The Handmaid's Tale - Season 3

If seasons one and two were all about June becoming a survivor of Gilead, enduring its brutality but not breaking, season three was all about her burning it down. A radicalised June transformed from survivor to resistance fighter, sacrificing people and to some extent, her compassion in service of that goal.

The Handmaid's Tale - Season 3

The first three episodes of the series premiered on April 26, 2017; the subsequent seven episodes were released every Wednesday. In July 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth season,[7] which premiered on April 27, 2021.[8] In September 2019, it was announced that Hulu and MGM were developing a sequel series, to be based on Atwood's 2019 novel The Testaments.[9] In December 2020, ahead of the fourth season premiere, the series was renewed for a fifth season,[10] which premiered on September 14, 2022.[11] In September 2022, ahead of the fifth season premiere, the series was renewed for a sixth and final season.[12]

On May 3, 2017, The Handmaid's Tale was renewed for a second season which premiered on April 25, 2018.[52][53]Moss told the news media that the subsequent episodes would cover further developments in the story, filling in some of the unanswered questions and continuing the narrative already "finished" in the book.[54] The second season consists of 13 episodes and began filming in fall 2017. Alexis Bledel returned as a series regular.[55]

Showrunner Bruce Miller stated that he envisioned 10 seasons of the show, stating, "Well, you know, honestly, when I started, I tried to game out in my head what would ten seasons be like? If you hit a home run, you want energy to go around the bases, you want enough story to keep going, if you can hook the audience to care about these people enough that they're actually crying at the finale."[56] Season 2 was filmed in Ontario, primarily in Toronto, but some scenes were shot in Hamilton and Cambridge.[57]

On May 2, 2018, Hulu renewed the series for a third season,[58] which premiered on June 5, 2019.[59] Season 3 started production in Toronto in October 2018.[60][61] Scenes for season 3 were also filmed in Cambridge and Hamilton, Ontario as well as in Washington, D.C.[62][63][64] Season 3 saw the show's long-serving Director of Photography, Colin Watkinson, make his directorial debut with the episode "Unknown Caller". Cambridge, Ontario was nominated by the Location Managers Guild International for "Outstanding Film Office" for their work on this season. This was the first time that a Canadian Film Office was nominated for this honor.[65]

On July 26, 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth season.[7] Season 4, consisting of 10 episodes, began production in March 2020, with Elisabeth Moss filming her directorial debut, but work had to be halted after only a few weeks, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[66][67] In June 2020, Hulu announced that the fourth season would premiere in 2021.[68] Production on season 4 resumed in September 2020[21] and wrapped on February 25, 2021, with Moss having directed three episodes.[69]

On December 10, 2020, ahead of the fourth season premiere, Hulu renewed the series for a fifth season.[10] Season 5 started production in Toronto in February 2022 and continued through July 2022.[70] In May 2022, Alexis Bledel departed the series ahead of the fifth season, and stated, "After much thought, I felt I had to step away from The Handmaid's Tale".[71] On September 8, 2022, ahead of the fifth season premiere, Hulu renewed the series for a sixth and final season.[12]

In India, the series premiered on February 5, 2018, on AXN and ran for the first two seasons before moving to Amazon Prime Video for Season 3, which made all three seasons available for viewing on January 31, 2020.[83][84]

The first season was released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 13, 2018, the second season on December 4, 2018, and the third season on November 19, 2019, by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.[86][87][88] The fourth season was released on DVD only (no Blu-ray) on April 5, 2022, by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.[89]

On Rotten Tomatoes, 94% of 259 reviews are positive for the first season, with an average rating of 8.65/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Haunting and vivid, The Handmaid's Tale is an endlessly engrossing adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel that's anchored by a terrific central performance from Elisabeth Moss."[94] On Metacritic, the season has a weighted average score of 92 out of 100 based on 41 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[95]

On Rotten Tomatoes, 89% of 340 critics have given the season a positive review, and an average rating of 8.35/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Beautifully shot but dishearteningly relevant, The Handmaid's Tale centers its sophomore season tightly around its compelling cast of characters, making room for broader social commentary through more intimate lenses."[96] Metacritic assigned the season a weighted average score of 86 out of 100 based on 28 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[97]

