It has been reported by Deadline that the season 4 premiere episode of The Handmaid’s Tale is Hulu’s most-watched original debut ever.

What’s Happening:

  • Deadline has reported that The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 premiere episode has become the most-watched original ever on Hulu during the course of a week.
  • The series has been adapted from the novel by Margaret Atwood, a story of life in the totalitarian society of Gilead in what was formerly the United States. Offred/June (Elizabeth Moss) is struggling to survive as a reproductive surrogate for a powerful commander in the republic.

  • In season four, June strikes back against Gilead as a fierce rebel leader, but the risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges. Her quest for justice and revenge threatens to consume her and destroy her most cherished relationships.
  • The Handmaid’s Tale was renewed for a fifth season back in December, so you can look forward to more from the series as it continues.
  • Hulu reported last year that the romantic comedy Happiest Season, which was acquired by the service from Sony, was the most-watched film ever on a given weekend.
