The revolution doesn't officially exist in S3 trailer for The Handmaid's Tale

By Jacob Oller
Elisabeth Moss The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Hulu

After filming in Washington, D.C., The Handmaid’s Tale was always going to have a frighteningly realistic and far too close to home third season of dystopian drama. After a Super Bowl teaser that focused on fighting back more than the straight-up survival of Margaret Atwood's scary take on America, fans of Offred and the others in Gilead finally get a better look at what’s coming next.

Subtext, subtlety, and a crescendoing resistance all break through in the show’s first trailer for its third, revolutionary season — all led by Elisabeth Moss. With new allies and stronger relationships, the footage teases “the birth of a revolution” all while Moss’ voiceover refuses to acknowledge that any of this really exists at all — at least, officially.

That’s a lot of angelic imagery alongside lots of violence and an increasing camaraderie with Yvonne Strahovski’s Serena Joy Waterford. Who doesn’t like a nice smoke after kickstarting a coup?

Hulu also released a kickass image of the show’s women looking ready for a brawl.
