The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 trailer dropped during the Oscars ceremony and the fight for Gilead is officially on, but at what cost?
Leading character June, played by Elisabeth Moss, is heard making a declaration to free the women of the country.
But as she does so, every woman we see continues to be imprisoned, chained and abused by those who ‘own’ them in this gritty dystopia.
‘My name is June Osbourne. Mine is just one voice, countless others remain unheard,’ she said.
‘Women imprisoned by men who can never be heard again. It is for those women, I ask for justice.’
In the new series, June’s fight to free Gilead continues, but the synopsis warns that it may come at a price for our leading heroine.

It reads: ‘The risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges, and her desire for justice and revenge threaten to consume her and destroy her most cherished relationships.’
The series is an extension of the world written by Margaret Attwood in her classic novel of the same name.

She has since published a sequel, The Testaments, but by the point of release the TV series surpassed what she had written.
Season four will launch with three episodes this Wednesday, followed by weekly installments.
As well as this, season five has already been given the go-ahead.
Speaking to Deadline in February, showrunner Bruce Miller revealed that he also planned to continue for a while yet, and said: ‘As long as Lizzie will do this with me, I’ll keep going.
‘There’s a lot of life in this story. I’m certainly fascinated by what happens in The Testaments and if that’s going to be part of our future, that’s a bigger question.’
The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 launches on April 28 on Hulu, with a UK release date not yet confirmed.
