It's without a doubt that Hulu's Original, The Handmaid's Tale, made quite a stir. With the premiere shortly after Donald Trump being announced as the 45th President many claimed that the show was a little 'too close to home.'

The show is set sometime in the future and mimics a twisted dark version of America. Women basically have little to no rights, values are compromised, and fertility has taken the reigns of most important. Women are sent to a low functioning hell hole called the colonies and are ordered to answer to a commander. The government has taken over everything - sound familiar?

Fans filled The Dolby Theater during The PaleyFest to speak about monumental turns in season one and what to expect for season two! As the panel with cast and crew got underway, series creator/showrunner/executive producer Bruce Miller said of Offred in season two, "Her character's a lot more of a rebel and feistier. She's having a lot more of trouble as Offred hiding June, so that stuff comes out more." He added, "She's also getting to know and building a relationship with Serena that, even though they wouldn't like it to turn out that way, is getting more honest."

Season two will show Aunt Lydia overwhelmed from excitement when she learns of Offred's pregnancy, but will also "los[e] her grip in Offred for a little while" and then "express her anger in a way that you wouldn't expect."

Will season two show more of Moira (Samira Wiley) and her 'free' life in Canada, will Offred (Elisabeth Moss) embrace motherhood or use it to her advantage in hopes of an escape?

According to executive producer Warren Littlefield, the two major themes in season two will be motherhood and that "Gilead is within you." "When we start the season, [Offred] has a child and in this explosive, volatile chess game of season two, all her moves are for that unborn child and what life will be for that unborn child," Littlefield said, adding that the season will also reveal more of a backstory.

I'll admit, I waited a few months to watch the hit television show for the fact that I was afraid to potentially watch our new reality. When asked about our current situation had an influence on the writing style, Miller stated, "The last thing that I want to do is mansplain about what people should take about from the show," he said. "What they take away from the show, what allegories they see, I hope is up to them."

In season two No one is safe! Littefield reminded the audience, "Anyone could die." Miller added: "The terrible thing about Gilead is that sometimes the worst-case scenario is that they don't die."On the anticipation of its second season, The Handmaid's Tale is set to drop on Hulu on April 25th!
