The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6: Latest News, Rumours & Release date

    The Handmaid’s Tale has already caught the audience’s attention with its superb cast, unique characters, and twisting storyline. The previous five seasons were great enough to win over audiences’ hearts, who are now waiting for the sixth season to hit screens and unravel some new aspects of the original storyline.

    If you belong to the same group of people, look no further because you have landed on the right page. Keep reading, and the forthcoming content will illuminate all the rumoured news about The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6.

    When will Handmaid’s Tale season 6 be out?

    The most important and commonly asked question about the tale season is related to its Season 6 arrival. Whether it is the official platform or the fan pages on social media, viewers have witnessed asking a bunch of questions about the show launch.

    Well, the filming started in late autumn of 2023. However, the SAG-AFTRA pushed that back for unknown reasons — mainly concerned with the technicalities. In February 2024, the head of Disney announced that The Handmaid’s Tale was coming on the screens in the summer of 2025.

    This is about a 12-month window from now. However, no announcement was made about the deadline. Due to the uncertain situation, the production process might be delayed, causing delays in the release of season 6..

    The Handmaid’s Tale Series Cast

    Next, viewers are concerned about seeing the beloved faces to which they are attached by past seasons. The good news for those is that the significant cast of the old seasons, including Elisabeth Moss, Yvonne Strahovski, Madeline Brewer, Max Minghella, OT Fagbenle, and Ann Dowed, will be reprising their roles in the upcoming season.

    However, no official announcement has been made in this regard to Season 6. At the same time, there is one significant change. The actress Alexis Bledel, who played Emily in the past seasons, has announced her leave from the upcoming season. 

    Hence, the fans might have to adjust to the plot twist. Or a new actor within the same character will be introduced depending upon the maker’s choice. Again, an official announcement has yet to be made regarding the matter.

    The fans would be witnessing a lot of changes over the season. So be prepared for new faces entering the venture and capturing your heart with their performances and unique storylines.

    What will be the plot of The Handmaid’s Season 6?

    At the end of season 5, viewers were in awe of three questions discussed as follows.

    • Will June and Nick be together in season 6?
    • Did June make it to safety at the end? Is she okay?
    • Will anyone in the group be able to bring down Gilead once and for all?

    The rumoured answer to the second question is yes. June did make it to safety, and this season, she would be figuring out who she is and what she will be doing for the rest of her life. Hence, the audience can expect to learn more about June’s personality, goals, concerns, etc, in the series.

    There might be some changes in the show’s direction because Bruce Miller is a big fan of spin-offs. However, think of loading less fan-favorite characters such as Moira and Rita under this change of direction.

     At the same time, expect to witness multiple flashbacks shedding light upon all the leashed and covered parts that were significantly not exposed by the makers to be used at the right time.

    How will The Handmaid’s Tale Set Up Testaments

    We have already discussed that Miller is a fan of spin-off series and likes to adopt the techniques into his creations. We can expect to see some plot points dealing with multiple characters at different places.

    He said, “I don’t think that we are obliged by anything to tie up the entire plot of Gilead. Especially not because we have stopped the sequel from appearing in the Testaments. Hence, we have the opportunity to continue the story.”

    Disney’s Craige told us about the deadline and that it might be an extension to the franchise as we have a very robust slate for which we are enthusiastic. Hence, the fans may have to wait longer for in-depth details.

    Where to watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6?

    No official announcements are made related to the availability status. However, as all the other seasons are available on Amazon Prime, we expect the season to be on the same platform.
