, the cast gathered on Instagram to announce the renewal of the series. “I am also delighted to announce that we have been renewed for a season 5,” Moss revealed in the video. “It is a privilege and an honor for me to tell this story … It is going to be a wild ride”.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale 5’: Release Date
For now we will have to wait. It’s only a few weeks since the fourth season is over, and it’s too early to talk about dates. Even so, the usual with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a season each year. This trend was broken with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, but they would not have to suffer those delays for next year.
In an interview with Deadline, Bruce Miller revealed that preparation for season 5 is going according to plan. “Beautifully,” he said. “We are just beginning to put our threads together and bring our writers and the rest of the team together to put them back together”, has continued.
Here are spoilers for the end of the fourth season of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’
‘The Handmaid’s Tale 5’: How will the story continue?
It is clear that ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ has always had a certain surprise factor to leave fans hooked season after season, but this time, with the end of the fourth season, it has been really forceful. Nothing will be the same again after this season, in which we have seen June finally escape Gilead and prepare her revenge against the Waterfords from Canada.. At the expense, yes, of their love relationships and even their mental stability. The protagonist of the series is entering dark lands, but the accumulated rage against the criminal state that has tortured her for years, and in which her daughter Hannah is still kidnapped, is too intense.
In the final episode of season 4, Fred Waterford is killed by a group of women led by June on neutral ground between Gilead and Canada. The ex-Commander was supposed to be about to get his freedom thanks to all the information he was giving the Canadian government about his fascist neighbors, but in the end June made Mark Tuello (Sam jaeger) an offer he could not refuse: more than a score of imprisoned women than Gilead, via Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford), he was willing to release in exchange for Waterford.
This night of slaughter that the protagonist organizes leaves Serena Waterford (Yvonne Strahovski) widowed and pregnant, and we are not clear if released. And the relationship between June and Luke (OT Fagbenle)? Very touched. In the last scene of the season, we see that June has come home and is saying goodbye to Nichole, because she knows that, after what she has done in the woods, there is no way she can go home as if it had not happened. nothing.
In Entertainment Weekly, Bruce Miller has said about the future of history:
“Can we go back to normal or do we have to move on to something new? And that’s where June is right now. Has she done something terrible, or what she feels is irredeemable. Can she go back? Or does she have to decide sometimes not You only have to sacrifice part of your life, but do you have to sacrifice your whole life to improve the world for the next generation? And I think it’s not just about changing the president. It’s not just passing a law, as we are realizing. now; some fights you have to continue having, it is a fight that has to continue “
Another key detail for the future of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ will be the possibility of incorporating the late sequel written by Margaret Atwood, ‘The Testaments’, published in 2019. MGM Television and Hulu have already acquired the rights for its adaptation, but we still do not know if it is with the intention of making it part of their main series or, perhaps, in the form of a ‘spin-off’ or a new project. The novel focuses primarily on his two daughters: Hannah, now an adult, who is still in Gilead and joins the Aunts to avoid marriage to a Commander, and on the other hand Nicole, who has grown up in Canada without knowing her true identity. It’s certainly fantastic material for a follow-up beyond June Osborne.
‘The tale of the maid 5’: Who will return to the cast?
Of course, we could not expect another season of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ if it did not have a huge Elisabeth moss. Together with her, the usual ones are expected to return to their respective roles:
Ann dowd like Aunt LydiaYvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy OT Fagbenle as Luke BankoleSamira wiley as Moira StrandMadeline brewer as Janine LindoMax minghella as Nick BlaineAlexis Bledel as Emily MalekAmanda brugel as Rita BlueSam jaeger as Mark TuelloBradley Whitford as Commander Joseph Lawrence
We could also add a new character who has not enjoyed much prominence in season four, but who could continue to appear: it’s about McKenna Grace in the role of Esther Keyes, the rebellious wife who has ended up as a maid.
To who We do not expect to see him back, unless it is through ‘flashbacks’ or hallucinations, it is Joseph Fiennes in the role of Commander Fred Waterford. As we said before, the character has been brutally murdered in the fourth season, ending his journey in history.
