The Handmaid’s Tale fans were treated to its fourth outing both in the US and the UK on Hulu and Channel 4. The season may have come to an end but fear not, as it has already been confirmed there will be a fifth series. Nevertheless, talks are now underway about how and when it will come to an end for good.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Handmaid’s Tale.

After years under the controlling eye of Gilead, June Osbourne (played by Elizabeth Moss) was able to escape the totalitarian country.

She is free and no longer working as a handmaid but there are still thousands of young women who are still trapped and in need of saving.

But will June be able to help them now she is on the other side or is Gilead going to continue to get away with this backwards society?

Luckily, season four will not be the end of the drama as another series is on the way.

Will there be a season 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale?

The Handmaid’s Tale was renewed the show for a fifth season in December 2020.

In a statement, creator Bruce Miller said: “We’re very grateful to Hulu and MGM that the show will be returning for a fifth season, and especially to our loyal fans for their support.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue to tell these stories, with our incredible cast and crew.”

However, despite there being excitement surrounding a pending fifth series, it does appear the end is neigh for the show.

According to Deadline, the creators of The Handmaid’s Tale are now in talks of when and how to end the show.

It is believed filming for the upcoming series hasn’t even started yet.

So there is a possibility that season six won’t happen if series five is its last.

Hulu’s head of originals Jordan Hellman spoke of the current discussions being had about its potential ending.

Hellman explained: “The success of The Handmaid’s Tale remains paramount for us.

“That said, what is also most important to us is that we close out that show in [a] creative fashion that feels organic so we are in constant communication, literally right now, talking with Bruce [Miller], Lizzie [Moss] and Warren [Littlefield], about what the best way to end The Handmaid’s Tale is.

“We haven’t landed on an answer… I imagine we’re going to be able to answer that question in the coming months.”

Express.co.uk will update this article once more information has come out.

For now though, fans can look forward to more new episodes with the pending fifth series.

So far, it isn’t clear when season five is going to premiere on Hulu but it may not be until sometime in spring of 2022.

UK fans are then going to have to wait longer as the show first airs in America before coming out on Channel 4.

The Handmaid’s Tale is available to watch on Hulu and All4.
