The dramatic ending of The Handmaid’s Tale’s fourth season was one of its biggest finales yet, though it raises plenty of questions about where the show will go next. For those curious what protagonist June Osborne will get up to in season five, showrunner Bruce Miller gave some hints in an interview with Deadline, joined by series star Joe Fiennes.
While season four essentially wrapped up some of the show’s biggest plotlines, the story was always intended to continue, with a fifth season ordered before the fourth even premiered. The quoted interview contains spoilers for The Handmaid’s Tale season four finale, so only read on if you are up to date.
“What we want the show to do is move forward,” Miller said on the topic of season five. “It should be aggregate. I mean, the characters should be the characters they were at the end of the season added to the characters they are in this season, not just restarted.”
