The “emotional yet soaringly beautiful” (Daniel Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter) second season of The Handmaid’s Tale comes to DVD on December 3. The 5-disc set includes all 13 heart-stopping episodes, as well as two brand new featurettes that take the viewers beyond the pages of Margaret Atwood’s award-winning, best-selling novel.
The Golden Globe® award-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) 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 Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth. Standout performances were given by returning cast members including Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, Max Minghella, Samira Wiley and Amanda Brugel. Moss, Wiley, Bledel and Dowd have all won Emmy® Awards for their performances in the series. Season Two of the series garnered three Emmy® Awards.
This season also included notable guest appearances from Cherry Jones (The Perfect Storm) and Bradley Whitford (Get Out), as well as Academy Award® winner Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler).
The Handmaiden’s Tale is on DVD from December 3.
