The second season of The Handmaid's Tale wasn't easy to watch. I mean, neither was the first, but the second one took all that agonizing misery we'd gotten used to and somehow threw it into overdrive. There was the near-mass-execution of handmaids, set to Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" (probably the most harrowing three minutes in TV history). There were the falling fingernails of the colonies and the book of the dead up in Canada. There was that torturous moment when June/Offred found a car to escape, but couldn't ram it out of the garage in time. You remember, right? Of course you do. Because it was scarring as hell.
Well, breathe a (cautious) sigh of relief because the trailer for Season 3 is here and the handmaids are finally in full rebellion. Want sneaky escapes under the cover of darkness and surreptitious exchanges in the supermarket? You got it! Want sexy hand-touching between June and Nick? It's on! Want Aunt Lydia too weak to cattle prod anyone? Somebody high-five me! Most excitingly of all... is this a full-blown alliance with Mrs Waterford we see? Under his eye, no more!
The third season of The Handmaid's Tale hits Hulu in June. In the meantime, you can see a hint of the revolution to come right here:
