Get ready to witness the immersive world of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ again as Hulu is set to premiere Season 5 of the award-winning series on the streaming platform. Just like always, the show will be making its way to the smaller screens with a two-hour launch event, meaning the show will air two episodes on the night of its premiere. After that, the subsequent weeks will air only one episode until the finale.

As of now, the streaming service hasn’t announced the details of the time of release so viewers can be in for a surprise when they tune in to watch the show.

What time will 'The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 5 Episodes 1 and 2 be out on Hulu?

The first two episodes of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 5 will be released on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, at 12.01 am ET, followed by new episodes every Wednesday. As of now, the programming details haven’t been revealed by Hulu and we don’t have an idea when the finale will be airing. The fourth season featured 10 episodes and almost went on for two months. So, it’s possible that the fifth season might also consist of ten episodes or even less because the production had to be put on pause on several occasions due to Covid-19.  

In short, new episodes will drop at midnight ET on Wednesdays.

Elisabeth Moss and Yvonne Strahovski will be reprising their respective roles of June Osborne and Serena Joy. Meanwhile, other actors such as Madeline Brewer (Janine), Max Minghella (Nick), O T Fagbenle (Luke), Samira Wiley (Moira), Bradley Whitford (Commander Lawrence), Ann Dowd (Aunt Lydia), and Amanda Brugel (Rita) will also be returning for the upcoming season.
