Handmaid's Tale season two release date revealed

15 November 2017

At the 2017 Emmy Awards, "The Handmaid's Tale" won for best drama, best lead actress (Elisabeth Moss), best supporting actress (Ann Dowd), best guest actress (Alexis Bledel), and best directing drama series (Reed Morano). No specific date in April was given.

Season 2 of the drama series will consist of 13 episodes and be centered around Offred's (Elisabeth Moss) pregnancy, focusing specifically on her battle to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead.

Also returning to Hulu is The Path, the unsettling Hugh Dancy, Aaron Paul, and Michelle Monaghan-led series about a cult in upstate NY.

This should come as good news for Hulu subscribers and The Handmaid's Tale fans who are eager for that second season. It will have a total of 13 episodes, which is three more than the multiple Emmy-winning first season.

The news was revealed by Hulu via the official The Handmaid's Tale Twitter channel.

Oilers acquire Cammalleri from Kings for Jokinen
The Edmonton Oilers acquired centre Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday in exchange for forward Jussi Jokinen . He went on to play for the Montreal Canadiens the following season before returning to the Flames for a second stint in 2012.

In addition to Handmaid's, Hulu has also set premiere dates for two new limited series - The Looming Tower, and Hard Sun - and a returning drama in The Path.

Its success at the Emmys gave Hulu a much-needed flagship of its own, and in turn helped the platform become one to watch alongside the likes of Netflix, HBO, and FX.

Hulu's announcement also confirms that season two is now in production. Starring Jeff Daniels, the 10-episode series premieres Wednesday, Feb. 28. The series premieres on Hulu on February 28, 2018.

Finally, Hard Sun is slated for a series premiere on Wednesday, March 7.

These are likely not all the Hulu originals coming this spring. Here's everything we know thus far.
