June Osborne (played by Elisabeth Moss) is one of the most anticipated series on Amazon Prime. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the renewal of series for the fourth season. The series was confirmed for renewal last year itself. This is going to be the best season of The Handmaid’s Tale, and it was confirmed for release in July 2019. This is the reason why fans were waiting, but the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the release date and now everything boils down to government’s ease in the regulation of public affairs.
So let’s see the details of the fourth season and the possible release date of the fourth season.
Do we have the release date of the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale?
As of now, we don’t have details on the series. The series was renewed in July 2019, and fans were expecting the series by May 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has halted almost all the work. The whole world is trapped inside their homes, and this is the potential reason for the delay in airing the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale. We are expecting the series to release this fall, and it seems to be confirmed as lockdown measures are eased.
In an Instagram post, Elisabeth Moss said that the filming is further delayed, and it is going to be late due to COVID-19 related restrictions in place. The whole world has to maintain social distancing, and this is going to be a substantial shift from our earlier public place interactions. So there is a chance that the series may end up delaying a bit more if the strict lockdown measures are there in the place. Although she seems disappointed with the delay, she straightened her priorities, and she kept the safety of the crew in the first place.
Her Instagram post was, “We shut down production of season four to preserve the health and safety of our cast and crew and join the world in an attempt to flatten the curve. We hope to be back in production work as soon as it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy and take care of yourselves. So much love from our family to yours.”
The cast of the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale season 4
The casting team hasn’t said anything about the addition of new members to the cast. So we are expecting that there is no additional member in the cast. It is expected to include Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne, Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena, Joseph Fiennes as Commander Waterford, O.T. Fagbenle as Luke, Alexis Bledel as Emily and Joseph Fiennes. One important info on the cast is that Rita (played by Amanda Brugel) won’t be returning to the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale.
