Hulu has released the first trailer for the upcoming second season of their award-winning series "The Handmaid's Tale," starring Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Elisabeth Moss.

Based on the critically acclaimed dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood, the series will be continuing the story of Offred (Moss), a slave woman living in a totalitarian theocracy in what was once the United States where women have been stripped of all their rights, placed in religious training camps and are now forced to work menial jobs. ("Handmaids" are a selected group of women whose sole purpose is to bear the children of their "Commanders.")

The second season will depart from the source material as author Margaret Atwood only wrote one book -- although, Atwood is serving as a writing consultant and supervising producer on the series, which is executive produced by Bruce Miller (The 100, Eureka) alongside Moss.

Co-starring Joseph Fiennes, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, Alexis Bledel, and Samira Wiley, "The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2" will return on April 25th -- with a two-episode premiere on Hulu, with ensuing episodes to be released every Wednesday from there on.

synopsis:
Adapted from Margaret Atwood's influential and acclaimed novel, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted religious fundamentalism that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead -- all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
