Hulu Plans Handmaids Tale Sequel Series

MGM Television and Hulu are developing “The Testaments,” a series adaptation of author Margaret Atwood’s upcoming sequel novel to her dystopian bestseller “The Handmaid’s Tale”.

“Handmaid” showrunner Bruce Miller is talking with the studio about how the upcoming novel can become an extension/spin-off to the main series which was recently picked up for a fourth season by Hulu.

“The Testaments” book, releasing next week, picks up more than fifteen years after Offred’s final scene in “The Handmaid’s Tale” novel and is narrated by three female characters.

MGM Television previously acquired the rights to Atwood’s 2015 novel “The Heart Goes Last” about a young couple who have been hit by job loss and bankruptcy in the midst of a nationwide economic collapse.
