The Handmaid's Tale sequel to become TV series
Blessed be the fruit.
US-only streaming site Hulu has announced they’re to adapt the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale into a TV show.
Titled The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly-anticipated follow up novel is due for release on 10th September 2019.
The platform is currently involved in talks with MGM and showrunner Bruce Miller on how to best develop it.
It’s not known whether it’ll tie directly into this current TV series or stand on its own as a separate entity.
Set 15 years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale, The Testaments explores the backstory and current life of Aunt Lydia as well as those of two teenage girls Agnes and Daisy.
As to be expected from a project at such an early stage, an official cast, director or release date have yet to be announced.
The Handmaid’s Tale recently wrapped up its critically-acclaimed third season which saw June/Offred (Elisabeth Moss) continue to rise up against the Gilead regime.
As Hulu isn’t available in the UK, it’s thought that The Testaments will also air on Channel 4.
The first two series of The Handmaid’s Tale are available to stream on NOW TV.
