June goes to war in trailer for The Handmaid's Tale series four
A defiant June rallies an army against Gilead in the trailer for the fourth series of The Handmaid’s Tale.
The Emmy-winning drama, based on Margaret Atwood’s novel, stars Elisabeth Moss and depicts a dystopian version of the US.
The minute-and-a-half teaser features footage from the denouement of the previous series, as well as new scenes.
Commander Joseph Lawrence, played by Bradley Whitford, makes a return to the Channel 4 and Hulu show, as does Ann Dowd’s sinister Aunt Lydia.
Series three saw former handmaid June lead a rebellion to rescue the children of Gilead, but now she returns to dismantle its government in its entirety.
In one scene from the trailer, Aunt Lydia, who leads the re-education of detained handmaids, says of June: “I never allowed myself to see her for what she really is … beyond redemption.”
Moss shared the trailer with the caption: “Change never comes easy …”
The series is expected to debut in 2021.
