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.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel of the same name, which follows lead character June and her struggles living in the totalitarian state of Gilead, where women are treated as the property of the state.

The Handmaid’s Tale season three ended with a nail-biting finale that left many fans in floods of tears, eagerly awaiting answers. Like many other productions during the pandemic, filming has been delayed due to coronavirus restrictions, meaning fans have been waiting longer than expected for the next installment of The Handmaid’s Tale.
