As a handmaid, June is renamed Offred. This is her story. The fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale was originally expected to arrive in fall Then the coronavirus hit just as Season 4 filming got underway back in March, forcing a delay. Hulu still. The Handmaid’s Tale, acclaimed dystopian novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood, published in The book, set in New England in the near future, posits a Christian fundamentalist theocratic regime in the former United States that arose as a response to a fertility crisis. The Handmaid's Tale spoilers are particularly hard to come by (especially since the gap between Seasons 3 and 4 will be so long), but here's everything we know about what's coming our way next.
Moira has been a close friend of Offred's since college. In the novel, their relationship represents a female friendship that the Republic of Gilead tries to block.
A lesbian, she has resisted the homophobia of Gilead society. Moira is taken to be a Handmaid soon after Offred.
She escapes by stealing an Aunt's pass and clothes, but Offred later finds her working as a prostitute in a party-run brothel. She was caught and chose the brothel rather than to be sent to the Colonies.
Moira exemplifies defiance against Gilead by rejecting every value that is forced onto the citizens. Luke was Offred's husband before the formation of Gilead, having divorced his first wife to marry her.
Under Gilead, all divorces were retroactively nullified, resulting in Offred being considered an adulteress and their daughter illegitimate.
Offred was forced to become a Handmaid and her daughter was given to a loyalist family. Since their attempt to escape to Canada, Offred has heard nothing of Luke.
She wavers between believing him dead or imprisoned. Pieixoto is the "co-discoverer [with Professor Knotly Wade] of Offred's tapes". In his presentation at an academic conference, he talks about "the 'Problems of Authentication in Reference to The Handmaid's Tale ' ".
The novel is set in an indeterminate dystopian future, speculated to be around the year ,  with a fundamentalist theonomy ruling the territory of what had been the United States but is now the Republic of Gilead.
Individuals are segregated by categories and dressed according to their social functions. Complex dress codes play a key role in imposing social control within the new society and serve to distinguish people by sex, occupation, and caste.
The action takes place in what once was the Harvard Square neighbourhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts ;   Atwood studied at Radcliffe College , located in this area.
In Gilead, the bodies of fertile women are politicized and controlled. The North American population is falling as more men and women become infertile though in Gilead, legally, it is only women who can be the cause of infertility.
Gilead's treatment of women is based upon a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible, meaning that women are the property of and subordinate to their husband, father, or head of household.
They are not allowed to do anything that would grant them any power independent of this system. They are not allowed to vote, hold a job, read, possess money, or own anything, among many other restrictions.
A particular quote from The Handmaid's Tale sums this up: "The Republic of Gilead, said Aunt Lydia, knows no bounds. Gilead is within you" HT 5. This describes that there is no way around the societal bounds of women in this new state of government.
Handmaids, being not allowed to wed, are given two-year assignments with a commander, and lose their own name: they are called "Of [their Commander's first name]", such as the novel's protagonist, known only as Offred.
When a handmaid is reassigned, her name changes with her. Their original identities are suppressed. However, while being re-educated as handmaids, they surreptitiously share their names with each other.
In this book, the government appears to be strong though "no one in Gilead seems to be a true believer in its revolution" Beauchamp. The Commanders, portrayed via Commander Fred, do not agree with their own doctrines.
The commander takes Offred at one point to a brothel in order to have sex with her in an informal setting apart from the Ceremony.
The wives, portrayed via Serena Joy, former television evangelist, disobey the rules set forth by their commander husbands.
Serena smokes black market cigarettes, expresses the forbidden idea that men may be infertile, and schemes to get Offred impregnated by her chauffeur.
Christian churches that do not support the actions of the Sons of Jacob are systematically demolished, and the people living in Gilead are never seen attending church.
Priests unwilling to convert are executed and hanged from the Wall. Atwood pits Quaker Christians against the regime by having them help the oppressed, something she feels they would do in reality: "The Quakers have gone underground, and are running an escape route to Canada, as—I suspect—they would.
Jews are named an exception and classified Sons of Jacob. Offred observes that Jews refusing to convert are allowed to emigrate from Gilead to Israel, and most choose to leave.
However, in the epilogue, Professor Pieixoto reveals that many of the emigrating Jews ended up being dumped into the sea while on the ships ostensibly tasked with transporting them to Israel, due to privatization of the "repatriation program" and capitalists' effort to maximize profits.
