Even before Season 4 kicked off, fans were informed that The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 has been greenlit. To top off that excitement, series star Elisabeth Moss has a bit of an update on what viewers should expect next.
The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 star teases something ‘wild’
The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 isn’t going to be easy, according to Elisabeth Moss herself.
“I will say that the season itself is possibly one of the wilder rides that we’ve had,” Moss told TVLine.“We’ve definitely had some seasons [where], you know, a lot happens. Some seasons, not as much happens.”
“I almost can’t keep up with” what happens in the upcoming episodes,” the actress laughed before adding “and it’s not lip service. I truly mean I almost can’t keep up with the amount of activity that’s happening.”
What happened in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4?
Moss' June lured Commander Waterford, alias her rapist, into the demilitarized zone between Gilead and Canada in the Season 4 finale. Then she and a bunch of her former handmaids followed and killed him in the woods.
June returned home only to say farewell to her husband and newborn girl; Serena opened a mystery parcel at a detention center and discovered Joe's finger and wedding ring inside.
The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 release date
Unfortunately, there is no announced date for The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 as of April 2022. The show, however, has returned to its filming location in Ontario, Canada, to begin production.
A filming notice for the Brantford area stated that a show called Ruby Road would be filming there from mid-February to mid-March. Ruby Road is thought to be the production name for The Handmaid's Tale.
Ann Dowd, who plays Aunt Lydia, recently told The Independent that filming would begin in February 2022.
Amanda Brugel also released a video from the set on Feb. 9 and including a chair with her character's name, Rita, written on it.
