The Handmaid’s Tale.
Acclaimed Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale started filming season 4 in Toronto today.

The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the U.S. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted religious fundamentalism that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a handmaid in the commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. She is forced to navigate between commanders, their cruel wives, domestic marthas and her fellow handmaids — where anyone could be a spy for Gilead — all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
In a cliffhanger ending, June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss)’s fellow handmaidens swept her away as the Children of Gilead managed to escape and make their way to Canada.
Torontonians got to see the filming of a hanging at Toronto City Hall last season.

And the show went on location to the Main Mall of Washington, DC., turning the Washington Monument into a gigantic cross.
