The Handmaid’s Tale seasons are usually released about a year apart. The first three seasons were released in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Season 4 of your favorite TV show was delayed because there was a coronavirus pandemic. It premiered in April 2021.

What is the plot of the handmaid’s tale season 5?
In The Handmaid’s Tale tv show, June met with Fred Waterford. She thought he was leaving for Zurich. But she did not want him to get free. So she did something, but we don’t know what yet because this is only season four and there are more episodes to watch.
June approached Mark while he was jogging and asked him to drive her somewhere. When they got there, Commander Lawrence said that if they delivered Fred, Gilead would free 22 women who had been captured while working for the resistance.
Mark agreed and Fred was leaving for Zurich, but he was arrested. Commander Lawrence drove him to “no man’s land.” Commander Lawrence then gave him to Commander Nick Blaine.
Nick took Fred into the woods. When they were there, Nick kissed June and then left. June removed Fred’s handcuffs and then told him to run away from the women who came out of the woods.
He ran away and June and the other handmaids chased him. Fred fell and they started beating him up.
In the morning, June got in her car to go home. She had blood on her face and it was quiet. When Luke saw the blood, he knew that she had done something bad. He was very sad and cried a lot.
In the detention center, Serena is working on her computer. Outside, a mail worker opens a package addressed to her. Outfalls Fred’s wedding ring … and his finger.
