Season 2 of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ looks even darker than ever as the handmaids prepare for a revolution

June is ready to burn this mother f*cker down in the first teaser trailer for Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale season 2. Soundtracked to and eerily beautiful rendition of Buffalo Springfield's 'For What It Is Worth' the city of Gilead is about to be hit with a handmaid revolution.

The trailer sees June (Offred) constrained in the same brown leather mask we saw Emily (Ofglen) put into last season. The handmaid's secret revolution, Mayday looks to have hit some roadblocks, with shots in the trailer suggesting that every character is struggling. Elizabeth Moss has hinted to fans that the second season is filled with surprises. Speaking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Moss said: "I have been saying, about the opening [scene] of season 2, that whatever you think it's going to be - just throw it out. It's gone in a completely different way that I never would have expected."

The tagline for this season is "Whatever is silenced will clamour to be heard," which hints that the handmaids are going to fight back using whatever means necessary. Interestingly, there is a very distinct parallel between The Handmaid's Tale season two and the current sociological climate in the world today, in particular the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements. Both represent groups of women who will not be silenced on gender-specific abuse and harassment. The harsh reality is that The Handmaid's Tale is a fictional dystopia, whereas the tales of sexual assault that have emerged in the past six months are very much real.

The Handmaid's Tale season 2 premieres on Hulu, April 25. Watch the teaser trailer below.
