Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Plot
The finale of Season 3 left its viewers with a nail-biting cliffhanger when June was shot in the process of successfully freeing 52 kids from the tyrannical Gilead and then saved by her fellow handmaids. Season 4 will likely involve what happens to Moira and Luke when realizing June was the one orchestrating the children’s escape.
As a matter of fact, Hulu posted a trailer for season 4 in June to tease viewers and compensate for the delay news. Nonetheless, this trailer was mostly a clips’ mashup from previous seasons.
