Season five of Hulu’s Emmy-winning The Handmaid’s Tale picks up where season four left off, after former handmaid June, also known as Offred, (Elisabeth Moss) took her violent revenge on her former captor, Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes).
Now his pregnant wife, Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) is left widowed and martyred, rising even higher through the stringent society of Gilead as a symbol of fertility and sacrifice, giving her far more power than before her husband’s death. And Serena has vengeance on her mind.
The series also stars Bradley Whitford, Yvonne Strahovski, Max Minghella, O-T Fagbenle, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd, Madeline Brewer, Amanda Brugel and Sam Jaeger.
It’s produced by MGM Television and executive produced by Bruce Miller, Warren Littlefield, Moss, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, Eric Tuchman, Yahlin Chang, Rachel Shukert, Sheila Hockin, John Weber, Frank Siracusa, Steve Stark and Kim Todd.
Season five of The Handmaid’s Tale premieres Wednesday, September 14 on Hulu.
