With the release of the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale just around the corner, fans of the show will be delighted to learn that the show has been revamped for what the rumor mill calls the show’s final season. Since its inception in 2016 by Bruce Miller, the show has been running strongly with consecutive acclaimed seasons leading to multiple Emmy Award nominations and wins.
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Cast
Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale is set to reprise the ever-great Elizabeth Moss as June Osborne. Moss is also said to have a lot more creative leeway and also reportedly has government commitments in her contract. The actress dropped the main news in December 2020, well before the release of Season 4. The show reportedly went into production in January earlier this year and will bring back most of the ensemble with the future of some still in the dark grope not to further spoil some of the events in the yet to be released season 4.
Returning members include JOseph Fiennes as Fred Waterford, Madeline Brewer as Janine, Alexis Bledel as Emily, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy Waterford, Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia. Other members yet to confirm their involvement include Olatunde Olateju Olaolorun “OT” Fagbenle as Luke, Max Minghella as Nick, Samira Wiley as Moira, Bradley Whitford as Commander Lawrence and Amanda Brugel as Rita. Fan favorite Sam Jaeger is expected to return as Mark Tuello and has dropped hints on his Instagram.
The spin-off of the will
According to reports, in addition to the inevitable season 5, Bruce Miller is also pushing for a spin-off series of The Handmaid’s Tale entitled “The Testament,” based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name. The spin-off is rumored to begin production alongside Season 5, with Bruce Miller overseeing it as producer and lead writer.
The release date of The Handmaid’s Tale season 5
Production of The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 is expected to end in late 2021 and is expected to be released on April 26, 2022, on the show’s sixth anniversary.
