The First Pics From The Second Season of 'The Handmaid's Tale' Are Dark AF Hulu

The first season of The Handmaid's Tale has won a bucketload of awards and this morning, the first pictures from season two dropped online and boy, things are getting dark.

The second season is, according to Hulu, "shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead.

"'Gilead is within you' is a favourite saying of Aunt Lydia.

"In Season 2, Offred and all our characters will fight against — or succumb to — this dark truth."

Sounds very, very creepy... but not as creepy as the photos that have just dropped!

The first picture shows Offred covered in blood and looking either defiant or defeated, we're hoping it's defiant...

The second shows a large crowd of people walking through the countryside and many fans believe that this could be the Colonies, the land that's constantly talked about, but we've never seen...

And the third shows a group of people dressed in red with their faces covered, walking through a graveyard...

Presumably these are handmaids and unfortunately, one of them may have passed away...

The second season of The Handmaid's Tale will be released in the U.S in April this year but there's no word about when it'll be available to us Aussies!

So catch up if you need to!
