Beware, spoilers!

Already on June 5, the primary sequence of The Handmaid's Story (Elizabeth Moss) starring the sequence can be launched. SPLETNIK.RU because of the service Videoomore I watched the primary three episodes and is able to share my impressions with you.

Within the earlier sequence

Earlier than we speak in regards to the third season, let's recall a quick abstract of the 2 earlier ones. On the coronary heart of the sequence is the eponymous dystopian novel Margaret Atwood. Its motion takes place within the close to future, the place the state of Gilead was fashioned on the territory of the USA, which is a pseudo-religious theocracy. Ladies who’re in a position to have a baby (and infertility has virtually grow to be the principle downside of humanity) are kidnapped and changed into maidservants for native officers and officers and make surrogate moms of them.

The primary heroine June (performed by Elizabeth Moss) was certainly one of them. Separated from her husband and daughter, she discovered herself in the home of Fred Waterford (character of Joseph Fiennes) and his spouse Serena (heroine Yvonne Strahovski). She, like different maids, was abused and mistreated, however was pressured to endure the abuse of her masters. Quickly she had an affair with Commander Waterford driver Nick Blaine (Max Minghella's character), from whom she turned pregnant. The try to flee from Gilead, alas, led to failure for her – she returned to the home of the commander and gave delivery to a baby.

Throughout this time, June managed to make pals and allies, who, like her, most of all wished to take revenge on their offenders and destroy the brand new authorities. On the finish of the second season, June helps her good friend Emily (Alexis Bledel) escape together with her new child daughter, and he or she decides to remain to save lots of her older daughter, who can also be in Gilead and lives in a wierd household.

With every new episode, the transformation of June's picture turns into increasingly more apparent: if within the first season she seems to be a servant who is able to tolerate any bullying by the commander, now she is a lady who is just not afraid to talk and act and is ready to lead a insurrection and make a revolution.

It will likely be a season about resistance. About resisting and preventing June. After a few seasons during which she was crushed, she had sufficient of her. She is going to search for methods to insurgent in opposition to,

– Says the showrunner of the sequence Bruce Miller.

After an unsuccessful try to take the eldest daughter from her new household and escape together with her from Gilead, June leaves Fred Waterford’s residence and finds herself on the command of Commander Lawrence (the hero of Bradley Whitford). This character, who appeared on the finish of the second season, nonetheless appears mysterious and contradictory.

Within the third season, clearly, he’ll play a key position. Although Lawrence appears relatively harsh and strict, he, although not very willingly (no less than it seems like this), continues to assist the maids.

I feel we are going to study so much about him. You by no means know what to anticipate from him

– says Miller.

It will likely be attention-grabbing to see how the picture of Serena Waterford, the heroine of Yvonne Strahovski, will change within the third season. Initially supporting the legal guidelines of Gilead, directed in opposition to ladies and infringing on their rights, she now appeared to see the sunshine and is able to take the aspect of the maidservants herself. Her picture is altering noticeably. For 2 seasons, she struggled with herself: first, she tried in each approach to kill the pity, kindness and compassion in herself, which, because it turned out, weren’t alien, and now, realizing that she couldn’t be a winner on this battle, she was prepared many sacrifice for the great of others.

Surprising for viewers would be the return of Aunt Lydia (Ann Daud), who final season Emily stabbed within the again and pushed her down the steps. Nevertheless, she survived and is able to proceed to mock her pupils.

One other noticeable transformation occurred with the heroine Alexis Bledel. If June Gilead made stronger, then Emily, quite the opposite, badly broke. Fearless and brave, he crippled her not solely bodily, but in addition morally (she was blind in a single eye). Returning to Canada has grow to be fairly troublesome for her – it’s nonetheless troublesome for her to adapt to the brand new outdated life. Now she seems utterly misplaced and damaged.


Main modifications within the solid won’t occur. Nevertheless, they are going to seem within the third season, which is able to include 13 episodes, and new characters – Commander Winslow and his spouse Mrs Winslow. They are going to be performed by Christopher Meloni, acquainted to the viewers from the movies "Communication", "12 Monkeys" and "Worry and Loathing in Las Vegas", and Elizabeth Reaser, starring within the film "Twilight" and the TV sequence "Actual Detective", "Anatomy of Ardour" and "Good spouse".

Commander Winslow and his partner will take the Waterford couple on certainly one of their necessary journeys, and Mrs. Winslow can be pals with Serena.

Viewers expectations

Although the primary season of the sequence turned out to be very profitable (to his credit score – six Emmy awards), and the second obtained excessive marks from critics, not all viewers imagine within the success of the third season of the present. In accordance with some followers of multi-part tape, the sequence has grow to be extra protracted and boring.

Nevertheless, the producers of The Story of a Handmaid are assured that curiosity within the tape will solely develop. So, Bruce Miller not too long ago introduced that he plans to shoot 10 seasons of the present.
