The Handmaid’s Tale renewed for fourth season

The most popular series on Hulu, The Handmaid’s Tale, has been renewed for a fourth season, while on its Season 3 run that will conclude until August 14th. The news of the renewal was announced at the Television Critic Awards, then later on social media.

The show has also been an enormously relevant drama and a massive critical hit for Hulu. Based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, this series is set in Gilead, a totalitarian society in what used to be part of the United States.

Created by Bruce Miller, The Handmaid’s Tale became the first streaming show to win a best series Primetime Emmy.  Its first season won eight Emmy Awards, including drama series and actress in a drama series, bagged by Elisabeth Moss, along with a slew of other accolades.

In 2018, it won three Primetime Emmys. With only three episodes eligible for the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards, The Handmaid’s Tale still netted 11 nominations, the most for a Hulu program ever nominated.

The series stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle, Amanda Brugel and Bradley Whitford.

The Hulu show – which is produced by MGM Television – is executive produced by Bruce Miller, Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, Ilene Chaiken, Eric Tuchman, John Weber, Sheila Hockin, Frank Siracusa and Moss.
