The Handmaid's Tale season 5: Everything we know so far

The Handmaid's Tale will officially return for a fifth season, and it may be the series' final installment, according to Hulu. Here is everything you need to know about the new season, including when it's expected to arrive, who might come back to reprise their roles, and more. There are no trailers yet, and detail are admittedly thin, but Pocket-lint will update this guide with the latest.

Handmaid's Tale season 5: What to know

There are spoilers below.

Season five will likely follow in the aftermath of June murdering [spoiler] Commander Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) in season four's finale and her life in Canada. Having said that, while June may have escaped Gilead at the end of the last season, there are still others trying to leave the totalitarian country who may become a narrative focus.

It seems like a new teen handmaid Esther Keyes ( McKenna Grace) might have a large role. The actress hinted as much to The Hollywood Reporter: "I feel like there's only one June. But there is the whole rebellion and there are all of these other girls. So, there's one June and I supposed there's one Esther as well! We'll see what she gets up to into the next season", said Grace. "I have no clue, but I have hopes . . . I think she [Esther] definitely can be part of this rebellion and the new generation of Handmaids. She will cause quite a stir".

Handmaid's Tale season 5: Finale season?

Season five could be the final season. A Hulu executive suggested to Deadline that talks were underway about how to end the dystopian show. "The success of The Handmaid's Tale remains paramount for us", said Hulu's head of originals Jordan Hellman. "That said, what is also most important to us is that we close out that show in [a] creative fashion that feels organic so we are in constant communication, literally right now, talking with Bruce [Miller], Lizzie [Moss] and Warren [Littlefield], about what the best way to end The Handmaid's Tale is . . .

"We haven't landed on an answer… I imagine we're going to be able to answer that question in the coming months", he said.
