Elisabeth Moss Gives An Update On New Season of 'The Handmaid's Tale'
She also promoted her new film 'Shirley' which premieres this week.
Emmy Award-winner Elisabeth Moss has given fans an official update on Season 4 of The Handmaid's Tale. Speaking exclusively to Extra's Jenn Lahmers, Moss said that they essentially still have to shoot the entire new season.
"We were only two weeks in, so we actually have an entire season to shoot,” Moss said, adding, “We want to go back to work because families have people to support and rent they need to pay, but at the same time no human’s life is worth a TV show. We’re just trying to figure out how to do it safely for everybody."
The COVID-19 pandemic forced production of the hit Hulu show to shut down. Moss, who has starred on the show since it premiered, was set to make her directorial debut this season.
In its first season, The Handmaid's Tale was nominated for thirteen Emmy Awards, taking home eight pieces of hardware including Outstanding Drama Series. Throughout the show's first three seasons, Elisabeth Moss has won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance.
Moss also promoted her new movie Shirley along with co-star Michael Stuhlbarg. In the film, Moss plays famed real-life horror writer Shirley Jackson, and Stuhlbarg plays her college professor husband Stanley. The script centers around a young couple who moves in with them, creating an intense situation that inspires the author’s next novel.
The film arrives on VOD, Hulu, and drive-in theaters this Friday, June 5.
