Hulu’s upcoming drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” may be a game changer for the streaming service.

Hulu has shared eight new images of the main characters, as well as released the official premiere date, to give viewers something to look forward to in 2017. 

The 10-episode series follows Offred as she tries to survive in a male-dominated totalitarian regime. She is one of the few remaining fertile women who is forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In hopes of surviving and finding the daughter that was taken from her, she will go from one miserable situation to the next.
