The Handmaid’s Tale has held us all enthralled since the first episode. As one of the few fertile women left in a horrifying future America, June is enslaved as a handmaid, forced to produce children for a powerful man.

The finale of Season 2 left us all in shock – what was June thinking, staying in Gilead and sending her baby daughter off with Emily, who’s finally getting to escape?

We’re about to get answers to this question and more, now that The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 has arrived on Showmax. New episodes land every Monday at 22:30 at the same time as DStv.

Showmax subscribers have an even greater advantage. Episodes 1 and 2 of Season 3 are currently available to stream, as of 10 June 2019. New episodes, starting at episode 3, will land on Showmax at the same time as on M-Net, every Monday from 17 June at 22:30.
