First Photos of 'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 Tease Bloody Offred
There will be blood on Season 2 of "The Handmaid's Tale."
Entertainment Weekly posted the first three images from the second season of Hulu's Golden Globe-winning drama, which is breaking new story ground as it moves past the events of Margaret Atwood's novel.
The first photo hints at a bloody outcome for Offred (Elisabeth Moss), who was last seen being taken into custody — while pregnant. Offred aka June is standing, with a defiant expression. Her neck and camisole are drenched in blood. But is it hers? Or somebody else's?
Showrunner Bruce Miller told EW that Season 2 will build out the world around Gilead and explore the lives of refugees (like Samira Wiley's Moira, who escaped to Canada) and people exiled to the Colonies, which is depicted below as a harsh, unforgiving environment:
Miller also teased a scene set during a handmaid's funeral. "Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling," he said. "These scenes that are so beautiful, while set in such a terrible place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy."
"The Handmaid's Tale" Season 2 premieres in April on Hulu.
