The COVID-19 pandemic has affected numerous industries, from the food industry to the music industry, the virus is disrupting everything. Even Hollywood was not left unscathed by the novel coronavirus. As a result of the pandemic, the fourth season of the HULU’s hit series The Handmaid’s Tale has been delayed until 2021. Fortunately for fans, a new teaser for the upcoming season was unveiled today.
The show’s fourth season picks up where season 3 left off after June, played by Elizabeth Moss, is shot while attempting to get the children of Gilead to safety and carried away by fellow handmaidens. The action-loaded teaser showcases June and her allies continuing her rebellion against the totalitarian regime of Gilead. “I can’t rest,” June says in a voiceover narration, “Change never comes easy. This war isn’t going to win itself.” The themes are incredibly timely considering the current socio-political climate in the U.S.
HULU does not yet have a firm 2021 release due to a delay in filming season 4, which takes place in Toronto. The Twitter account for the series posted the teaser as well, writing, “Change never comes easy. Blessed be the squad.”
