Given that the first season was based on Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian novel, the second season of the series - which is created by Bruce Miller and produced by MGM Television - will tread brand new ground.
The Handmaid's Tale made a huge splash in its first season, racking up eight Emmys, two Golden Globe wins, and three Critics Choice awards. "The biggest barrier of Season 2 was Season 1", Miller admits. But at a certain point, you can't spend all your time second-guessing things. "What I can tell you, and I'm not joking one bit, is it's knocking me out where this story is going". "The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead", the streaming service said in a statement. MGM serves as the worldwide distributor for the series.
Miller doesn't want to give much more away about the plot, but he promises he's not being cagey; "I just want the viewers to experience it for themselves!"More news: NVIDIA's (NVDA) "Buy" Rating Reaffirmed at B. Riley

Miller says the season will also expand on the lives of refugees who escape Gilead (such as Samira Wiley's Moira) as well as the prisoners who have been sent to work at the polluted "Colonies" scattered throughout America.
One of the sneak peek pictures shows the funeral of one of the handmaids, a scene Miller is particularly proud of. "These scenes that are so attractive, while set in such a bad place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy". Are you looking forward to the new season?
