Praise be, we're getting a second season of The Handmaid's Tale. Hot on the heels of their big wins at the Golden Globes, the team behind The Handmaid's Tale hit the stage at the TCAs this week to talk Season 2 -- announcing a premiere date and releasing a trailer.

The bleak Hulu adaptation of Margaret Atwood's novel The Handmaid's Tale was a huge success for the streaming network in 2017, and now we've got a premiere date for Season 2. We'll return to Gilead on April 25 with two new episodes of the 13-episode season. A new episode will be released every Wednesday the weeks following.

Check out just how dire it's getting during Season 2 in the trailer below: 

In the sneak peek we can see more pre-handmaid life along with the increasingly dangerous life of handmaids who seek to resist oppression. Recently released photos from Season 2 give some insight into what we can expect, including a trip to the colonies, a funeral, and a bloodied Offred, aka June, played by Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The West Wing). Moss won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of a handmaid living in the world of Gilead, a dystopian totalitarian land in Season 1 of the show.

Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale will be available on Hulu beginning April 25. May the Lord open.
