Season 2's April premiere is still far away, but new photos released by Hulu show off more of the show's gorgeous cinematography, finding vibrant beauty in the bleakest of worlds. But these images look as if the world is about to get its revenge for all the horrifying human rights violations now taking place in Gilead.
The last time we saw Offred, she was being hauled away in a van. According to Hulu, season two will be "shaped by Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead". This is most likely one of our first looks at the dreaded colonies, and it was quite a challenge for the show to figure out how to approach it.
What was hinted at in Atwood's novel can now be fully realized in The Handmaid's Tale season 2. She's also drenched in blood on one side, but she doesn't seem to have a wound that could have led to that much blood loss. Not only has Offred survived, but she's getting bloody. But if the blood does end up being hers, that's going to suck because this is our new vision board for 2018: Offred kicking ass and taking names.
"The Handmaid's Tale" took home eight Emmy Awards at the 2017 ceremony. Do the colors and harsh climates indicate that things are about to get a whole lot worse for everyone, Gilead officials included? But he is willing to reveal that this season will explore the lives of the refugees (like Samira Wiley's Moira) who've been able to escape Gilead as well as those who have been exiled to the Colonies (see photo below), the polluted and contaminated areas of North America.
Leonardo DiCaprio to star in Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson movie
A ton of resources are being put into this project and it sounds as if it will be one of Tarantino's biggest films of his career. Tarantino has been on a kick recently of creating films set in the past, with his own very bloody twist and tone added to them.
