‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is One of The Most Anticipated TV Shows in Years!

The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu | Lakeshore Records

Hulu’s upcoming “The Handmaid’s Tale” is one of the most anticipated TV shows in years!  Adapted from Margaret Atwood’s classic novel, the series premieres Wednesday, April 26 only on Hulu.

Here’s what critics are saying:

A faithful adaptation of the book that also brings new layers to Atwood’s totalitarian, sexist world of forced surrogate motherhood, this series is meticulously paced, brutal, visually stunning, and so suspenseful from moment to moment that only at the end of each hour will you feel fully at liberty to exhale. – Jen Chaney, Vulture

This is, in my opinion, the best adaptation to date, and it still stands as a deeply disturbing cautionary tale. We’d be foolish to ignore it. I can’t recommend it more highly. – Michelle Starr, CNET

In all my years of writing about television, no one series has affected me as much as The Handmaid’s Tale. – Alicia Lutes, Nerdist

None of this would work without a great performance at its center, and as Offred, Moss is astonishing. … At every corner, The Handmaid’s Tale brims with invention. – Todd VanDerWerff, Vox.com

This is probably the spring’s best new show and certainly its most important. – Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter

One of the best shows of the year so far, at times hard to watch but impossible to ignore. … [Elisabeth Moss] fully commands each and every moment, every swallowed emotion and thought. – Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWire

As a show, The Handmaid’s Tale is as crisply and elegantly made as anything I’ve seen on TV this year. It manages to bring a dystopian story to life in a way that works as episodic TV, sapping none of the book’s power. This is a show that could work anytime and one that will likely be watched and discussed for years to come. – Daniel D’Addario, Time

Moss’ barely-restrained fury over her new lot in life is gorgeous to behold–the other characters are equally compelling. And when we see moments that Offred simply cannot (one book diversion pertaining to Bledel’s handmaid character, Ofglen, comes to mind), that story amplification pays off. –  Kimberly Roots, TV Line

[Elisabeth Moss’] take-and the show’s take–on the character is a distinct blend of what Atwood once identified as the main thrust of Canadian literature (survival) and a gumption most closely associated with the country Offred once called America. This can cause some tonal clash in the voice-over–the mission statement that closes episode one feels like it belongs in a different show–but it also gives The Handmaid’s Tale the necessary verve for an ongoing series. – Eric Adams, The AV Club
