“The success of The Handmaid’s Tale remains paramount for us,” said Jordan Hellman, Hulu’s head of originals. “That said, it’s also crucial to us that we end the show in a creative way that seems natural, so we’re in continual contact, literally right now, with Bruce [Miller], Lizzie [Moss], and Warren [Littlefield] about the best way to end The Handmaid’s Tale… We haven’t decided on an answer… In the following months, I believe we’ll be able to answer that question “..
