Breaking from previous years, instead of beginning in April, season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale will start on June 5. The later start date is to maintain the show’s high quality, but it is a bit curious, if only because “the late premiere date pushes The Handmaid’s Tale season three out of contention for the 2019 Emmy Awards, with June 1 as the eligibility cut-off date” (THR).
Comments by show runner Bruce Miller indicate that June will continue on her trek of rebelliousness in a major diversion from the original novel, promising “visceral victories” in season 3.
