The Handmaid's Tale editor explains how season four will differ from the others

It'll probably be a while yet before we see it though.

The Handmaid's Tale series editor has explained how the show's upcoming fourth season will differ from those that have gone before it.

Wendy Hallam-Martin said that Margaret Atwood's latest literary offering, The Testaments, is going to feature heavily in the new season, most likely putting to rest the rumours surrounding a potential spin-off show.

She said that although production isn't due to start on the new season until next year, she believes it will be influenced heavily by the new book.

“They’re already writing so it’s gonna take a while to act out the next season, and then we have Margaret Atwood’s new book coming along, The Testaments," she told Mayday's The Handmaid's Tale podcast.

"That will dictate a lot of what happens in the next season and we’ll see where we go with The Testaments!

Very interesting, indeed.

The 2020 production date means that it's fairly unlikely that we're going to find out what happens to June, Waterford, Luke and the rest of them any time soon.

Sure look, at least we've got the new book - and the rest of season three if you've yet to watch it.
