Blessed be the fruit. The Handmaid’s Tale is returning for a second season. We can hardly wait to see what happens next to Offred (a role that scored Elisabeth Moss an Emmy nomination — just one of 13 for the series) in the disturbing dystopian future of the hit Netflix series. Also, we’re still REALLY hoping that Drake shows up in Season 2.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Moss expressed how thrilled she was by the response to The Handmaid’s Tale, and hinted at what comes next for Offred.
Of course, she had to be vague to avoid leaking spoilers. But she did drop some intriguing tidbits about what we can expect upon our return to Gilead.
She seems almost excited as we are!
All we have to say is hell. Freaking. Yes.
On a more serious note, Moss also took some time to discuss the disturbing real-world parallels of the show.
Remember, Season 1 was filmed before the 2016 presidential election. She talked about how art can provide a mirror, and start important conversations about serious topics. That’s something we need more now than ever.
Praise be. We feel the exact same way and are so thankful that The Handmaid’s Tale can help us process troubling real-world news during difficult times. Is it time for Season 2 yet?!
