Hulu has shared the first look at the highly anticipated second season of The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as revealing the series release date of 25 April.

Based on the dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood, the show is set in the near future in the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian and theocratic state that has replaced the United States of America. The first series picked up a number of Golden Globe awards and Emmys, with lead actress Elisabeth Moss taking home a couple of big prizes.

This intense glimpse into season 2 shows the main characters in their various predicaments soundtracked by an ominous cover of Buffalo Springfield’s "For What It’s Worth". Take a look at it above!

The Handmaid’s Tale returns on 25 April.
