Soon after the shocking events of the Season three finale of The Handmaid’s Tale, there are so lots of balls left up in the air (each in Gilead and in Canada) that the wait for Season four is going to look specifically extended.

When we final saw June (Elisabeth Moss), she was in dire straights, potentially bleeding out from a gunshot wound. She did, nonetheless, handle to smuggle more than 100 kids out of Gilead, who have been later greeted at a Canadian airport by Moira (Samira Wiley) and Luke (O-T Fagbenle). As for the Waterfords, their troubles look to have only just gotten began as they await trial for their war crimes thanks to Serena’s (Yvonne Strahovski) shady deal to be in infant Nicole’s life.

The Handmaid’s Tale spoilers are especially difficult to come by (specifically with Season four so far off), but here’s every little thing we know about what is coming down the pipeline subsequent season…

It will most likely debut in 2020. Even though the show was renewed for Season four just weeks ahead of its Season three finale, there was no anticipated release schedule incorporated in the renewal news. Showrunner Bruce Miller not too long ago told Television Guide that The Handmaid’s Tale writers’ space would open for Season four on Aug. 12, so there is nonetheless a extended way to go ahead of new episodes go from the web page to the screen.

June is almost certainly alive. Even though Miller would not confirm irrespective of whether or not June will survive her gunshot wound, he did say, “We are following June, and June lives in Gilead, and Gilead is not a good spot, and it will continue to be not a good spot. And we attempt to be really realistic about what would almost certainly come about and how would points function, so more than the break we’ve talked to the U.N. and we’ve talked about what takes place to rebels in nations like this, so we’re parsing by means of the possibilities.” If they are parsing by means of repercussions for June’s actions, we can only assume she’ll be alive to endure these consequences.

We’ll see an unstable Gilead. Even though Gilead’s regime has under no circumstances been especially steady, we’ll continue to see these in energy wobble and waver in the aftermath of this mass exodus of kids. “It really is certainly sort of hitting them,” Miller told Television Guide. “It really is their cause for their existence — reproduction. So when you get started taking away these kids, I assume it really is going to make Gilead really angry.

We have not observed the final of Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford). In a surprising twist, Commander Lawrence decided to keep behind in Gilead to attempt to clean up the mess he’d brought on rather than escaping to Canada like he planned. Even though absolutely nothing is set in stone but, Miller assured Television Guide that he has every single want to bring Commander Lawrence back for far more in Season four.

We’ll discover far more about Nick’s (Max Minghella) previous. Even though Nick’s previous and his part in founding Gilead have been in the plans for Season three, timing just did not permit the writers the chance to discover that storyline. No will need to be concerned although, that backstory is certainly on tap for Season four.

The Waterfords are in hot water. Fred (Joseph Fiennes) and Serena have been each facing criminal trials for war crimes (in spite of Serena believing she’d gained immunity by handing Fred more than), and unless Gilead pulls off a miraculous extradition, we’ll almost certainly be heading straight for their trials in Season four. Never be concerned if you are conflicted about Serena’s fate, although, as Miller warns you need to certainly count on to keep on the fence exactly where she’s concerned.

“She does in some cases do points that we assume are really understandable and noble and even likable,” Miller mentioned. “And then she does so lots of horrible points. She has so substantially to answer for, and now she’s in a position to answer for the horrible points.”

Seasons 1-three of The Handmaid’s Tale are at present streaming on Hulu.
