The “emotional yet soaringly beautiful” (Daniel Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter) second season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” comes to Blu-ray and DVD December 4th from MGM Television and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The 4-disc set includes all 13 heart-stopping episodes, as well as two brand new featurettes that take the viewers beyond the pages of Margaret Atwood’s award-winning, best-selling novel.
The Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth. Standout performances were given by returning cast members including Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, Max Minghella, Samira Wiley and Amanda Brugel. Moss, Wiley, Bledel and Dowd have all won Emmy Awards for their performances in the series. Season Two of the series garnered three Emmy Awards.
This season also included notable guest appearances from Emmy Award winners Cherry Jones (Fox’s “24”, Signs, The Perfect Storm) and Bradley Whitford (NBC’s “The West Wing”, Get Out), as well as Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler).
The series was created for television by Bruce Miller. Season Two was executive produced by Bruce Miller, Warren Littlefield, Elisabeth Moss, Daniel Wilson, and Fran Sears. The series is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.
