If you can just get past the constant fear that Elisabeth Moss’ character is doomed to die a sex slave in a patriarchal hellscape, The Handmaid’s Tale executive producer Bruce Miller says, the Hulu drama really is an uplifting tale.
“I believe in June,” he told reporters on a recent call regarding the series’ Season 2 finale, which began streaming Wednesday. “If June’s story is the story we tell, we’ve told it because it’s a story of hope. I do feel like every episode where it ends in ‘June is alive’ is a huge victory and a story worth telling, to see how someone in this world doesn’t just survive but in their own way finds ways to live, finds ways to actually have a life, have intimacy.”
