After seasons 2’s finale of The Handmaid’s Tale, we were left with so many unanswered questions about June and the state of Gilead. Although, we still don’t have answers to any of these pressing questions, we did get a pretty solid teaser during the Super Bowl this month. The teaser showcased some major changes that would be taking place in June’s life. Let’s not forget the small clip of June walking around in a Martha’s uniform!
Hulu’s phenomenal producers seem to be having a wonderful time playing with our emotions. We’re aren’t sure if it was an undercover disguise, or if June finally escaped and has a new identity as a Martha.
The show is set to make its comeback in June! Hulu dropped a little clip on Instagram letting fans know that the show will return on June 5th, 2019. Not only did they drop the date, but they gave us a fiery surprise. Does this mean that Gilead is going to be burnt to the ground? Will June start a massive arsonic revolution amongst the Handmaids? We can’t wait for answers!
The only downside to this—and a huge catch—is that Hulu is only releasing the first three episodes on June 5th. After that, a new episode will come out every Wednesday to stream. In my opinion, that’s bullsh*t. One of the reasons that I cut my chord with cable was if I wanted to watch a series then I could watch the entire thing in one shot. Come on Hulu, why are you trying to invade my binge-watching habits? This isn’t fair!
Additionally, there will only be 13 episodes of the season. However, producers say that they’ve worked hard to make sure fans are satisfied with the events that transpire in Gilead. Hulu executive Craig Erwich said at the Television Critics Association press tour this week that the first two episodes of the upcoming season are “spectacular.”
