S2 TRAILER Getting epic acclaim. It's 97% on metacritic which is currently above The Leftovers season 3. Sci-fi/Drama First 3 episodes on 4/26 and other eps every Wednesday Time Daniel D'Addario Apr 13, 2017 100 As a show, The Handmaid's Tale is as crisply and elegantly made as anything I've seen on TV this year. It manages to bring a dystopian story to life in a way that works as episodic TV, sapping none of the book's power. This is a show that could work anytime and one that will likely be watched and discussed for years to come.
