June (played by Elisabeth Moss) has fought tooth and nail to make it in the oppressive regime.
Three seasons in to The Handmaid’s Tale, she’s still fighting despite the hostile environment.
But will she have a happy ending on the Hulu show?
Showrunner Bruce Miller has spoken about June’s motivation to keep going and in doing so has commented on her eventual fate.
She is going to make it through
“You know, honestly, we’re telling the story about the person who survived to tell us our story,” he told Gizmodo.
“When we start the series, we hear her talking to us, she’s talking to us from the future…she’s telling a story in retrospect.
“So we know she went through it. So no matter how she navigates through she is going to make it through because that’s the story we’ve been given to tell,” Bruce continued.
Now into its third season, the series has gone way beyond the source material written by Margaret Atwood.
While the first season ended just as the book did, it has now gone beyond that to explore June’s story.
However, the book ends with a look into the future as it switches to an academic lecture set in 2195.
It’s revealed in the epilogue that June’s story has been recorded on to tape where others can learn what happened as it is noted that Gilead fell.
But it remains to be seen whether Gilead’s end will be depicted in the television series.
It is yet to be announced whether there will be a fourth run for the programme or not.
Although, executive producer Warren Littlefield did confirm earlier in the year that talks were set to be had.
He told Good Housekeeping: “We’re catching our breath from season 3, and then [creator Bruce Miller] and the writers will go into their think tank, and there’s still more stories to tell. There’s more of Gilead to fight.”
The promo for the next instalment in the current season, episode nine, will pick up from the shock end of episode eight.
Ofmatthew (Ashleigh Lathrop) was shot in the grocery store after killing a guard before grabbing his gun to shoot Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) with.
However, the trailer for the next episode has teased that she’s still alive and it shows her hooked up to machines while lying in a hospital bed.
June is then seen at the foot of the bed, where she can be heard saying: “Her brain is gone, they say. I will be here until there’s a baby.”
The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 drops weekly on Hulu on Wednesdays and airs on Channel 4 in the UK every Sunday at 9pm.
