Hulu’s first Super Bowl teaser

Hulu has released a new teaser trailer for its upcoming show The Handmaid’s Tale, which will air this Sunday during the Super Bowl. The teaser builds on the first trailer for the show, focusing on the role of the Handmaids in this dystopian future.

While trailers for movies are common during the Super Bowl, this is the first time Hulu will be airing a trailer for any of their original shows.

The show is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, and depicts a future in which the United States is replaced by the Republic of Gilead, an extreme, religious dystopia where women are subjugated. Elizabeth Moss’ portrays Offred, a handmaid who’s role is defined by her fertility.

The first season of The Handmaid’s Tale will premiere on Hulu on April 26th, 2017.
