'The Handmaid's Tale' Unearths Gruesome First-Look Photos of Season 2

Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.

In addition, The Handmaid's Tale season one earned three Golden Globe nominations, winning in the Best Television Series - Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama (Elisabeth Moss) categories.

"The biggest barrier of season 2 was season 1", showrunner Bruce Miller tells EW. Atwood did, however, have some input about the direction as a consulting producer. "You sort of intimidate yourself". You can try, but you won't do it. Season two will premiere on Hulu in April 2018. But most intriguingly is our first look at the Colonies, above, the contaminated lands left beyond the "safety" of Gilead, where exiled citizens and escapees have fled to.


One of the sneak peek pictures shows the funeral of one of the handmaids, a scene Miller is particularly proud of. "Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling", says Miller, who adds that production benefited from real snow on set in Canada. He continues, "These scenes that are so attractive, while set in such a awful place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy". "I literally read the scripts and I think, 'Oh my god.' The ideas are genius and so unpredictable and harrowing", she said.

In a press release revealing our first look at the new season, Hulu teased that season 2 is set to focus on Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the horrors of Gilead.
