Hulu has announced during their NYC upfront today that they have renewed their original drama series adaption THE HANDMAID’S TALE for a season 2! New episodes will premiere in 2018.

Produced by MGM Television and starring Elisabeth Moss, based on the award-winning, bestselling novel by Margaret Atwood, THE HANDMAID’S TALE premiered on April 26 and has been watched by more viewers than any other series debut– original or acquired– on the service.

Craig Erich, SVP and Head of Content said:

“The response we’ve seen to THE HANDMAID’S TALE in just one week since its premiere has been absolutely incredible. It has been an honor to work with this talented team of cast and creators to develop a series that has struck such a chord with audiences across the country. As we continue to expand our strong slate of original programming, THE HANDMAID’S TALE is exactly the type of gripping and thought-provoking storytelling we want to bring to viewers. We can’t wait to explore the world of Gilead and continue Margaret’s vision with another season on Hulu.”

THE HANDMAID’S TALE tells the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States.

Created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller with Warren Littlefield, who also executive produces and Margaret Atwood serves as a consulting producer.

The series is produced by MGM Television and marks the first collaboration for an original series between Hulu and MGM.
