Dark, disturbing and utterly unmissable, this dystopian series was an undisputed TV highlight of 2017.
Now Elisabeth Moss returns as Offred, the brave handmaid enduring Gilead’s brutal regime.
When we left her, Offred was being bundled into a car by her illicit lover Nick (we’re still unsure if we can trust him). As the series picks up, we see that Offred and her fellow handmaids are to be punished for refusing to stone their friend, Janine.
But Offred is pregnant – and the powers that be can’t risk the life of a precious child… Fraught, tense and timely, this may be difficult to watch but it’s an absolute triumph.
