The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 spoilers follow.
The show went through many changes in its fourth season with June (Elisabeth Moss) finally breaking out of Gilead, and taking revenge on Commander Fred Waterford by murdering him.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Amanda Brugel, who plays Rita in the show, gave her hopes for what the new episodes will offer.
“My suspicion is that June will go on the run, or June will have to go into hiding. I think there’ll be a target on her back,” she said.
“And I think that those of us in Canada will have to try to pick up the pieces.
“I also have a suspicion that my relationship – my ongoing relationship with Serena Joy – while complicated, will probably deepen because she is pregnant, and because Rita… She does care about Serena Joy, and the fact that there’s a child there.
“Especially for my character, her only real purpose in Gilead was to raise children.”
She added: “Now that she’s fleeing Canada, it still doesn’t take away from her instinct and impulse to raise a child, and take care of something, because she lost her son, as we know.”
The actress explained that the scripts are kept a big secret, so the cast don’t know ahead of time. “I wish I knew, and I’m not one of those people that’s lying and is like, ‘I don’t know’,” she said.
“But I have no idea what’s going to happen, because the writers – most of the time, we don’t get scripts until two weeks before we’re shooting them.”
“With reality TV, I feel like it’s the same sort of thing over and over again, where we see couples fighting, or people getting angry at one another,” she said.
“It’s interesting to watch, and it’s sort of ‘escape’ TV. But drag is able to showcase so many different types of artists just within the art of drag alone.”
