Ending of Season 3 left us with a cliffhanger where June was swept away by her fellow handmaidens. We saw Serena getting arrested and the children escaped and start to make their journey to Canada.

We will see the continuation from here and how will these events impact the story.

The sequel novel, The Testaments will also be adapted to the story.

In an interview with E!, Bruce Miller said, “You can imagine, I mean, if one child getting out and going to Canada [became] an international incident. For Gilead, these kids were kidnapped from their homes. So I think they react like any other country would, but magnified because we’re living in a world where children are very rare. So are there going to be consequences more than [June] getting shot? Yes, absolutely.”
