The Handmaid's Tale cleaned up during the 2017 Emmy's. It ended the night with eight out of thirteen wins. Ann Dowd beat out fellow cast mate Samira Wiley for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. And Emmy's were also won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour), and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary or Fantasy Program (One Hour or More).

Exactly when The Handmaid's Tale was due to return has remained a mystery, up until this point. The announcement was made alongside a brief teaser video, confirming that season 2 is now in development as well as hinting that there is "no turning back".

Like the first season, The Handmaid's Tale season 2 will consist of 13 episodes with one episode released weekly. "We have no intention of doing anything else than being even more balls to the wall than we were in Season 1".

Praise be! The Emmy-winning "Handmaid's Tale" series on Hulu will return in April. According to Moss, the show's star and executive producer, "Season two is going to be bad too, really dark".

Amazon also listed premiere dates for three other shows.

As part of its midseason lineup, Hulu will also be adding two new series - including The Looming Tower, a Jeff Daniels-led limited series based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name, which centers on the rise of Al Qaeda and the events leading up to the 9/11 attacks. The six-episode season will kick off on March 7th. The series tells the story of a world on the brink of natural disaster.
