After ending on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, Hulu’s award-winning dystopian series The Handmaid’s Tale will finally be returning to screens for season five. Ahead of its premiere, showrunner Bruce Miller paid a touching tribute to Elisabeth Moss. Throughout the year fans have been eagerly awaiting to find out the fate of the beloved June Osborne (played by Elisabeth Moss). Thankfully, bosses recently confirmed The Handmaid’s Tale would return for its fifth instalment in September. After brutally murdering her captor Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) viewers have been anxiously waiting to see if June will go into hiding or answer for her crimes.
Before the audience can have their questions answered, the show’s creator and executive producer Bruce Miller opened up about working alongside the lead actress.He continued: “She’s a wonderful colleague, but creatively, she’s invested trust in me and opened herself up as an artist to me in ways that I cannot appreciate enough.” Since the series first landed in 2017, Moss has portrayed June Osborne who had been oppressed under a gruelling Gilead regime. After a Civil War, the totalitarian government went into power, replacing the US Constitution with a system of duties and privileges implemented in a hierarchy of social classes. Which forced every citizen assigned to a particular class and expected to fulfil a particular role depending on their uniform.
