The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Trailer: Is This What Freedom Looks Like?

at .

The handmaids will rise up. 

That appears to be the big message from the official trailer for The Handmaid's Tale Season 2. 

As you may recall, The Handmaid's Tale Season 1 concluded with June being bundled into the back of a van and facing an uncertain fate.

According to Hulu, the second season will be "shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia." 

"In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth."

The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into a lot of new locations, and one of them is The Colonies which we will be traveling two on The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 2. 

Yes, that means we will be getting to see what happened next for Emily and Janine who found themselves on the outs with the new system in Gilead.

The Handmaid's Tale Quotes

Now I'm awake to the world. I was asleep before. That's how we let it happen. When they slaughtered Congress, we didn't wake up. When they blamed terrorists and suspended the Consitution, we didn't wake up then, either. Nothing changes instantaneously. In a gradually heating bathtub, you'd be boiled to death before you knew it.


A priest, a doctor, a gay man. I think I heard that joke once. This wasn't the punchline.
