The Story of Season 5: The Handmaid’s Tale
The Handmaid’s Tale’s Season 4 finale gives us an idea of what the show’s future might look like, even though there are no plot details. June and other Gilead survivors beat Fred Waterford to death in the woods.
Samira Webley, who plays Moira has stated that this is where the show’s momentum will be when it returns. This was her statement on The View. “We are pretty much back to where we were.
The season finale showed Commander Waterford’s fate, so everyone who watched it knew what had happened. June is in trouble as usual.” She said that June would still be in Canada during the new season trying to find a way to bring down Gilead.
TVLine’s Moss said, “This season has been one the most exciting we’ve ever had.” There have been many times when a lot has occurred. There are times when not as many things happen. Season 5 is almost impossible to keep up with.
It’s more than just words. It’s not just words. I mean it. There is so much happening that I almost can’t keep pace.” We’ll also be closer to The Testaments by Margaret Atwood.
Hulu confirmed that they would adapt the book. This book takes place 10 years after the original. Jordan Helman is responsible for scripted originals at Hulu. He has already spoken about how the book will link to The Handmaid’s Tale. The deadline was told by him that “The beginning and end of The Testaments at Hulu are connected.”

After the terrible death of Commander Waterford, in season 4, Joseph Fiennes won’t have much to do with the show. We might see him in flashbacks. As Bruce Miller, showrunner of Entertainment Weekly, suggested to Entertainment Weekly: “I would be dead if Joe [Fiennes] didn’t come back.”
