Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama has released its first trailer for season two, and the terrifying trailer alone has already disturbed viewers. The story follows June (Elisabeth Moss), a 'Handmaid' who is forced to bear children in a totalitarian, religious society where escape is virtually impossible. The chilling first series was met with critical acclaim, and the trailer for the second series hints at a resistance forming to end the regime.
The trailer reveals what viewers can expect to see in season two, including a visit to the colonies, a polluted and radioactive wasteland that is only mentioned in the first series, as well as Moira's life after her escape to Canada in season one. The trailer also promises that June will reunite with Nick, the father of June's unborn baby. The trailer also shows a chilling new look for the Handmaids, who are dressed in all black gowns with red veils. Speaking about the design, showrunner Bruce Miller told Entertainment Weekly: "Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling. These scenes that are so beautiful, while set in such a terrible place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy." He added: "The biggest barrier of season two was season one. You sort of intimidate yourself. But at a certain point, you can't spend all your time second-guessing things. Instead, you just have to remember to try and tell a good story."

Speaking about the trailer, one person wrote: "This was without a doubt the best TV show of 2017, and will be for sure the best of 2018! Praise Be," while another added: "From this trailer I can already tell that Season 2 is gonna be so much more intense and gripping than last season. April simply can't come soon enough. #HandmaidsTale." Speaking about what to expect from season two, a third person joked: "I could watch June set fire to literally anything for an entire season and be okay with it."
