There’s no release date confirmed for The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 yet. However, filming on the show has started as cast member Amanda Brugel, who plays Rita in the show, shared the update on her Instagram account. She posted a video in February 2022 featuring her on set for season five.

Filming notices also went up in Ontario, Canada, where the series is shot. Under the code name Ruby Red, which is believed to be The Handmaid’s Tale, these suggested filming would take place in Brantford from February until March 2022.

Generally, there has been about seven to eight months between filming beginning and series premiere dates on the show. Season 1 went into production in September 2016 before premiering in April 2017, season 2 started filming in fall 2017 before a April 2018 release while season 3 began production in October 2018 and came out on Hulu in June 2019. Season 4 was a bit of an anomaly as it was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic delaying filming, post-production and release.

Based on previous release schedules we could be looking at seeing season 5 on Hulu as early as fall 2022 after filming began in February 2022. We’ll keep you updated as soon as any more is announced about its release date.

Spoilers for previous seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale ahead!

While no official plot details have yet been released, the dramatic ending of The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 gives us a good idea about where the show might go next. If you need a quick refresher, it ended with June and other Gilead survivors beating Fred Waterford to death in the woods.

Moira star Samira Wiley has confirmed this is where the show will pick up when it returns. Speaking on The View, she said: “We’re picking up really exactly where we left off. Everyone who saw the season finale knows what happened with Commander Waterford. And so June, as always, is in a bit of trouble.” She also confirmed that June will still be in Canada in the new series, as she works out how to take Gilead down from there.

Moss teased to TVLine: “I will say that the season itself is possibly one of the wilder rides that we’ve had. We’ve definitely had some seasons [where], you know, a lot happens. Some seasons, not as much happens. I almost can’t keep up with [season 5]. And it’s not lip service. I truly mean I almost can’t keep up with the amount of activity that’s happening.”

We’ll also be moving ever closer to The Testaments, which is Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. Hulu has confirmed they’ll be adapting the novel in the future, which is set a decade after the first book. Head of scripted originals at Hulu Jordan Helman has previously spoken about how it will be linked to The Handmaid’s Tale. He told Deadline: “The birth of The Testaments on Hulu and the eventual end of The Handmaid’s Tale are related.”

Most of the main cast are expected to be returning for The Handmaid’s Tale season 5. That means we should expect Moss back as June, alongside Alexis Bledel as Emily, Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia, O-T Fagbenle as Luke, Max Minghella as Nick, Wiley as Moira, Bradley Whitford as Commander Lawrence, Brugel as Rita, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Waterford and Madeline Brewer as Janine.

We also expect to see some of the new additions in season 4 back as well. Mckenna Grace is thought to be coming back as Mrs Keyes, after she made an impact in Gilead. The star is well known for her starring role in Netflix’s Sabrina reboot.

Of course, Joseph Fiennes will likely have a reduced role on the show after Commander Waterford’s grisly murder in season 4. However, we could see him back in flashbacks, as showrunner Bruce Miller teased to Entertainment Weekly: “I would die if I didn’t see Joe [Fiennes] again.”

No, sadly there’s no The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 trailer just yet. This is because the show is currently being filmed. In the past, we’ve seen footage of the new show a few months before release so keep your eyes peeled for later in 2022.
