Season three of The Handmaid's Tale takes us into the dark heart of Gilead as Offred prepares to fight for her child … and her freedom.
This intense dystopian drama is set in an alternate reality in which the Land of the Free has been replaced by Gilead, a brutal religious fundamentalist regime in which women are the property of the State. With infertility a global problem, June is one of the few women who can still conceive. In this dystopian future, women are forced into slavery as handmaids, given to senior government officials to bear their children.
Season two kicked into high gear in the finale when the Marthas suddenly give June – now called Offred – the chance to escape with her baby. The episode was an emotional rollercoaster fraught with danger, defiance and sacrifice. In the end, with freedom so close, June couldn’t leave without Hannah, the daughter that was taken from her when she was captured. Now the might of Gilead stands between June and her daughter. To get her back and find freedom, she may have to bring down the whole system.
