Alexis Bledel has been upped to series regular for “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 2, Hulu announced on Thursday.
Bledel appeared in a guest starring role during the critically-acclaimed show’s first season as Emily/Ofglen. She befriends Offred (Elisabeth Moss) and tells her of a secret resistance group called Mayday.
In another streaming series role, Bledel recently reprised the character of Rory Gilmore in the Netflix limited series “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” She is repped by CAA, Industry Entertainment, and Jackoway, Tyerman, Wertheimer, Austen, Mandelbaum, Morris & Klein.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood. It tells the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. It is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.
As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. According to Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale” became the most-viewed premiere of any series – original or acquired – on the streaming service in its first week. Season 2 is scheduled to debut in 2018.
The serieswas created for television by Bruce Miller, who serves as the series’ showrunner. Miller, Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, and Illene Chaiken serve as executive producers. It is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.
headcanon: elias buys sana as a bday present tickets to some special basketball match in oslo where the guest star is stephen curry, adam also gives her a "stephen curry" jersey knowing it would piss yousef off because he alreadyy gave her a basketball jersey with "acar" written on the back and when they all go to the match, she decides to wear the one with stephen curry and yousef is like okay i'm gonna handle it, i'll be a tough man (1)
and the whole time during the match sana cheers everytime curry scores and the boys all know how much it pisses yousef off, like she didn’t pay attention to him at all and during the break they catch stephen and sana is like “can i take a picture with you?” and yousef is on the highest level of jealousy right now so when they introduce themselves to him, yousef just shakes his hand and holds it really tight and tells him “hi, i’m yousef, her boyfriend, the love of her life”
and sana is trying not to laugh because she loves teasing him so at the end sana has a picture of her and stephen curry in her dress with his name printed in her room and yousef is already giving up telling her stuff like "you know, you maybe should have ran away with him after that match, in slow motion into the sunset and never come back if you love him so much”
and at the end of the day sana gives him a picture of her in her “acar” dress as a gift for no special occasion on which she wrote “i would only run away into sunset with you”
AHHHH I LOVED THIS!!!!
THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS WITH ME THIS IS GOLD!!!! AND IT’S TOTALLY CANON!
Summary: Bones keeps doing nice things for him and Jim keeps thanking him and Bones keeps saying it’s no big deal and the cycle continues.
A/N: For my darling @thatkourtnichik who’s been having a rough time lately and deserves all the happiness in the world. She’s been here for me while I’ve been going through things myself, and I can only hope to do the same for her. I hope you like it.
This was based on a prompt Kourtni gave me, so all credit for the idea goes to her.

Jim was in more trouble than he would like to admit, and he realized this during the worst goddamn time.
An apple in his mouth, his satchel in one hand and a textbook in the other, he made his way through the eerily empty halls of the Academy. The lack of noise made it all worse, because he could hear his own echoing steps and his slightly heavy breathing and his heart attempting to choke him in his throat all too perfectly, and he hated it. Hated the panic that was threatening to overtake him as he sprinted as fast as he could without tripping over his own feet.
This week wasn’t starting good.
He rounded a corner and nearly had a heart attack when he saw the form of his professor standing just before him, but once his frantic mind calmed down enough for his temporary blindness to cease he realized that he was standing with his back against Jim, and Bones was speaking to him animatedly about whatever, which was strange considering the fact that Bones didn’t even take any of his classes.
Bones caught Jim’s eye, and Jim instantly knew what was happening.
To play: answer the prompts and tag your friends to do the same. Optional: use #microreview and check out @microreviews for “rules,” reviews, and more!
1. Pick a book you own but haven’t read yet: Oh, you mean one of the 1,300 books I own and haven’t read…ok. I’ll go with Sepulchre by Kate Mosse
2. How did you come by it? Given by a friend? Bought from a recommendation? Compelled by the cover? This book is actually book 2 in the Languedoc trilogy. They can all read as stand-alones, but I bought the others after reading the first book, Labyrinth. Labyrinth has since been turned into a miniseries (with guest stars like John Hurt, Sebastian Stan, and Tom Felton) which I really enjoyed.
3. Quote the first sentence(s): “This story begins in a city of bones. In the alleyways of the dead. In the silent boulevards and promenades and impasses of the
cimetière de Montmartre in Paris, a place inhabited by tombs and stone angels and the loitering ghosts of those forgotten before they are even cold in their graves.”
4. Realistically, will you ever read it? I would love to say yes, but the first book took WORK. These are complex stories and are set in France. Lots of French names, places, culture, history…and I don’t speak any French. It is much harder for me to read a book if I have no idea how to pronounce any of the characters’ names or understand the references to actual historical events. Though, ignorance is no excuse to stay ignorant…if I live another 60+ years, I will definitely get to it.
