Margaret Atwood's The Testaments (open spoilers after 9/24)


The long awaited sequel to The Handmaid's Tale came out yesterday and my copy should arrive tomorrow. I can't wait to start reading this. I know it's a sequel to the book, not the TV show (which has diverged from the novel & gone into it's own territory), but it appears that material from it has already been incorporated into the show from some of the plot details I've seen.

SPOILER:
Like Aunt Lydia's backstory and the Baby Nicole propaganda cult.


It looks like Hulu is going either use this as material source for future seasons of the show, or as the basis of a sequel series of some kind.
