The Handmaid's Tale

Get ready to spend more time in Gilead in July when season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale returns to M-Net (DStv channel 101) and streaming online on DStv Now.

Based on the best-selling classic 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, and Samira Wiley.

Set in Gilead, a society that has overthrown the United States government, ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as state property. In a desperate attempt to repopulate a world devastated by environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate, fertile women are forced into sexual servitude. One woman, Offred, is determined to find the daughter that was taken from her and survive the terrifying reality.

The Handmaid’s Tale was the first streaming series to win both the Golden Globe and Emmy Award for Best Drama Series.

In season 1, the colonies were explored – where infertile women and regime opposers are sent to clean up toxic waste, Offred became more rebellious, and one of the handmaids died.

Get ready to spend more time in Gilead in July when season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale returns to M-Net (DStv channel 101) and streaming live on DStv Now.
