Social fiction is rarely included in popular large-scale projects. More often, these are low-budget films, focused only on certain groups of true connoisseurs of the genre. The more noticeable are the exceptions to this rule, one of which is the series about the theocratic totalitarian state of Gilead, broadcast by the Hulu channel. The first parts of the project were a resounding success, and now the creators announced the release date of The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 episode 1.
The exact release date of “The Handmaid’s Tale” season 4, with a schedule of all series, can be seen below.
The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 Plot
As a result of the coup, the Gilead Republic emerged in the United States. The military comes to power, establishing theocratic totalitarianism. Women are recognized as “the vessel of sin” and are deprived of all constitutional rights. Now, only men can own property, including bank accounts, hold the vast majority of positions and pursue education. Women are not even allowed to read.
Of course, such a severe restriction of freedoms causes a wave of discontent. But the new government is not ceremonial with the opposition. All attempts at revolt are brutally suppressed, and roadblocks are set up on the streets. The death penalty is imposed for most crimes. Only minor offenses are softer punished: amputation of a finger or brush, or exile to camps in poisoned lands. The release date of “The Handmaid’s Tale” season 4 will reveal even more atrocities invented by the new rulers to intimidate their own people.
By the time the events of the series took place, the environmental situation had deteriorated so much that it affected the health of the entire population. Only 1% of the population retained the ability to conceive children. At the same time, the government diligently conceals the fact that infertility has also affected men: only women are blamed for the decline in fertility rates. Propaganda claims that this is God’s punishment for women’s sinfulness.
Women from the middle and lower strata of society who have retained their fertility skills are removed from their families and sent to training centers for maids. But their real task is not cleaning houses or serving the families of officials and the military. Women are used as surrogate mothers if the wife of the master cannot conceive and give birth herself. Those who try to protest or flee find themselves in camps.
The plot of the series is the story of one of these women. Living in a democratic society, a coup, an attempt to flee to neighboring Canada and detention at the border. The hell that followed and the birth of a new child is already in the family of the rapist’s owner. Now fans are waiting for The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 to come out to find out how its story will end.
