It is too soon to detect or forecast what season 5 will be based upon and what incidents & potlucks will occupy center stage. Still, as far as it can be foretold, season 5 is likely to deal with the follow-up events of June’s decisions and deeds and how they will impact her and her husband and their relationship. It can also touch upon her dynamic and the effects of her choices on her best friend’s life.
Recap of Season 4
A cosmic shift in the plotline characterized the season; the season dealt with Fred and Serena’s relationship, themes of freedom, love or contractual relationship, betrayal by the law, shocking and brutal revenge taken by June as the season concludes with June, and among of handmaids killing Waterford and hanging his body on a wall, as is done Gilead.
Hulu hasn’t put out a conformed date; the show was renewed for a fifth season in December 2020; tracing recent updates, the Handmaid’s Tale season 5 began filming in February 2022, so the season 5 will not see a release indeed up till 2023.
The show commenced filming in the initial half of 2022; there hasn’t been a trailer for season 5.
Number of Episodes
There hasn’t been any announcement about the number of episodes season 5 will have. The show’s first season consisted of 13 episodes, and seasons 2, 3 & 4 had ten episodes, so season 5 is likely to be composed of 10 or more attacks; there is no official confirmation yet.
What to Expect?
We can expect significant changes, like June leaving her home in Canada, dealing with Fred’s end, keeping her daughter Hannah safe and sound while gathering more strength & courage to fight against the Gilead regime, saving Janine & exacting cruel revenge on Serena.
Most cast members are expected to reprise their roles except Alexis Bledel as Emily. The show will have Elizabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Max Minghella, Ann Dowd, Madelin Brewer, and Sydney Sweeney.
