The Handmaid's Tale season 4 resumed its production in Toronto just recently. The series was forced to shut down filming in March due to the current global health crisis. Now, everyone is back on set and preparing to deliver new stories moving forward.
There have been a lot of updates and news about The Handmaid's Tale season 4 even though it's not coming anytime soon on Hulu. In fact, a recent report revealed that a new character is coming in the series once the latest installment premieres in the platform.
According to the latest news from Deadline, The Haunting of Hill House star Mckenna Grace will be joining the cast of the Hulu series in a recurring role. She will be playing the character of Mrs. Keyes, a farmer and a teenage wife of a much older Commander.
She is described as sharply intelligent and rules her farm and household with confidence. Furthermore, Mrs. Keyes is said to be rebellious and subversive streak. She is calm and pious on the outside, but there's a turmoil and insanity on the inside.
Mrs. Keyes is an intriguing character and it's interesting to see how her story would play out in The Handmaid's Tale season 4. Moreover, it's exciting to see how she will interact with June (Elisabeth Moss) and the other characters.
Beyond this story, one of the central themes of the upcoming installment is all about revolution. The latest trailer of the new season hinted that June is more interested in becoming a leader now. Her rebellion against the totalitarian regime of Gilead will continue.
More works are needed to be done even though she successfully helped the girls escaped Gilead. Based on the clip, June and her allies will be working together to upend the oppressive society of Gilead. Fans could expect a lot of intense moments moving forward in The Handmaid's Tale season 4.
There are a lot of things to anticipate and the situation could get even more chaotic. June is determined to fight back, and she won't be resting unless they get what they really deserve. There have been questions about her fate, but the trailer confirmed she's very much alive.
The previous installment left the future of June in question. Some have been speculating that she could die in the new season. But, as shown in the clip, she was able to get through her precarious position. Now, she's preparing and getting ready for a war.
The Handmaid's Tale season 4 is slated to premiere at some point in 2021 on Hulu.
