WARNING: This section of the article contains spoilers for The Handmaid’s Tale season 3
The Handmaid’s Tale season three has only just finished airing on Hulu so it’s not clear yet what direction the plot will take.
The next series is likely to pick up on the cliffhanger ending of season three where June (played by Elisabeth Moss) was swept away by her fellow handmaidens.
The children managed to escape and make the journey to Canada, so we are likely to see more of this in the new season.
Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) was also arrested in the final episode, which will have an impact on her future next season.
WHAT HAPPENED IN SEASON TWO OF THE HANDMAID’S TALE?
Showrunner Bruce Miller has hinted at potentially severe consquences for June in the next season in a new interview with E! News.
He said: “You can imagine, I mean, if one child getting out and going to Canada [became] an international incident.
“For Gilead, these kids were kidnapped from their homes. So I think they react like any other country would, but magnified because we’re living in a world where children are very rare.
“So are there going to be consequences more than [June] getting shot? Yes, absolutely.”
WILL JUNE OSBORNE BE KILLED IN SEASON FOUR?
Is there a trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale season 4?
No, no trailer has been released yet for the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale.

The tweet read: “You did this, Resistors. Praise be. Season Four of The #HandmaidsTale is happening!”
