Season 6 of ‘The Handmaid’s Story’ Will Be Its Final, Right here’s What We Know So Far
If you happen to’ve caught with The Handmaid’s Tale because it first premiered, then enable me to formally provide you with a gold star, as a result of it’s been no straightforward feat. The final five-and-half years have been full of hard-to-watch-yet-can’t-look-away episodes sandwiched by many, many months of ready for brand spanking new content material to drop. And let me inform ya, it’s been a journey!
Season 5 is lastly airing this fall and certain, some folks could say it is best to simply reside within the second and benefit from the episodes you’re getting proper now, however that’s sadly not how my mind works. I’m out right here already questioning if there’s going to be a season 6. And in the event you’re questioning the identical factor, then you definately’ve come to the correct place. Right here’s every little thing we all know up to now a few sixth season of The Handmaid’s Story.
First issues first, will there be a season 6?
Drumroll please…YES! The present was formally renewed for a sixth season forward of the season 5 premiere, per Digital Spy. In an announcement, creator, showrunner, and government producer Bruce Miller mentioned, “It has been a real honor to inform the story of Margaret Atwood’s groundbreaking novel and the chillingly related world, and we’re thrilled to convey viewers a sixth and ultimate season of The Handmaid’s Story.” This announcement means they’ll must lastly convey June’s story to a detailed, which brings us to…
What’s going to season 6 be about?
At this level, we don’t even know the way season 5 will finish so it’s a bit tough to say, however there are some things the present might want to wrap up both this season or subsequent. An incomplete record is as follows: Is Gilead’s regime going to unfold to different nations (’trigger it definitely seems prefer it has some help in Canada)? Or will it will definitely come crashing down? Will Nick and Commander Lawrence ever be discovered for serving to June? And most significantly, Will June and Luke ever get Hannah again?
Clearly the present is predicated on Margaret Atwood’s e book, however at this level within the sequence, it’s gone completely past what Atwood wrote, so there’s no clear method to suss out particular spoilers. BUT if the present writers keep true to the e book there’s one main occasion we are able to count on to occur: Gilead will fall. The e book ends with Offred (the title June isn’t truly used for her within the e book) having her account of dwelling as a handmaid recorded onto cassette tapes which can be used a few years later by historians to review “the Gilead Interval.” So we’ve bought some hope, y’all!
What forged members shall be in season 6?
On the price the present goes killing off characters prefer it’s Sport of Thrones, it’s actually exhausting to say who will make it via to season 6 at this level. We could be all however sure that June (performed by Elisabeth Moss) shall be there, and sure Serena Pleasure (performed by Yvonne Strahovski) because the stress between these two is what makes the present go spherical. However apart from that, it’s completely up within the air. We all know that Alexis Bledel bowed out for season 5, however since her character, Emily, wasn’t killed off, there’s nonetheless an opportunity she may come again for the ultimate season.
When will season 6 air?
There’s no official launch date. Though The Handmaid’s Story sometimes premieres earlier within the yr, like April or June, season 5 threw us for a loop with a September air date, so which month season 6 will come out stays to be seen.
