Change never comes easy… @hulu #handmaidstale

A post shared by Elisabeth Moss (@elisabethmossofficial) on

Commander Joseph Lawrence, played by Bradley Whitford, makes a return to the Channel 4 and Hulu show, as does Ann Dowd’s sinister Aunt Lydia.

Series three saw former handmaid June lead a rebellion to rescue the children of Gilead, but now she returns to dismantle its government in its entirety.

In one scene from the trailer, Aunt Lydia, who leads the re-education of detained handmaids, says of June: “I never allowed myself to see her for what she really is … beyond redemption.”

Moss shared the trailer with the caption: “Change never comes easy …”

The series is expected to debut in 2021.
