It seems Margaret Atwood has made Hulu her home, as the streaming service is also adapting her 2015 novel, The Heart Goes Last.

Atwood's new novel The Testaments, which will be released September 10, picks up 15 years after the original book left Offred's (portrayed by Elisabeth Moss in the Hulu series) future in question and is narrated by three female characters from Gilead - including Aunt Lydia, played in the Hulu series by Ann Dowd. As the series has gone beyond the source material after its first season, showrunner Bruce Miller was certain that The Testaments would directly impact the trajectory of the show.

The Testaments will help.

It is told from the perspective of three other women who are connected to Gilead - and is set to be one of the most talked-about books of 2019.

Atwood released The Handmaid's Tale 34 years ago. During a recent interview, Atwood recalled sharing some choice words with Miller when she learned Lydia was going to be stabbed by a vengeful handmaid: "You absolutely can not kill Aunt Lydia, or I will have your head on a plate", she remembers saying. But reviews of the latest season were more divided, with some critics and viewers expressing a sense of fatigue over the continual traumas depicted.

Been feeling like Offred (Elisabeth Moss) should have gotten out of Gilead by now? "I can't be in all the places at once in my analogue body, but I look forward to being with so many readers via the big screen". He's eager to hear which details his team finds most compelling and how they might incorporate or build up to those in the show.

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, including Lily James, this will be an event spotlighting Atwood's signature insight, humour and intellect.
