 “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”

Firstly, I would like to inform you all that I am completely aware of how excited you all are to watch Handmaid’s Tale season 4. However, there is a little bit of disappointment for the binge-watchers.

Handmaid’s Tale season 4 release date: Early 2021

As we have received some insights from our sources in Hulu, the production of Handmaid’s Tale season 4 will begin in March 2020 which clearly states that there is no way it will be aired before the early months of 2021.

Why there is a delay in Handmaid’s Tale season 4?

The production of season 4 has already been delayed for so long which is definitely putting a lot of pressure on Hulu to start the production of Season 4 as early as possible.

Since the last year when Hulu has released the statistics about how rapidly the viewers have almost doubled on the premiere of season 2 as compared to season 1.

Handmaid’s Tale has gained a lot of recognition and popularity in the past couple of years which demands an outstanding screenplay in season 4 and it is also putting a lot of pressure on Hulu’s team to make the best out of season 4.

As Hallam-Martin Said:

“They’re already writing so it’s gonna take a while to act out the next season, and then we have Margaret Atwood’s new book coming along — The Testaments

“That will dictate a lot of what happens in the next season and we’ll see where we go with The Testaments.”

But I think we want to keep the bar high, and it would not be a bad thing to leave the audience wanting more and and and then we could, we could ideally shift into The Testaments.



The tweet from Handmaid’s Tale Twitter account just after the season 3 finale aired did the announcement of season 4.

“You did this, Resistors. Praise be. Season 4 of The #HandmaidsTale is happening!”

Handmaid’s Tale season 4 Cast: June (Elisabeth Moss) will be back

In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Bruce Miller said that:

It’ll always stay in June’s story. The show is all from June’s point of view – all of it, including scenes with other people

Those are scenes where either she knows those people well enough to piece together what would have happened, or at some point afterward, someone who was there told her what happened. Every single thing we see is something she either knows or would know because she’s telling us this story.

My intention is that the show will always be in June’s point of view. Part of what makes the show so scary is that limited perspective.

In a recent interview with Vulture, Elisabeth Moss also spoke about the criticism from the critics believing that June should have died long ago. She said:

Bitch is a cat who has had nine f**king lives. She 100 percent probably should be dead. But also – she’s the lead character, what do you want us to do?”

“Season three was like, Okay, okay, I know we’re pushing it, I know… We all agree it’s time to take it somewhere else. She can’t go back [to Gilead].”

Handmaid’s Tale season 4 plot: The New Twist!

In a recent interview on Youtube channel Lubiie, Bruce said that he has done a couple of changes but the main point he made it was:

” It is not about the book, we are faithful to the book but the book works as a story.”

That states the story will be going according to the book.

However, the two major changes he mentioned are:

Making Sarrena and commander younger.”

They thought about it carefully and they felt like, the dynamic between two characters will be richer and have a long story to narrate on the screenplay.

He also mentioned:

If Serena was a point of life where she was supposed to have a trail, suppose to thinking back into the past.”

Bruce explained how hard it to showcase a book on television as there is a whole different world on television comparing on paper.

On paper, we don’t notice small things but on televisions, we see every small thing.


Most of the story in season 4 can be expected to go according to the book as Bruce mentioned above, he is faithful to the book and the book actually works as a story.

The small scenes mentioned in the book can be modified or more elaborated cause on paper it a sentence and on television its a screenplay.

I hope this article will help you well regarding all your questions about season 4.
