Plot Details: June Will Become Stronger
Speaking of what would come up in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5, we think it’s too early to predict as we still have season four that will release soon.

The previous two seasons of the series had thirteen episodes, so we can expect to have thirteen episodes in the fifth season too. Before we get the fifth season, season 4 is on its way.
