The second season of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” will be released on Blu-ray and DVD Dec. 4 from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
The four-disc set will includes all 13 episodes, as well as two new featurettes: “Season Two: Off Book” and “Dressing Dystopia.”
The second season is shaped by the pregnancy of Offred (Elisabeth Moss) and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead.
The cast includes Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, Max Minghella, Samira Wiley, Amanda Brugel, Cherry Jones and Bradley Whitford.
Season one of “The Handmaid’s Tale” will be released March 13 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc from MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
“Handmaid’s Tale” became the first show from a streaming service to win an Emmy for Best Drama Series. The show ended up winning eight Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and three Critics Choice Awards.
The three-disc set of the first season includes two new featurettes that take viewers deeper into the world of the dystopian society of Gilead.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s best-selling novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which begins streaming its second season on Hulu April 25, is the story of life in a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Golden Globe- and Emmy-winner Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the castes of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world.
Extra features include “From Script to Screen,” in which viewers can go inside the premiere episode’s harrowing scene where Handmaids violently participate in the execution of an alleged attacker, and “Hope in Gilead,” which examines the reasons why the book and series has captivated millions and become a cultural phenomenon.