Offred mentions that many Jews who chose to stay were caught secretly practicing Judaism and executed. The division of labour among the women generates some resentment.
Marthas, Wives and Econowives perceive Handmaids as promiscuous and are taught to scorn them. Offred mourns that the women of the various groups have lost their ability to empathize with each other.
They are divided in their oppression. The ritual requires the Handmaid to lie on her back between the legs of the Wife during the sex act as if they were one person.
The Wife has to invite the Handmaid to share her power this way; many Wives consider this both humiliating and offensive.
Offred describes the ceremony:. My red skirt is hitched up to my waist, though no higher. Below it the Commander is fucking. What he is fucking is the lower part of my body.
I do not say making love, because this is not what he's doing. Copulating too would be inaccurate because it would imply two people and only one is involved.
Nor does rape cover it: nothing is going on here that I haven't signed up for. In , reviewers hailed the book as a "feminist , "  citing similarities between the totalitarian regimes under which both protagonists live, and "the distinctively modern sense of nightmare come true, the initial paralyzed powerlessness of the victim unable to act.
The classification of utopian and dystopian fiction as a sub-genre of the collective term, speculative fiction , alongside science fiction , fantasy , and horror is a relatively recent convention.
See also: The Internet Speculative Fiction Database Dystopian novels have long been discussed as a type of science fiction, however, with publication of The Handmaid's Tale, Atwood distinguished the terms science fiction and speculative fiction quite intentionally.
In interviews and essays, she has discussed why, observing:. I like to make a distinction between science fiction proper and speculative fiction.
For me, the science fiction label belongs on books with things in them that we can't yet do, such as going through a wormhole in space to another universe; and speculative fiction means a work that employs the means already to hand, such as DNA identification and credit cards, and that takes place on Planet Earth.
But the terms are fluid. Atwood acknowledges that others may use the terms interchangeably, but she notes her interest in this type of work is to explore themes in ways that " realistic fiction" cannot do.
Among a few science fiction aficionados, however, Atwood's comments were considered petty and contemptuous. The term speculative fiction was indeed employed that way by certain New Wave writers in the s and early s to express their dissatisfaction with traditional or establishment science fiction.
Hugo-winning science fiction critic David Langford observed in a column: " The Handmaid's Tale won the very first Arthur C. Clarke Award in She's been trying to live this down ever since.
The Handmaid's Tale was well received by critics, helping to cement Atwood's status as a prominent writer of the 20th century. Not only was the book deemed well-written and compelling, but Atwood's work was notable for sparking intense debates both in and out of academia.
Even today, many reviewers hold that Atwood's novel remains as foreboding and powerful as ever, largely because of its basis in historical fact.
For example, Mary McCarthy's New York Times review argued that The Handmaid's Tale lacked the "surprised recognition" necessary for readers to see "our present selves in a distorting mirror, of what we may be turning into if current trends are allowed to continue".
The television series led to debate on whether parallels could be drawn between the series and book and American society under the presidency of Donald Trump.
Much of the discussion about The Handmaid's Tale has centered on its categorization as feminist literature. Atwood does not see the Republic of Gilead as a purely feminist dystopia, as not all men have greater rights than women.
When asked about whether her book was feminist, Atwood stated that the presence of women and what happens to them are important to the structure and theme of the book.
This aisle of feminism, by default, would make a lot of books feminist. However, she was adamant in her stance that her book did not represent the brand of feminism that victimizes or strips women of moral choice.
Some scholars have offered such a feminist interpretation, however, connecting Atwood's use of religious fundamentalism in the pages of The Handmaid's Tale to a condemnation of their presence in current American society.
Aisha Matthews tackles the effects of institutional structures that oppress woman and womanhood and connects those to the themes present in The Handmaid's Tale.
She first asserts that structures and social frameworks, such as the patriarchy and societal role of traditional Christian values, are inherently detrimental to the liberation of womanhood.
She then makes the connection to the relationship between Offred, Serena Joy, and their Commander, explaining that through this "perversion of traditional marriage, the Biblical story of Rachel, Jacob, and Bilhah is taken too literally.
The sexes are strictly divided. Gilead's society values white women's reproductive commodities over those of other ethnicities. Women are categorized "hierarchically according to class status and reproductive capacity" as well as " metonymically colour-coded according to their function and their labour" Kauffman The Commander expresses his personal opinion that women are considered inferior to men, as the men are in a position where they have power to control society.
