The latest Handmaid's Tale season 2 trailer is dark AF

Season 2 is fast approaching.

It's safe to say that The Handmaid's Tale was one of the stand-out TV shows of last year.

The show is based on the novel of the same name and follows the story of a near future, where human fertility rates collapse as a result of sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution.

With this chaos in place, the totalitarian government, Gilead, is established to rule in the former United States in the aftermath of a civil war.

It's extremely dark and heartbreaking as we see the main character June being torn away from her family and made have sex with those in power in order to produce.

She is basically a sex slave, and has no rights of her own.

Well, now the second trailer for the second season has been released, and it looks to be even darker than the last series.

Elizabeth Moss told The Pool last month that it "is going to be bad too, really dark – it's going to get worse."

Showrunner Bruce Miller further told EW: "The things you are seeing blooming in Offred are not going to go away. Her spirit of rebellion and her careful march away from being a well-behaved handmaid and making some trouble is where the season is rolling towards."

The new series will debut on Hulu on April 25, and honestly, we can't wait to get back into it.
