Today Hulu announced that its 10-episode adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian The Handmaid’s Tale will premiere April 26, 2017. It also released an array of character images, including this pensive shot of star Elisabeth Moss, along with several faces that didn’t appear in the first-look photos, such as Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black) as Moira, an ally to Moss’ Offred.

Looks like the exact combination of lovely and stark that I’d hoped for. Really looking forward to this.

Although I still wish they’d cast Serena Joy older.
