OK, The New Season Of "The Handmaid's Tale" Looks Terrifying

Take Five  Hulu		Elisabeth Moss as Offred

Fresh off big wins at the Golden Globes and the Critics' Choice Awards, Hulu's dystopian drama is gearing up for its sophomore run, and these first-look photos give us a glimpse of what's next for Offred (Emmy victor Elisabeth Moss) and her fellow handmaids. Understandably, following up such an acclaimed run can feel a bit daunting.

Per Hulu's official synopsis, Season 2 is "shaped by Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead".

"Margaret and I had started to talk about the shape of season 2 halfway through the first", Miller told EW. You can check out some additional photos from season two, courtesy of Hulu, below. Miller protests. "I just want the viewers to experience it for themselves!"

The second photo shows a funeral in Gilead attended by Handmaids, which means it might be a funeral for one of their own. Where do you think season two is heading, considering we've moved past Atwood's original source material from her novel?

"Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling".

HMT showrunner Bruce Miller gushed about working with Moss, saying, "Lizzie is such an incredible partner on this with me".

The first images from The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 have been released, and they are every bit as lovely and frightening and visually stunning as you'd hope. The first images from season 2 hint at what will happen to Elisabeth Moss' June, and where her rebellious actions have left her fellow Handmaids.
