Handmaid's Tale Season 1 & 2 is a gripping drama set in a disturbing future.Based on Margaret Atwood's award-winning, best-selling novel, The Handmaid's Tale is set in the future dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society located in the former United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarised 'return to traditional values'.
As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, belonging to the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.
The Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. 'Gilead is within you' is a favourite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against - or succumb to - this dark truth.
