The full The Handmaid’s Tale trailer has been a long time coming, with a shorter version released back in December hinting at the chaos to come. 

But now we can see the full extent of June’s wrath in an explosive two-and-a-half-minute-long trailer that takes the viewer back to Gilead. 

The Handmaid's Tale Season 4 will see June, played by Elizabeth Moss, return to Gilead as a rebel leader, seeking revenge on those who have wronged her and other women like her. It’s safe to say, it doesn’t appear that anyone will be spared on June’s quest for vengeance. 

The original 2020 trailer opened with June stating, "I can't rest. My daughter deserves better. We all deserve better. Change never comes easy. This war isn't going to win itself." 

This new Handmaid’s Tale trailer shows June evading capture from Commander Fred Waterford, played by Joseph Fiennes, declaring, “You have destroyed my life, my family, my friends, my country, and my child.”
