In the future, in the Republic of Gilead, religious fanatics come to power. It is precisely because of them that cruel orders reigned in the country, because of which women who are capable of reproducing offspring are sent to closed institutions so that there they give birth to children for wealthy gentlemen.


Due to the poor ecology in the future, only some women are able to have children. They are selected and made "servants", and the training is aimed only at one goal - to conceive a child for officers whose wives cannot do this. One of these women is June Osborne. Once she was unable to cross the state border with her husband and daughter, so now she has become a servant. But the woman does not despair, but tries to fight the prosperous system of Gilead.

In season 3, June refused to escape to Canada and continued to fight the Gilead regime, and also prompted others to do so.

Bruce Miller, the show's runner of the project, talks about what will happen in the new season:

"I try to look into the very future of the series. I would like to create an episode about something like the Nuremberg trials - Gilead will fall, and its leadership will need to be judged."

He also added that the script will follow the original novels, on the basis of which the plot was created:

“Our series still follows the plot of the novel, where the woman is dominated by the Gilead system. Her memories paint a further picture of the world. Many are sure that we are ahead of the book story. But we do not go beyond the plot of the novel, but try to tell everything in the smallest details. "
