Fans of the dystopian drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” are on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting news about the release date for Season 6. The series, based on Margaret Atwood’s iconic novel, has kept audiences captivated with its chilling portrayal of a totalitarian society named Gilead.

As viewers look forward to the next installment, speculation and excitement are running high. In this article, we’ll explore what we know so far about “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 6 release date and what might be in store for Offred and the residents of Gilead.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6 Release Date

Season 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale will most likely premiere in late 2024, due to production delays.

Filming was supposed to start in August 2023, but it was pushed back due to the continuing actor strike, which didn’t end until November 2023. Production had not yet resumed at the time of writing.

Seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale have previously taken up to six months to film, so assuming things get back on track by the late 2024 premiere date is still possible if we’re lucky.

Because the sixth season will be the final installment of one of television’s best thriller series, bringing the years-long plot to a dramatic finish, the production team will probably be pushing to get the final installment of the tale out to fans as soon as possible.

Who Will Be the cast of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6?

All major cast members, including Elisabeth Moss as June and Yvonne Strahovski as Serena, are scheduled to return for Season 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale. Here’s the list of expected cast members for The Handmaid’s Tale season 6:

  • Elisabeth Moss as June Osborne
  • Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Waterford
  • Madeline Brewer as Janine
  • Samira Wiley as Moira
  • Bradley Whitford as Commander Lawrence
  • Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia
  • O-T Fagbenle as Luke
  • Max Minghella as Nick
  • Amanda Brugel as Rita

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6 Expected Plot

Season 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale is expected to expand on June and Nick’s romance and involve a showdown between June and Serena.

June and Nick’s romance has been tantalizingly developing over the seasons. Furthermore, season five ended with the indicated dissolution of Nick’s marriage to Rose. He’s still not over June. We doubt that will work well for him.

June and Serena will undoubtedly clash in the finale, especially after June ruthlessly murders Serena’s husband (and June’s former boss). We doubt Serena will forgive and forget after being forced to face Fred’s damaged body.

The season five finale finishes with June and Nicole catching a ride on a train when Luke realizes he won’t be able to sneak past the cops looking for him and turns himself in. Everything comes to a head, of course, when it’s revealed that Serena and Noah are on the same train as June.

Given the development delays, we don’t expect to see a teaser for The Handmaid’s Tale season 6 until at least mid-2024. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer for season 5 below:
