Two of the images are general, wide shots of the Handmaids in different locales, and apparently at different seasons (including one in which they are ominously being led through a snow-covered cemetery).

If anyone wondered why Handmaid's Tale has been sweeping at every awards show - taking home nearly everything it was nominated for at the Emmys, Golden Globes, and Critics' Choice awards - then here's definitive proof that you need to pay attention to this show. Judging from all of last season's cutaways to sharp objects and Offred's growing need for violence, we imagine she'll only become more radicalized in Season 2.

"'Gilead is within you' is a favorite saying of [antagonist] Aunt Lydia", according to Hulu. "In season two, Offred and all our characters will fight against- or succumb to- this dark truth". Other returning cast members include Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, and Max Minghella.

What was hinted at in Atwood's novel can now be fully realized in The Handmaid's Tale season 2. "The biggest barrier of Season 2 was Season 1", Miller admits.

GKN reject takeover bid that values the company at £7bn
The town's ironworks supplied rails to railways in the United Kingdom and overseas , making it the world's largest by 1845. In 2012 Melrose bought utility metering firm Elster for £1.8bn and sold it three years later to Honeywell for £3.3bn.

'You sort of intimidate yourself. "Instead, you just have to keep in mind to try and tell a good story". But season 2 (which will premiere in April on Hulu) will enter uncharted territory, albeit with input from Atwood, who serves as a consulting producer on the series. Showrunner Bruce Miller had this to say to Entertainment Weekly as he moves into the next phase of the series. I'm not being cagey!

Miller also teased a scene set during a handmaid's funeral.

Politics retains getting weirder: Media endorses Oprah for 2020
"I like Oprah ", Trump told ABC News in June 2015. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else. She had Donald Trump and my family".

'Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling, ' he said. He continues, "These scenes that are so attractive, while set in such a bad place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy". "I just want the viewers to experience it for themselves!"

Chidambaram, Karti residences raided by ED, CBI
Last year, in May, a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act was registered against Karti and others by the ED. Officials are looking into how telecom firm Aircel was sold to a Malaysian communication giant Maxis.