Women are segregated by clothing, as are men. With rare exception, men wear military or paramilitary uniforms. All classes of men and women are defined by the colours they wear, drawing on colour symbolism and psychology.
All lower-status individuals are regulated by this dress code. All "non-persons" are banished to the "Colonies".
Sterile, unmarried women are considered to be non-persons. Both men and women sent there wear grey dresses. The women, particularly the handmaids, are stripped of their individual identities as they lack formal names, taking on their assigned commander's first name in most cases.
This hierarchical society has forced women to come to terms with their inability to make decisions about their own bodies and lives. Sterile women, the unmarried, some widows, feminists, lesbians, nuns, and politically dissident women: all women who are incapable of social integration within the Republic's strict gender divisions.
Gilead exiles Unwomen to "the Colonies", areas both of agricultural production and deadly pollution. Joining them are handmaids who fail to bear a child after three two-year assignments.
Jezebels are women who are forced to become prostitutes and entertainers. Die Gesellschaft wird von machtversessenen Führern in einem neuen, militarisierten, hierarchischen Regime des Fanatismus und in neu geschaffenen sozialen Klassen organisiert, in denen Frauen brutal und auch mit gezielten Verstümmelungen unterjocht werden und es ihnen unter anderem nicht erlaubt ist zu arbeiten, Eigentum und Geld zu besitzen oder zu lesen.
Wechseln die Frauen zum Beispiel nach dem Tod des Mannes den Besitzer, so müssen sie den Namen des neuen Mannes annehmen, wie zum Beispiel Desglen , die zu Dessteven wird.
June wird in der ersten Staffel in der dystopischen Zukunft Eigentum des hochrangigen Beamten Fred Waterford und lebt fortan als Dienstmagd Desfred in der Villa, in der er mit seiner empfängnisunfähigen Frau Serena Joy wohnt.
Die Zeremonien, in denen Fred versucht, Desfred zu schwängern, verlaufen wenig erfolgreich und lassen Serena vermuten, dass er zeugungsunfähig ist.
Deshalb wird Desfred von Serena dazu aufgefordert, sich von Nick, dem Chauffeur der Waterfords, schwängern zu lassen. Daraufhin geht Desfred mit Nick eine Intimbeziehung ein, die sie zunehmend leidenschaftlich führen.
Parallel dazu erhält Desfred aber, unbemerkt von seiner Frau, auch von Fred Avancen und hat mit ihm Sex. Angesichts dieser Beziehung beendet Nick sein Verhältnis mit Desfred, ehe sie bemerkt, dass sie schwanger ist.
Wenig später zwingt die Aufseherin, die Tante Lydia genannt wird, Desfred und andere Dienstmägde dazu, eine Dienstmagd zur Strafe für ihre Ungehorsamkeit zu Tode zu steinigen.
In einem Akt kollektiven Ungehorsams weigern sich die Frauen jedoch, ihr Folge zu leisten. Rückblenden in der ersten Staffel geben Aufschluss über das Leben von June, bevor sie Dienstmagd der Waterfords wurde, und ihrer Vertrauten.
Als die Unterdrückung der Frauen begann, war sie mit Luke, dem Vater ihrer Tochter, auf der Flucht vor den Behörden.
Im Glauben, dass Luke getötet worden wäre, wird sie verhaftet und von ihrer Tochter getrennt. Wie deutlich wird, gelang Luke tatsächlich jedoch die Flucht nach Kanada, wovon June in der dystopischen Zukunft eher zufällig erfährt.
Von dort ausgehend wurde ab der zweiten Staffel die Geschichte frei weiterentwickelt. Margaret Atwood wurde bei der Entwicklung der Serie zu Rate gezogen, um sicherzustellen, dass das Fortschreiben der Geschichte nicht ihren Vorstellungen zuwiderlief.
Beispielsweise bestand Atwood darauf, dass die jüngere Tochter der Hauptfigur überleben muss, da sie deren Lebensgeschichte weitererzählen wollte.
Darin achtete Atwood auf eine Kompatibilität mit der Handlung der Fernsehserie. In einem Interview sagte Atwood, dass ihre weitere Ausgestaltung der Figur Tante Lydia, die in dem Fortsetzungsbuch eine zentrale Rolle spielt, durch Ann Dowds Darstellung in der Fernsehserie geprägt sei.
Die Serie wird bei der Studio Hamburg Synchron vertont. Nadine Geist ist sowohl für Dialogbuch als auch Dialogregie verantwortlich.
