The initial three episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, season 4 will debut on Hulu on April 28, 2021, at midnight ET, the very same time that previous seasons’ new episodes were released. Following the three-episode premiere, the rest of the upcoming episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale will air every Wednesday on Hulu.
What is “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 4 about?
The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 will pick up right where it left off in Season 3, following the cliffhanger ending where June was pulled away by her fellow handmaidens. The kids were able to flee and make the trip to Canada, so fans are expecting to see a continuation of this during the new season. Serena was also apprehended in the last episode of Season 3, which will have an effect on her journey as well in the upcoming season.
Producer Bruce Miller has also signaled some potentially serious implications for June in Season 4, according to a recent interview with E! News.
Who stars in “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 4?
Fans can expect to see some of their usual favorites in Season 4 such as:

Amanda Brugel will further be joining the cast as Rita. She will play the role of a 14-year-old Mckenna Grace, according to Deadline. She’s set to portray a “confident” and “rebellious” young bride of a Commander who’s far older than her.
How long is “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 4?
