YES! RTÉ will be the first to air The Handmaid’s Tale season 2 outside of America

Brilliant.

Unless a TV series is Irish or British, it's usually the case that we have to wait weeks or months to watch a new season.

Many Irish channels don't get the rights to air a show for aaaages, and of course, that's mega frustrating to us.

However, RTÉ has just announced that it will be airing season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale just a day after it airs in the US.

It will be the first broadcaster in Europe to air the second season of the acclaimed drama, with it taking to our TV screens on RTÉ2 on Thursday April 26. You will also be able to live stream it on demand through RTÉ Player.

If you haven't seen the latest trailers for the show, then you should watch them now because they are dark AF.

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 had chills watching it.

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.
