The plot of the story
In a dystopian world where fertility rates have declined due to sexually transmitted disease and environmental pollution, a new government has taken over the USA and renamed it Gilead as a consequence of a civil war.
In the series, worldwide fertile women are captured and turned into slaves in the city of Gilead. They are called the Handmaids and are trained to serve the homes of the powerful men. The handmaids are expected to submit themselves before their masters in the presence of their barren wives in order to bear children for them.
Similar is the story of June Osborne, the protagonist of the series. Prior to her life in Gilead, June was a free, independent and a self-committed woman. However, her life takes a sharp turn when America loses the war and imposes military rule.
What happened in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 finale?
Season 3 finale of The Handmaid’s Tale witnessed the most gruelling episode of the season with June planning a rebellion against the totalitarian and the theocratic state of Gilead.
The season finale ended on a cliffhanger when June (played by actress Elisabeth Moss) smuggles over a hundred children into Canada. Thus, serving as a critical blow to the oppressive state of Gilead.
But the plan is backfired when she is confronted by a Gilead guard and is left bleeding from her stomach on the ground. In a nail-biting finale, fans are desperate to know what happens next with June in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4.
Here’s what can plausibly happen in the next season of The Handmaid’s Tale
The fourth season might witness the rebellion (once kick-started by June) being reignited by her husband Luke with the other handmaids on his side.
Essentially, June’s former lover Nick Blaine (played by actor Max Minghella) has finally moved up the ranks to become a commander in Season 3. In what can be seen as a complete disrupt in the social order, Nick will gain a prime position and square up against his employers.
The release date for The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 is still unknown as the production for the fourth season was set to kick off in March. But The Handmaid’s Tale creator, executive producer and showrunner Bruce Miller has announced a two months hiatus for its cast and crew. Thus, anticipating a delay in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 release date.
