Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 CONFIRMED for Late 2022 Release Date

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 is confirmed and will be released very soon. After the release of season 4, fans have been wondering if there is a fifth season of the series. Then the answer is yes! The fifth installment of the series is on its way and will be released very soon. Let’s discuss more details in this article. 

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 was confirmed even before the release of the fourth season. In December 2020, The Handmaid’s Tale cast members revealed that the fifth season of the series would be happening and there is still a lot left in the bag for fans. Well, this is surely good news for The Handmaid’s Tale fans. Even though the series is considered a bit depressing, fans still shower their love on the show. However, no release date of the fifth season has been announced yet. It is being said that the fifth installment is in production and would be released very soon. So we can assume that The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 is going to be released in 2022 but it’s not happening in February. Due to the pandemic, the series has already suffered a lot of delays. Some fans are afraid of the show being abruptly stopped. However, this may not be the possibility as the series deserves a good ending. 

According to several sources, it is being said that The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 is going to be all about June’s Journey and there might be a possibility of her getting back to Hannah. But there is no confirmation about the plot of the fifth season yet. Recently actress Ann Dowd revealed that not just one but two seasons of the Handmaid’s Tale is left. This means that not just a fifth but there is also a sixth season of the series. Well, this is great news. This clearly indicates that the show would continue for quite a long time and we should be expecting a sixth season as well. 

Sadly, as of February 2022, there is no confirmed date for when The Handmaid’s Tale will be back on our screens. However, it’s believed the show is back in its filming location of Ontario, Canada, to start production. A filming notice for the Brantford area has noted a show with the title Ruby Road will be shooting in the area from February 14 through to March. It’s believed that Ruby Road is the production name of The Handmaid’s Tale (Ruby red like the Handmaid’s cloaks… get it?)

On February 9, Amanda Brugel also shared a video back on set, with the clip marked ‘season 5’ and showing a chair that said her character’s name, Rita.
