'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 Returning in April, Plus More Hulu Premiere Dates

Elisabeth Moss in The Handmaid's Tale

The Emmy-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.

In addition to season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale, Hulu announced the return of The Path, as well as limited series The Looming Tower and new series Hard Sun.

Moss won for her portrayal of lead character Offred; Ann Dowd won Outstanding Supporting Actress for playing Aunt Lydia; Bruce Miller won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series; and Reed Morano won for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. According to Moss, the show's star and executive producer, "Season two is going to be bad too, really dark".

The show is based on the 1985 Margaret Atwood novel of the same name. The announcement was made alongside a brief teaser video, confirming that season 2 is now in development as well as hinting that there is "no turning back".

"Give up trying to guess what happens. We have no intention of doing anything else than being even more balls to the wall than we were in Season 1".

Hulu also announced more specific premiere dates for several of its original series.

Season 3 of The Path - starring Aaron Paul, Michele Monaghan, and Hugh Dancy - premieres Wednesday, Jan. 17 and will consist of 13 episodes. The Looming Tower is an adaptation of Lawrence Wright's 9/11 exposé, and it arrives February 28, 2018. This spring will also see the premiere of Hard Sun, a new series in which two detectives try to protect their families from an upcoming catastrophic natural disaster.
