After a successful Golden Globes, In which The Handmaid’s Tale took home three awards, a first look trailer for season 2 has emerged from Hulu revealing its April 25th return date.

Based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, this series is set in Gilead, a totalitarian society in what used to be part of the United States. Gilead is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state and is faced with environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate. In a desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude. One of these women, Offred, is determined to survive the terrifying world she lives in, and find the daughter that was taken from her.

The trailer offers a glimpse of our characters as their problems loom large and the future looks fairly bleak in season 2.
