Hulu has released The Handmaid's Tale season 4 trailer. Even though the highly anticipated fourth season is being delayed, the trailer promises, "we're just getting started." Elisabeth Moss had a bit of a rough time at the end of season 3, to put it lightly, but she is far from done fighting. "I can't rest," June says in voice-over. "Change never comes easy. This war isn't going to win itself." From there, we're treated to a lot of action and teases for something that we won't be seeing for a long time.
The Handmaid's Tale season 3 ended with June in the care of other handmaids after getting shot. She helped numerous girls escape the Gilead, but there is still a lot more she needs to accomplish. Sadly, while this season 4 trailer is welcomed and great news, it comes right after we learned that Hulu won't be premiering new episodes until next year, which seemed inevitable up until their announcement. Just about everything in the entertainment business came to a screeching halt earlier this year, due to the world's current state of affairs.
The Handmaid's Tale season 4 was only able to get about two weeks into production before it was forced to shut down. Elisabeth Moss recently revealed that they, "didn't get a lot in the can" in terms of finished footage. The aim was to have the highly successful Hulu show premiere in the fall, but that quickly became in impossibility. Hulu is not alone as current events have pretty much stopped anything new from seeing the light of day, especially when it comes to the big screen side of things.
As for when production on The Handmaid's Tale season 4 will start up again, that is unclear. But, it doesn't sound like the cast and crew are in a very big rush to get back to work. Elisabeth Moss says, "We want to go back to work because families have people to support and rent they need to pay, but at the same time no human's life is worth a TV show." The whole industry is trying to figure out that balance at the moment. "We're just trying to figure out how to do it safely for everybody," she concludes.
Showrunner Bruce Miller recently spoke about what fans can expect when The Handmaid's Tale season 4 debuts. "You don't want to be setting up season 4 in season 3. Audiences smell that coming," he said. The showrunner depends on his writer's room to come up with the goods. So far, they have been doing so and they have a bit more extra time to come up with some more ideas during this break.
