The series was nominated for 13 Emmys and won eight including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Ann Dowd), Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Reed Morano), Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series (Bruce Miller), Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (Alexis Bledel), and Outstanding Drama Series.
What was hinted at in Atwood's novel can now be fully realized in The Handmaid's Tale season 2.
That trend continued at the recent Golden Globes where the show went on to win for Best Drama TV Series (in competition against the likes of Game of Thrones and The Crown) as well as another best Actress in a TV Drama award for Moss. "You sort of intimidate yourself", Miller said on the subject. "Instead, you just have to do not forget to try and tell a good story". Well, she's definitely alive, if not caked with blood (see below).
What is known about the new season, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, is that the series will begin to explore those who have been able to escape captivity. Seeing as how those issues are extending into 2018, The Handmaid's Tale is a great show for exploring similar issues in a dramatized environment.
As fans remember, season one ended with Offred's (Elisabeth Moss) fate up in the air. But one of the scenes that Miller is most excited to share is that of a handmaid's funeral in Gilead, which offers some of the most striking imagery from the series.
