After bringing in nearly universally rave reviews and its series premiere becoming the most watched debut of all time on Hulu, the streamer wasted no time in announcing that The Handmaid’s Tale will definitely be back in 2018.
Hulu head of content Craig Erwich made the following statement:
“The response we’ve seen to The Handmaid’s Tale in just one week since its premiere has been absolutely incredible. It has been an honor to work with this talented team of cast and creators to develop a series that has struck such a chord with audiences across the country. As we continue to expand our strong slate of original programming, The Handmaid’s Tale is exactly the type of gripping and thought-provoking storytelling we want to bring to viewers. We can’t wait to explore the world of Gilead and continue Margaret’s vision with another season on Hulu.”
And, no, we can’t wait either even though we’re hardly into just four episodes of Season One! Blessed be the fruit!
