The third season of the Emmy®, Golden Globe® and Peabody Award-winning series, THE HANDMAID’S TALE, is driven by titular handmaid June’s (Elisabeth Moss) resistance to the dystopian regime of Gilead, in which she finds herself once again after opting not to flee to Canada with her baby at the end of the second season. Now, she will struggle to strike back against the regime despite overwhelming odds. This season there are startling reunions, betrayals and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead that will force all of the characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: “Blessed be the fight.”
After two intense seasons, the women of Gilead are ready to strike back at the twisted fundamentalist regime that rules Gilead. They’re armed with a plan and will band together to pull off a bold and daring attack. With an exclusive bonus feature entitled “Power Play: Gilead’s Women Fight Back,” get a look at how these women have come into their power and what this means for the future of Gilead. Serena Joy is done trying to be the dutiful wife and goes against her husband (and Gilead) in order to get what she truly wants (her daughter Nicole) and June is done playing by Gilead’s rules. She has made alliances with her new Commander and the Martha network in order to save the children living in Gilead.
