Why is it so long between seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale? Ugh.

The writer of the show are SUPER good at leaving each season in a cliffhanger — but then we have to wait FOREVER to find out what happens!


Last we knew, Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale was due to be released in Fall of 2020.

I was hoping we would get it sooner, since it usually premieres in the late spring or early summer. But alas, not this season.

Production started later than usual, and then was shut down — you know, the whole social distancing thing.

The show hasn’t announced a change to when it will be released, and we are all HOPING it will still premiere in the fall as planned.


When we left June — I’m about to drop some spoilers — she was bleeding out in the middle of the woods, but her fellow handmaids came to rescue her, and carry her safely to — well, we don’t know where.


The Waterfords had been arrested in Canada — and we JUST found out Serena will NOT have immunity. Ha! Take that, Serena!

Commander Lawrence ended up NOT jumping on the plane to safety, but decided to stay in Gilead, and maybe help fix what he started.


Nick. Dear goodness. What the heck is happening with Nick? I don’t even know. If he’s bad, I’ll be so sad.

Don’t worry, though, according to TV Guide, we will learn more about Nick’s backstory, and what is going down with him.


Here’s the best news of all:

(Season 4) probably won’t be the final seasonExecutive producer Warren Littlefield told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that they are not writing Season 4 as if it’s the final season — “We have not planned Season 4 to be the end — “We don’t see ending it in [Season 4], and I can honestly say to you, we don’t have a definitive out. But I think we want to keep the bar high, and it would not be a bad thing to leave the audience wanting more, and then we could ideally shift into The Testaments (The writer of the book’s follow up to The Handmaid’s Tale).

TV Guide

So, to sum up — PLEASE let us still be able to catch the new season in the Fall! And also, don’t make Nick a bad guy. Please and Thank you. Blessed be the fruit.
