About TV show The Handmaid's Tale season 4
The Handmaid's Tale is an American television series based on the book The Report of the Maid of Margaret Atwood. The start of the series took place on 26 April 2017 at the video portal Hulu, after she was provided in April of the previous year with a direct order. In 2017, the series received the Emmy Award and two Golden Globe Awards in several categories. This makes The Handmaid's Tale the first series of video-on-demand services to win the top US television award for Best Drama Series.
In the near future, fertility rates collapse as a result of sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution.  With this chaos, the totalitarian, theonomic government of Gilead was established in the former United States in the aftermath of a civil. Society is organized by power-hungry leaders along with a new, militarized, hierarchical regime of fanaticism and newly-created social classes, in which women are brutally subjugated and disallowed to own property, handle money, or read.
According to an extremist interpretation of the Biblical account of Bilhah, worldwide infertility has resulted in the conscription of the few remaining fertile women in Gilead called Handmaids. They are assigned to the ruling elite, where they must submit to ritualized rape by their male masters in order to become pregnant and bear children for their men and their wives.
Alongside the Handmaids, much of society is now grouped into classes that dictate their freedoms and duties. Women are divided into a small category of social categories: handmaids wear red, Marthas (who are housekeepers and cooks, named after the biblical figure) wear green, and Wives (who are expected to run their households).
Econowives, the lower-class women who still have minimal agency, are a sort of mixture of all these categories, and they wear gray (a departure from the book in which Econowives wear clothing with the aforementioned colors). Women prisoners are called Unwomen and are worked to death clearing toxic waste in the Colonies.
