Season three of The Handmaid’s Tale will debut in June with some all-new episodes!
Specifically, three brand new episodes will drop on June 5 on Hulu, THR reports.
The Elisabeth Moss-starrer has previously debuted in April for the past two seasons, so this is a bit of a departure.
There’s some thought that producers purposefully pushed back the season three start date to avoid having to submit for the 2019 Emmy Awards (the cutoff for the Emmys is June 1). Game of Thrones‘ final season will likely be competing for lots of awards during this upcoming Emmys broadcast, and some believe that could be behind the motivation to push back The Handmaid’s Tale.
