Tuesday 23rd October 2018
The "emotional yet soaringly beautiful" (Daniel Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter) second season of The Handmaid's Tale comes to DVD 3rd December 2018 from MGM Television and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The 5-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 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 favourite 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 Cherry Jones (The Perfect Storm) and Bradley Whitford (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.
