Here’s what Elisabeth Moss thinks will happen in Season 2 of “The Handmaid’s Tale”
If you haven’t finished the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale, you might want to look away — since spoilers are definitely ahead. Since the Hulu show was such a success, Elisabeth Moss already has ideas for the second season, and we’re super curious to hear what she has to say. Playing the incredible lead role of Offred, her character ended things by getting into a black van. What happens after that? We’re dying to find out.
Moss noted in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that since Margaret Atwood’s original novel left a little bit of room for interpretation, she’s glad that the show might finally give literary fans some answers.
"For fans of the book, when that book ends, it’s so frustrating because you’re like “Wait, what the f— happens to her?! You don’t know anything! So for me, as the biggest fan of the book, I’m just excited to see what happens too, I want to know!" Moss said.
She also noted that a big plot may be the news she receives — again, a major spoiler if you’re not yet done with the season.
"The main thing for her is going to be this pregnancy and this baby, bringing this baby into the world and whether or not that’s a good idea, and what she does if it does happen, she said.
In Moss’s eyes, there are also a lot of avenues that the second season could explore.
"There’s the colonies, and you’ve got Moira and Luke now together, and there’s the dynamic of Serena and Offred having this baby between them," she noted.
It sounds like they have more than enough material to work with. For us, we’ll be waiting patiently to watch it through Hulu.
