Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ brings Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel to life with terrifying and timely precision, and performances from Elisabeth Moss and Alexis Bledel that will rock your very soul. Our early review, before the first three ‘Tales’ arrive on April 26.
Gilmore Girls fans were lucky enough to get one revival, and it’s likely a second go wouldn’t carry the same urgency. Even stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel aren’t 100% certain of a need to revisit the Gilmore Girls, despite that closing twist.
Something tells us the hashtag “#TOOREAL” will trend across the internet once Hulu debuts its forthcoming adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Come, watch the downfall of our political structure in a full trailer for the April premiere, and be warned of some disturbing imagery.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: however arduous each TV revival proves, fans will inevitably clamor for another continuation. Netflix’s Gilmore Girls in particular ended A Year in the Life on the cliffhanger creators always intended, but may now be in “preliminary” conversations for another followup, reports reveal.
There’s no two ways about the fact that Hulu’s take on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is going to feel horribly relevant in its April premiere. That’s never more apparent than in a new featurette for the Elisabeth Moss drama, which explores the rise of misogynist dystopia “Gilead.”
One wouldn’t necessarily think of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale for a primetime Super Bowl ad, but Hulu’s Elisabeth Moss drama is already breaking down societal norms. See for yourself, as a fresh trailer teases what was once forbidden, and the misogynist hellscape Offred now lives in.
Everything we’ve seen from Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has seemed equal parts timely and enrapturing, but a first trailer for the Elisabeth Moss-led series very much seals the deal. See for yourself, as the world becomes a dystopian, misogynist hell that Offred is intent on surviving in the first footage.
It could be time yet before Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale gets a first trailer, but the Elisabeth Moss-led continues to outdo itself in casting. Newly revealed among the major cast is Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel, in a role presumably more sympathetic than Rory Gilmore.
Unlike other revivals, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life seemed expressly designed to return its prolific cast for one last stay in Stars Hollow. That is, until those oft-referenced four final words left further questions to answer, something Netflix now seems to be teasing over Twitter.
Less than a week will see the Gilmore Girls dropping a year’s worth of reunion in time for a post-Thanksgiving binge, as the four-part Day in the Life catches long-lost fans up on all of Stars Hollow. The new trailer brings back even more familiar faces from the oddball town, so kick off the final countdown to next Friday!
