Once, June had a husband, a job, a daughter, a life. Now she’s Offred, enslaved as a walking womb in a country where the only thing rarer than pregnancy is escape. From season to season, we see June’s power and her burning faith in the cause of overthrowing the regime growing and growing, until she’s on the cusp of either dismantling Gilead or destroying her own life – or both.
The critically acclaimed dystopian drama is based on the celebrated 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, which won the first-ever Arthur C Clarke Award, selling over eight million copies and topping the bestseller lists again in 2017, when the TV adaptation debuted in the aftermath of the Trump election.
The series has won 75 awards to date, including 12 Emmys and Golden Globes for Best Drama Series and Best Actress for its star, Elisabeth Moss. It holds an 8.4/10 score on IMDb and an average critics rating of 80% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Wrap calls The Handmaid’s Tale “a transcendent cultural phenomenon”; IndieWire says the fourth season “returns with a roar”’; and Collider says, “Those who have seen the previous three seasons and choose to come back for more, brace yourselves, because you can still expect this show to dig into the darkness, as much as ever. But you might be shocked as well, to also feel something rare and precious and new: Hope.”
The full Seasons 1-3 are now available to binge-watch on Showmax, and new episodes of Season 4 land every Thursday, express from the US and only on Showmax.
