The Handmaid’s tale Season 5: Read what we know so far

Many people are already honestly wondering when enough episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 will air after the season’s vicious conaclusion. We’re here for you. An official fifth season has already been confirmed. The Hulu blockbuster series The Handmaid’s Tale is officially coming for the fifth season, which is a major boost for supporters.

While the fourth season of the show only finished this week, fans will be comforted by the fact that there will be more after this fresh batch of ten episodes. Without any need to fret about never learning what happened to Gilead’s residents, escapees and refugees. In actuality, the cast announced that Season 5 would be taking place in an Instagram video in December 2020, before Season 4 even premiered. 

Release date

Season four of The Handmaid’s Tale premiered on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on Sunday, June 20, 2021, so we’ll have to travel long distances for season 5.

For US audiences, the series premieres sooner and on Hulu, but don’t anticipate the fifth season to debut before spring 2022 at the least.

The first three episodes of season four were released a day ahead on the Disney-owned streaming service in an unexpected gesture for fans, and we may imagine something identical for season five.

Must Check: Modern love Season 2: Release date


Fred Waterford, played by Joseph Fiennes, will not be returning, as he was executed by June and her fellow runaway handmaids at the end of season 4 for his misdeeds. Jeananne Goossen as Aunt Ruth was a new regular addition to the Aunts this season. It remains to be known if or not the new ones will appear in the following season. The classic book doesn’t maintain enough indications in form of additional protagonists we would see in the coming years, as the series has taken its personal route since season 2.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 is likely to welcome again the core of the series’s big characters; here’s everyone we think we’ll find:

  • Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne
  • Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia
  • Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy 
  • O.T Fagbenle as Luke Bankole
  • Alexis Bledel as Emily Malek
  • Amanda Brugel as Rita Blue
  • Sam Jaeger as Mark Tuello
  • Bradley Whitford as Commander Joseph Lawrence
  • Samira Wiley as Moira Strand
  • Madeline Brewer as Janine Lindo
  • Max Minghella as Nick Blaine


The end of season 4 was an emotional ride. Things went from serenity to wild in just a matter of time. We saw  Serena make preparations to relax in Canada with her husband, Commander Fred Waterford, in season 4 episode 10 of The Handmaid’s Tale, “The Wilderness’ ‘.  Fred agreed to a plead bargain to ensure his and Serena’s safety. Serena, meantime, intends to put their tumultuous lawful past beyond themselves to raise their baby.

Now here’s how Serena’s future was intended to be put in darkness.  Mark Tuello (Sam Jaeger) transfers Fred off to Gilead in lieu of a captive swap during the season, unknown to Serena. June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss) and other former Handmaids then murder Fred.


Things take a horrible turn when Fred’s finger and wedding ring are dispatched to Serena out the front of her locked room. Serena’s destiny in Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale remains undetermined due to Fred’s murder, as her independence and stability were dependent on his plea bargain. 

Because she is self-serving, Serena will always pick the opportunity that rewards her. Anyone but herself is the only person she has any loyalty to. According to Miller, Serena will always make the “logical” choice and will not seek asylum in the United States. 

Among its many qualities, Handmaid is disturbing and evocative as well as fallible and glorious. But above all, it is still relatable today.” It’s brutal, and usually directed at women, but it’s also a lot of fun and at the same time an eye-opener. It will be intriguing to see how cruel handmaid’s tale season 5 is in terms of emotional and relevant drama.
