The Handmaid's Tale season 2 gets a UK air date – and it's coming really soon

Channel 4 has finally confirmed The Handmaid’s Tale season two premiere date in the UK – and we don’t have much longer to wait.

Season two will kick off on Sunday, May 20 at 9pm, which is in line with the first season’s UK airing as that started on May 28 – also around a month after the show had debuted in the US – but unlike the US airing of season two, it won’t be starting with a double bill.

It means UK audiences will be five episodes behind the US, so time to get even more spoiler sensitive if you haven’t been already.

You might want to stock up on tissues too as the season two premiere left fans in tears within minutes when it landed on Hulu last month, opening with a sequence that showed how Aunt Lydia dealt with the Handmaids refusing to stone Janine to death.

Before the season premiered, Moss was teasing that we’d be seeing a more “badass” and “vocal” June/Offred.

“The June that’s narrating isn’t the June we see in the flashbacks, she’s someone who has been to Gilead. So, I’d like to see us moving towards that June,” she explained.

“She gets crushed and reborn a couple of times this season, but she also finds the strength she never knew she had and rises like a phoenix. All season long, she’s finding her own form of resistance.”

The Handmaid’s Tale continues on Hulu in the US every Wednesday and season two starts in the UK on Channel 4 on Sunday, May 20 at 9pm.
