The Handmaid’s Tale continues to be a critical and popular success and has been renewed for a sixth season by Hulu, before the fifth premieres. Although Hulu like Netflix and other streaming services do not release audience numbers, the series remains the flagship of weekly releases on Hulu, being seen by millions of subscribers every Wednesday. In September 2022, the month of release of the fifth season, The Handmaid’s Tale was fifth in Nielsen’s ranking of most watched streaming.
The sixth season, however, will be the last of the series. “It has been a true honor to tell the story of Margaret Atwood’s groundbreaking book and hauntingly relevant world, and we are thrilled to bring viewers a sixth and final season of The Handmaid’s Tale. We are grateful to Hulu and MGM for allowing us to tell this story. , which sadly remained as relevant as ever throughout its run, and we’re in awe of our amazing fans for their unwavering support, and without whom we never would have made it to this point.”
The renewal announcement was made on September 8, 2022, before the fifth season even premiered, will we know more about it? Check out the announcement teaser below:

SPOILERS for The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6: What lies ahead for Gilead and Canada?
At the end of season five, June and Luke split up when he turns himself in to Canadian authorities, thus helping June and Nichole escape on the refugee train. In a twist, among the refugees she finds Serena on the run with newborn Noah.
It’s a mix of cliffhangers – a situation in which the character is exposed to an extreme situation and is on the verge of a surprising revelation -. What will happen to Janine after she is taken by the Eyes? Has Aunt Lydia finally turned the key after her most beloved handmaiden was taken away by Gilead? What awaits in the future for June and Serena? Will Luke survive prison? What about Esther?
Many questions that must be answered right at the beginning of the next season, since it is customary for The Handmaid’s Tale to start a new season right after the final events of the previous season. Until the fifth season it was like that.
Will The Handmaid’s Tale end in season six?
Yes, The Handmaid’s Tale will end in season five. However, the series will be preceded by a spinoff, which will continue to tell the story of Gilead, being based on the book of the same name The Testaments.
Considering that readers never see June have a proper ending in the original book because she continues in The Testaments, fans of the series are curious to know if the television adaptation might have a different outcome in the transition between the existing series and the spinoff.
We can’t count on June playing a major role in the spinoff, though. “I don’t feel like it’s credible to involve her the way she is involved in the novel The Testaments. I just want to follow the story and make sure it makes sense,” said showrunner Bruce Miller.
He continued, “I think at the end, just like before we started the show, they had lives. It’s going to go on however it goes on, and we’re not going to see that. And because we got to see that part so intimately, I feel like you care with what happens to her next, but that’s not that tale.”
