What Time Will The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Be On Hulu?

Praise be. We have all been waiting for this moment. But, everyone is dying to know: What time will The Handmaid's Tale season 2 be on Hulu? We already know that the season two premiere of our favorite dystopian book adaptation will be April 25, 2018. However, we don't know the official Handmaid's Tale time. Seeing as the season 2 trailers have been as anxiety-inducing as they have been exciting, we won't be able to sleep until we get our fix of The Handmaid's Tale.

While we do love all of our streaming subscriptions, the ambiguity of exactly what time Handmaid's Tale season two will be released is killing us. As we near the 25th, we begin to wonder how much longer we'll have to wait to see what happened to June (Elisabeth Moss). Did she manage to escape Gilead and the Waterfords for good? Or did Nick (Max Minghella) bring her to her final fate? We're not so sure. But, what about Moira (Samira Wiley) and Luke (O.T. Fagbenle)? How will they cope with life outside? Will we get to see Emily/Ofglen (Alexis Bledel) and Janine/Ofwarren (Madeline Brewer) at the colonies in the premiere?

Can you tell we're nervous? We have so many questions that need to be answered. Don't you? How could you not be nervous? Luckily, we've done some digging so you can sit back and relax until the season premiere airs on Hulu. Here's everything we know about what time Handmaid's Tale season 2 will be added to Hulu! Plus, more details on the premiere!

What Time Will The Handmaid's Tale Be On Hulu?

So, what time will season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale be on Hulu? Although it's confirmed that the newest season will debut on April 25, 2018, Hulu never actually confirmed what time the series is meant to return. So, a simple search isn't enough. However, after a bit of investigating, we have your answer. And while it's not entirely complete, we have a pretty good guess of when. It's likely that the Handmaid's Tale release time will be at 12 AM EST on April 25. This is the typical release time of Hulu original, since Hulu usually releases new episodes of shows midnight the date they are set to premiere.

Still not convinced? If you took notes last year when season 1 was released, you'll know that The Handmaid's Tale season 1 aired its first three episodes midnight eastern time on Wednesday, April 26th.

So, now that's all settled, how many episodes of season 2 will Hulu release on premiere night? And what time will Hulu release episodes every week after tonight? Stay tuned! Because we have more details on what's coming this year!
