The Handmaid’s Tale, the hit TV series based on Margaret Atwood‘s game-changing novel, hasn’t provided full resolution for its central characters. After two seasons, the oppressed underclass of women like June / Offred (Elisabeth Moss) and Emily / Ofglen (Alexis Bledel) are yet to overthrow the patriarchal theocra-hell they live in.
But the first trailer for Season 3, which will premiere June 6 on SBS, sprinkles just a little hope onto what is an otherwise dire situation.
“Heresy, that’s what you get punished for,” June says.
“Not for being part of the resistance, because officially, there is no resistance. Not for helping people escape, because officially, there’s no such thing as escape.”
Meanwhile, the footage suggests escape is possible. Alliances are formed, furtive glance are shared, and there’s at least one shot involving a set of angelic wings. Subtle.
