Elisabeth Moss as Offred

The America we know is gone. Now it's the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian theocracy in which women have been stripped of their rights and deemed property of the state. This is the world encompassing The Handmaid's Tale, a new dystopian series coming to Hulu, which released eight new images of the cast of characters. Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred in the 10-episode series, which is based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood. Offred has been classified as a Handmaid, a female whose sole role is to reproduce, but she'll survive this oppressive society if it means navigating and, perhaps, undoing the regime. Scroll through to meet the other characters of The Handmaid's Tale, premiering on Hulu on April 26.
