However, just after she revealed the plans for the fifth season, the show was delayed because of the global pandemic, urging the fans to wait for another 5 months to watch the show. With everything coming back to normal, the showrunners marked the release of the fifth season.
The good news is already here but things are not how the viewers have imagined. Along with the fifth season coming on the screen, the wave of sadness emerges when viewers find out that season 5 will be the last and final season of the show.

The series is set to return on Hulu and every new episode will premiere on Wednesday.

Thank you to all of the fans of the show who make it possible for us to keep working on this show that we love so dearly.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Cast: Who will be back?
In the fourth season, we faced several changes and it doesn’t mean that things are alright for them, the fifth season is probably going to bring more light to the characters and the series is set to return all the main characters on the show.
In the fifth season, you can expect Elisabeth Moss to be back as June Osborne. Along with her, there will be Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy Waterford, Madeline Brewer as Janine, Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia, O-T Fagbenle as Luke, Max Minghella as Nick, Samira Wiley as Moira, Bradley Whitford as Commander Lawrence and Amanda Brugel as Rita.
Along with this, there will Christine Ko who is likely to appear as Lily in the show. Angelson has also announced her role in the fifth part. She said, “I am tempted to say that, in reality, there are no villains,”
She revealed in an interview with TVLine, “And while Serena is ‘the bad guy’ on the show, Serena also is coming up with very painful solutions to a very painful problem. She’s going to drastic ends.

“To play Mrs. Wheeler, I couldn’t say ‘I’m playing a bad guy.’ I had to say, ‘I’m playing someone willing to do anything to continue the human race, and that’s what we’re up against. So, do I want to be the person I am? Maybe not. But I am accepting that this is my reality, that is what I’m doing.’ That was how I got by with that.”
Unfortunately, fans were surprised when Alexis Bledel who appeared as Emily Malek confirmed that she won’t be coming for the fifth part. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she said, “After much thought, I felt I had to step away from The Handmaid’s Tale at this time. I am forever grateful to Bruce Miller for writing such truthful and resonant scenes for Emily, and to Hulu, MGM, the cast and crew for their support.”
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Storyline: What Can We Expect with it?
Margaret Atwood, the author of the novel said “When it first came out it was viewed as being far-fetched. However, when I wrote it I was making sure I wasn’t putting anything into it that humans had not already done somewhere at some time.”
As has been said, the fifth season will be the final season of the show and it will surely bring down all the clues of the series. We are expecting that the showrunners will probably end all the doubts.
In an interview with TVLine, Strahovski revealed that Serena will be going to suspect June for her husband’s death. Strahovski said, “Yes. I feel like she’ll know in her heart. They know each other so well, I can’t imagine that not crossing her mind… I can imagine June purposely telling Serena about it because she wants Serena to living in absolute fear, if and when she gets out of the detention center. I mean, could you imagine?
“If you knew that someone was outside, capable of doing something like that to your husband or partner, and then you’re trying to live out in the real world, with a baby? Knowing that June has done what she’s done, I just think that is the most paranoid existence you could ever live.”
Miller also discussed the fifth part with The Hollywood Reporter and said, “I think the stories of Serena and Fred that we haven’t seen before, even in early Gilead, are fascinating. In the finale, we revisit Fred and June and what happened in the Waterford house in flashbacks. I would never take anything like that off the table. I love that we can access that stuff where the viewer and June are on the same page and thinking back to the same things.
“Before, there were a lot of flashbacks where June was leaving us to remember about Hannah. But now, we’re with her. When she’s walking to see Fred and she’s remembering walking to the ceremony, I remember that. You’re not just being carried by her, you’re walking with her in that experience.
“It has the potential to push things in a ton of ways. Also, it could push Serena to be a very sympathetic figure. It could push her into an inexplicable rage; it could push her into a level of freedom. For June, it could push her to infamy or it could push her to prison. She’s a refugee who did this but, on the other hand, who is going to know? Who was there and who is going to tell them? The nice thing is that it can turn into a giant image and inspiration, or an image that besmirches the Handmaids.
“Anyone who looks at it can see a very different thing, which is what I was trying to do with the placement of the image at the end of the episode. Where you say, ‘Oh, crap, she did this.’ It’s all sort of great and awful feelings at the same time; Fred doesn’t have a head and it’s this horrible thing, and yet she’s standing there with the baby. The end is about how wonderful and terrible that is. Moving forward, that image of Fred is what June sees every time she closes her eyes.”
