The Handmaid’s Tale Plot and Cast

Elisabeth Moss

We can be sure to expect a lot of drama considering the way The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 ended. Speaking about the fifth season, Miller told a news outlet:

“I have to say I would have had very different ideas before the pandemic. I mean, we talked about it, and Lizzie and I have talked about it, and the writing staff and I have talked about it extensively about where we’re going precisely, but I do feel like, after this year, it’s a good time to reassess.”

He continued,

“So I know where I am in the story, and I do feel like we’re kind of reaching kind of a pivot point, but whether that’s the end or not, I don’t know. It just feels like it’s a good time to reassess what you were thinking, just because the story world has opened up because the real world has changed so much.”

The new season will feature Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne alongside Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy Waterford, O. T. Fagbenle as Luke Bankole, and Samira Wiley as Moira Strand.
