I am super curious as to what her story will entail!


I have read an article that makes Elisabeth Moss hint at what could be ahead. I should see if I can find that one again.

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Air Date, Theories, Cast, and Spoilers - Hulu's Handmaid's Tale Gets Second Season

Quote:
1) Atwood's vision for the future of her characters will play heavily into Season 2. "I think [my participation] will be more involving in the second season because we will be in uncharted territories so more invention will have to take place," she told EW. Miller echoed that to THR, noting that Atwood has had a long time to think about what happened to her characters after the book's conclusion.

2) June (Elisabeth Moss) isn't going anywhere, of course—and most of your favorite characters will be back, too. "Offred being pregnant, her being dragged off were all parts of that tantalizing and frustrating ending [in the book]," Miller said. "So now we get to go down that road and we get to explore that. But certainly the people that we met and the situations we got into and the things that Margaret Atwood set up in Season 1 are not going away."

3) June is done being passive. "Season 2 is what happens after you become a little rebellious," Miller told EW. We already saw June say no to Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) in the season finale, dropping her rock instead of stoning poor Janine to death. This seems to be the point of no return for June.

4) It will be even darker than Season 1. "It's going to get worse," Moss told The Pool. Does that mean we'll be saying goodbye to some favorites for good?


5) It will have 13 episodes instead of 10. Season 2's story arc is already lengthier than Season 1's, and it will be interesting to see how much of the season will be set in the present day versus flashbacks.

6) It will be more intersectional. A major complaint surrounding The Handmaid's Tale's first season was its refusal to acknowledge race within Gilead while cherrypicking plot points from the real experiences of enslaved people. Angelica Jade Bastién at Vulture argues, "[The show is] more concerned with the interiority of white women at the expense of people of color who recognize that Gilead isn’t a possible horrifying future, but the reality of what America has always been," while Cate Young at Cosmopolitan.com calls it a "profound failure of storytelling." Miller told Inverse he saw the critiques and conversation on Twitter and is working to make amends: “The thoughtful conversations online really inspired a lot of thoughtful conversations in the writers’ room about this,” he said. “It’s always hard to add another topic that is complicated and deserves real attention, but we’re up to the challenge."

7) Mayday will be a focal point, but it could very well become another enemy for June and the Handmaids—as dangerous as Gilead, even. "Mayday is not the Handmaid rescue organization—it’s the anti-Gilead organization," Miller told the New York Times. "And the anti-Gilead organization is not necessarily a friend to June or a friend to Handmaids. If I was going to try to hurt Gilead, the first thing I might do is kill all the Handmaids. You’re trying to weaken the state."

8) Rita (Amanda Brugel) and the Marthas will play a much larger role in Gilead. Miller says they were purposely made "invisible" in the first season, but they do have "networks" through which they communicate. The final moments of the season 1 finale signal that Rita is involved with Mayday, so it'll be interesting to see whose side she takes if it turns into a Mayday/Handmaid face-off. Rita seems to really care about June, and we can't imagine her killing any of the Handmaids just to show the leaders of Gilead a lesson.

9) June and Nick (Max Minghella) might eventually find Luke—and things could get awkward. She's pregnant with Nick's baby—and beholden to him to keep her safe, for the time being. Meanwhile, Luke is trying to save her and their daughter from Gilead. "She's in this position where she might be in love with two people," Moss told ELLE.com. "I think she does love Nick—if I can speak for her—but I don't know if she knows that she does, yet. But she has a husband who she also loves, who's the father of Hannah, who she also now knows is alive. It's the most complicated Real Housewives episode you've ever seen."

10) Things "get complicated" for Luke (O-T Fagbenle) and Moira (Samira Wiley). Their reunion in Canada at the end of Episode 10 is one of the most moving moments in the series, but that doesn't mean it's a happy ending. Luke will obviously keep searching for June and Hannah, Miller says, while Moira will focus on recovering from her time at Jezebels.

11) Janine will get some sort of closure. We last saw her saved from death by stoning after June took a stand. Will Gilead execute her by other means? Or give her another opportunity to bear more children? "I truly am very curious what happens to her because I immediately think, 'Oh, they’ll just kill her,' but then they’ve got this whole other thing on their hands with the Handmaids dropping the stones," Brewer told Vulture. "What are we going to do with her now? She has two healthy ovaries!"

10) The Waterfords will return. "They're still a part of our plans for Season 2 but in interesting ways," Miller told THR. We'll definitely see more of Joseph Fienne's Fred, in particular: Season 2 wil explore, "What is the commander doing all day long, and what is his life like? What are his responsibilities?" Miller told NYT. As for Mrs. Waterford, Miller says, "I can’t imagine Serena’s going to be too happy... I wouldn’t want to be in that house.” What does that mean for Hannah, whom Serena dangled over June's head as collateral for a safe pregnancy in the finale?

yeah I was excited to read that as well that we'll get 13 instead of 10! I do wonder if we'll get episodes before April as well... In order to have enough time to submit any ep they want before the Emmy deadlines... (not sure if they take those things into consideration)

I have no clue either
Isn't this one of their first original shows?


I am curious to see what the Marthas will bring to the 2nd season, especially Rita now that she found June's stuff!

I am happy that Margaret Atwood is being a part of S2 as well.. These are her characters and she knows them best!

Quote:
and most of your favorite characters will be back, too
Most? So not everyone? Who do you think we won't see again?
