  • Hulu is making a sequel TV series to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

MGM Television and Hulu are developing The Testaments, Margaret Atwood's sequel to her best-selling dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale.

It says Bruce Miller, creator and showrunner of "The Handmaid's Tale" TV series, "is involved in discussions about how to best approach the new material". "Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story more than 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead". The Testaments is for release September 10.

"Margaret Atwood is a literary icon who continues to delight and challenge readers through her provocative and compelling prose", said Steve Stark, President of Television Production at MGM, in Deadline's article.

At this point, I'd prefer a break from Offred's story (no shade to Elisabeth Moss, who's done incredible work in the lead role) and would love to see some of that plotline's dangling questions answered by other characters, but we'll have to wait and see how all this plays out.

It seems Margaret Atwood has made Hulu her home, as the streaming service is also adapting her 2015 novel, The Heart Goes Last.

Margaret Atwood says, "I am delighted that the launch of "The Testaments" will take place not only in London on September 10, but also by live-streaming to over 1,000 cinemas around the world".

"The Handmaid's Tale" won the Emmy for outstanding drama series in 2017 for its first season.

Atwood's publisher Penguin Random House unexpectedly sent out early review copies to newspapers across the globe and several publications, including the New York Times, chose to publish reviews and extracts of the novel ahead of time.
