When Is Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Releasing?

Handmaid's Tale season 5

Gilead is a horrible and gloomy place to visit, and we are delighted to bring some good news to the fans about the return of Handmaid’s Tale season 5.

Even before the release of season 4, Bruce Miller, in an interview, revealed about the renewal of the show because of fans’ support.

Here is everything you should know about Handmaid’s Tale season 5 release date, cast, trailer, and storyline. 

The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 release date 

Hulu has not announced any official The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 release date yet. The news of renewal was finally announced in December 2020 during the Disney Investor Day presentation, months before the premiere of season 4.

The first three seasons of the Handmaid’s Tale were released in the gap of one year: April 2017, April 2018, June 2019. The release of Handmaid’s Tale season 4 was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Productions have started, but the filming is a little slow due to adherent to safety and health protocols. According to our speculation, the release date for Handmaid’s Tale season 5 could be anywhere in April 2022. 

The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 episodes

The announcement of Hulu renewal did not release any information about how many episodes will be in Handmaid’s Tale season 5. Season 1 and season 4 have a total of 10 episodes, while seasons 2 and 3 have 13 episodes. 

We assume Handmaid’s Tale season 5 may have ten episodes since the pandemic has caused delays and a slowdown in production.

Like we know, Gilead of Handmaid’s Tale is not a safe place to be, and because Canada has fled, that does not mean it is secure for everyone else. Most of the major actors will be returning in Handmaid’s Tale season 5.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 plot

At the moment, there are very details about The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 plot. However, we can assume that the story will continue to test June’s trauma after her escape from Gilead. 

The show will keep on continuing until Elisabeth Moss commits to Bruce Miller. We cannot get a Handmaid’s Tale season 5 trailer until close to the release date of the show.
