The ten-episode series —adapted from
classic dystopian 1985 novel — tells the story of Gilead, formerly part of the United States but now a totalitarian society where plunging birthrates and environmental disasters have led to women being treated as property of the state.
The series, created and written by Bruce Miller, begins filming in Toronto this fall and is expected to premiere in 2017. Strahovski will next be seen in Marc Foster’s All I See Is Youopposite Jason Clarke and Blake Lively.
Yvonne Strahovski is set as a lead opposite Joseph Fiennes and Elisabeth Moss in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the upcoming straight-to-series drama based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel.
Strahovski will play Serena Joy, wife of Commander Waterford (Fiennes)
and the head of the household staff. As an influential public figure,
she fought for traditional values and the establishment of Gilead.