Some critics perceived the second season's depictions of violence as excessive. The Atlantic's Sophie Gilbert wrote: "There came a point during the first episode where, for me, it became too much."[111] Lisa Miller of The Cut wrote: "I have pressed mute and fast forward so often this season, I am forced to wonder: 'Why am I watching this'? It all feels so gratuitous, like a beating that never ends."[112] The Daily Telegraph's Rebecca Reid admitted she had an anxiety attack watching an episode of the show.[113]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the fourth season earned positive reviews from 70% of 46 critics, with an average rating of 7/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Elisabeth Moss is better than ever, but scattershot plotting and an overbearing sense of doom may prove too grim for some viewers to really enjoy The Handmaid's Tale's fourth season."[100] According to Metacritic, which collected 18 reviews and calculated an average score of 62, the season received "generally positive reviews".[101]

Kristen Baldwin of Entertainment Weekly gave it a "C+" grade and wrote that the series "delivers on some long-delayed promises, but ultimately it's too little, too late."[116] Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe wrote, "the dystopian drama has exceeded the natural lifespan of its story, as it plows forward with nothing new to say, tinkling cymbals and sounding brass."[117] In a more positive review from Jen Chaney of Vulture, she wrote, "Thankfully, season four finally regains some momentum and forward motion. Based on the eight out of ten total episodes made available to critics, this is the best The Handmaid's Tale has been since its first season."[118]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the fifth season earned positive reviews from 81% of 27 critics, with an average rating of 7.55/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "The Handmaid's Tale has lost its urgency after spreading its once-arresting premise thin in a season focused on vengeance's consequences, but the women of Gilead are still played with compelling exactitude."[102] On Metacritic, it received an average score of 63 out of 100, based on 7 reviews, indicating "generally positive reviews".[103]

Critics were given the first eight episodes of the season to review. Writing for IGN, Tara Bennett gave it a "good" score of 7 out of 10 and wrote in her verdict: "The Handmaid's Tale remains the canary in the coalmine of TV shows [...]. Elisabeth Moss continues to give a livewire performance as former handmaid/now Canadian refugee June Osborne. [...] But overall, the series continues to suffer with very measured storylines that can't seem to recapture the kinetic energy of the first two seasons."[119] Abby Cavenaugh of Collider graded it with a "B-" and said, "Season 5 is full of scarce highs and really low lows, lots of heavy-hitting drama, and emotional scenes. Some of the biggest events of this season lead to some pretty uncomfortable viewing, but viewers who stick with it will be rewarded with some huge moments that will have repercussions for the final season."[120]

The Handmaid's Tale continues to feel quite a lot different this season than the previous two, in part because the show has begun to mirror real-world events a little more closely, and in part because the trials and tribulations of June Osborne feel somehow muted compared to the original seasons.

I want her to become the nightmare she talks about. I want her to hurry up already and meet up with the resistance and start blowing up military targets and castrate Commander Waterford and burn the whole sick, twisted Gilead to the ground. But from a storytelling standpoint, this is all beginning to feel like too much plot armor rather than following the logic of the world Hulu has adapted from the original Margaret Atwood novel. In the first couple seasons, there was always such tension, such dread at every moment, but now I'm not so sure.

I'm getting a little bit emotional just writing about it, sheesh. It's moments like this that give me hope for this season. It may not be quite as good overall as the first two, and especially the first season which was horrifically brilliant, but we're getting into new places here, new emotional territories.

All told, while I do still think this season is getting off to a strangely slow start and I'm a little worried about the direction (or lack of) that it's headed, I still found this to be pretty gripping television with some very powerful emotional moments.

An even bigger thing happens later, but in terms of immediate impact on core The Handmaid's Tale characters, this is perhaps the most seismic moment of the show this season. Tuello meets them at a little stop in the middle of nowhere; he asks them to follow him in his car to a place he knows that's safe. Blindly, they do. Fred asks Serena if she trusts him. She says yes. But on her face, she's clearly indicating otherwise; again, all reason has gone out the window here. 041b061a72
