SEASON two of The Handmaid’s Tale ended on the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers — what’s next for June?

While June’s decision to stay in Gilead frustrated viewers, it was Emily’s (Alexis Biedel) cold blooded stabbing of Aunt Lydia — played by Ann Dowd — that proved the episode’s most dramatic moment.

But while Aunt Lydia had looked pretty lifeless after falling down a staircase and being stabbed, series showrunner Bruce Miller has said Dowd’s character is definitely coming back for season three.

Prepare for more doom and gloom from the handmaids’ enforcer, with Miller telling Indiewire the attack makes Aunt Lydia “double down” on the women in season three.

“Aunt Lydia doesn’t die, [but] she’s transformed by this event. The fact that one of her girls … has literally stabbed her in the back. I think that that alters your workplace feelings on a day-to-day basis,” Miller explained.

“In her case, it makes her double down that she feels like she just wasn’t strong enough in her discipline. So she, I think, has decided it’s time to get tough.”

To prepare for the long wait until Th e Handmaid’s Tale’s next instalment, here’s a round up of everything else we know about season three.

When will it air?

The next series will premiere sometime in 2019, with Hulu likely to release it in April, the same month season one and two premiered.

While SBS waited several months before airing the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale in late 2017, it’s likely the third series will be fast tracked to Australia just days after the US like the second season.

Will Emily and Nicole appear in season three?

While Emily was last seen heading to the Canadian border clutching June’s daughter Nicole, Miller has confirmed season three will feature both characters.

“It’s June’s child, and just as much as Hannah has been a huge part of our show, Nicole’s gonna be a huge part of our show, whether it’s in influence or whether it’s in corporeal reality with someone holding them in our arc,” Miller told Indiewire.

“She is the force to be reckoned with. She is the next generation that they’re all doing all of this for.”

Commander Lawrence will return

The end of season two introduced Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford), a mysterious and influential figure who helped Emily escape, despite being the architect of Gilead’s oppression of women.

Miller confirmed Lawrence will return next season, meaning it’s likely future episodes will delve into his past and motives for helping handmaids escape.

“He was exactly the kind of character we wanted to start building in season two … I think we’re going to learn a ton about him,” he told Indiewire.

June’s husband Luke is looking for revenge

According to Miller, June’s husband Luke will take a more active role fighting Gilead in season three.

His character had a major moment of development last season when he confronted Fred for raping June during the Waterford’s diplomatic visit to Canada.

“I think that now that he’s met Fred, face-to-face, that is the focus of his fury,” Miller told TV Guide.

“All of the sudden the Gilead, and the Gilead system has been reduced to Fred Waterford and he’s gonna find a way to get Fred.”

Nick and Rita will be in serious trouble

Unsurprisingly, Nick and Rita will be in hot water after helping June and Nicole escape, meaning next season could spell the end for both characters — no!

“Yes, there will be repercussions for Nick,” Miller told Indiewire.
