Blessed be a premiere date for “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
Hulu announced Sunday that Season 2 of its acclaimed drama will premiere April 25 with two new episodes. And it’s moderation from there, with Hulu sticking with its weekly release strategy and rolling out subsequent episodes every Wednesday.
The first season of the drama, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, ended with Offred (Elisabeth Moss) pregnant and being whisked away in a van — her future uncertain. In turn, a central theme of the 13-episode second season, which moves past its source material, will be motherhood, with Offred determined to shield her future child from the horrors of Gilead.
