'The Handmaid's Tale' Season 4 Is Bound to Be the Craziest Season Yet
The Handmaid's Tale is an American dystopian tragedy television series created by Bruce Miller, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. The series was ordered by the streaming service Hulu as a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes, for which production began in late 2016. The plot features a dystopia following a Second American Civil War wherein a totalitarian society subjects fertile women, called "Handmaids", to child-bearing slavery.

Actress Mckenna Grace will play Mrs. Keyes, described as “a sharply intelligent, teenaged wife of a much older Commander who rules her farm and household with confidence.” The new character will show duality with a “calm and pious” exterior while suffering from internal "turmoil."

The Handmaid's Tale Trailer & Teasers:
Back in Canada, the season 3 ending with the kids coming off the airplane hints to greater things to come. The folks in Canada will play a bigger role in the coming season, per Bruce.
"The people in Toronto are as much a part of the story as the people in Gilead," he told TV Guide after the season 3 finale. "All the people in Toronto are showing us what June has waiting for her if she does ever get out. You're kind of telling those stories of possible routes for June, but it's not all going to be sunshine and lollipops."
He later elaborated with specific details to THR: “For Emily, Moira, and now for Rita, these people are living with the question of how much Gilead did they bring with them to Canada. That's what Aunt Lydia Ann Dowd said, 'Gilead is within you.' Which means you carry it around.”
