The new Handmaid's Tale promo has us both excited and terrified for season two

It’s about to get a whole lot worse.

The Handmaid’s Tale was one of the stand-out shows from 2017 for many, winning awards across the board and gaining huge praise from critics and viewers alike.

After a thrilling premiere season, the show is now preparing to release an even more intense second season, and going by the new trailer we’re in for a rough ride.

"Is this what freedom looks like?" captioned the post shared by the makers of the show and we already have chills.

Showrunner Bruce Miller has promised that season two will be even more intense than the first and that fans should expect some terrifying twists and turns along the way.

It will explore the world of Gilead even further and will also follow Alexis Bledel’s Emily into a whole new world – the colonies.

Yes, we heard a lot about it in season one but now we’re seeing our first glimpse into that world in the most recent trailer.


And if that doesn’t have you excited, Elisabeth Moss’ recent comments on the next season surely will.

“There is literally no way that anyone can guess what happens.

"You can try, but you won’t do it.”

The Handmaid’s Tale second season will return to Hulu on April, 25, although no word yet on when it will appear on Irish screens.
