The series has been airing for the past three years, and frankly, the series has been a successful one. The Handmaid’s Tale has made a considerably large fan base, and it is one of the most-watched show on Hulu. But after successfully airing three seasons, the horror show has come to a ghostly halt as there has been no info on the renewal of the series.
So there is a flurry of speculations doing rounds on the internet, and fans aren’t getting any assurance from someone credible. Let’s dive into the details and see if there is any chance of a possible revival of the show.
Amid the prevailing silence on the official twitter handle of the series since December 2019, finally, a word has been spoken. Elizabeth Moss finally said something about the future of the show. She attributed the production process as a major factor in the delay of the renewal of the fourth season.
There is another way to see things as she went on to explain that this time the episodes are going to be longer. And this is the reason why the filming is delayed. There is another reason for the delay as she explains that they aren’t sitting in a studio, and they have to shift locations now and then.
Logistics has a significant role to play in it, and as we all know, what’s happening across the globe. Amid the prevailing situation with the spread of COVID-19, there is not one organisation in the world that can claim to be consistent in their work or remained unaffected. The logistics have been deeply hurt with the spread of the virus.
There are other issues, too; almost all the major cities across the globe are on virtual lockdown. Nobody can move from one place to the other, and this is going to take some time.
Amid the crisis, we can’t expect the production team to work, although we are not saying that the delay in filming is sole because of COVID-19. There are several other factors, but the most recent one is the worst thing that could have possibly happened to a show which is already reeling due to other factors. But at this point, we can’t expect things to become normal overnight. So as fans, we should wait for the renewal of the show, and it’s great that there is some delay in filming, but there is no compromise on the quality of the show.
The third season ended in August, and since then, the production team is up in arms for the fourth season. This is taking time, but Elizabeth said that she has been prepping since January for the fourth season. And if you have watched the third season, the way it ended is the sole reason for the fan’s anxiousness as a lot has been left on a cliffhanger. So it’s going to be an interesting season for sure, and if any further details come to us, we will update you.
