Hulu has released a brand-new trailer for Season 2 of the Emmy-and-Golden-Globe-winning series "The Handmaid's Tale."

Slated to return next month, the hit streaming thriller stars Emmy-winner Elisabeth Moss as an oppressed pregnant woman trying to survive in a theocratic government system where women have been stripped of all their rights.

Based on the classic award-winning dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood, who also serves as a writing consultant and supervising producer on the Hulu series, Season 2 will further expand Atwood's fictional universe as Season 1 has already depicted all the major events in the original source material.

Co-starring Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Ann Dowd, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Max Minghella, and Madeline Brewer, "The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2" will start streaming on Hulu Wednesday, April 25th.

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.
