The Handmaid’s Tale has had five seasons since its debut, and a sixth and final season is currently being discussed. For the second to last season, Elisabeth Moss will reprise her role as June Osborne. The discussion of physical autonomy is still being stoked by “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which has been linked to numerous political demonstrations like The Women’s March. Those who first read Margaret Atwood’s book or watched the television adaptation may be wondering how to watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5, as well as when and how many new episodes will air.
On September 14, 2022, the fifth season of the dystopian television series made its global debut. You can view the first two episodes online. Much like with prior seasons, the complete first season of The Handmaid’s Tale is available to stream on Hulu for $7 for the ad-supported tier. The tier with no ads is $13 per month. The remaining episodes will air each week on Wednesday nights until the final one premieres on November 9 after the first two episodes debut on September 14.
Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne and Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy Waterford will both make a triumphant return in the dystopian series’ fifth episode. Along with Moss and Strahovski, other actors like Ann Dowd (Aunt Lydia Clements), O-T Fagbenle (Luke Bankole), Samira Wiley (Moira Strand), and Bradley Whitford (Joseph Lawrence) return. Additionally, Madeline Brewer (Janine Lindo) and Max Minghella (Nick Blaine) will make a comeback.
The official synopsis of the series’ fifth season is as follows : “June faces consequences for killing Commander Waterford while struggling to redefine her identity and purpose. The widowed Serena attempts to raise her profile in Toronto as Gilead’s influence creeps into Canada. Commander Lawrence works with Nick and Aunt Lydia as he tries to reform Gilead and rise in power.
