'Handmaid's Tale': Watch THR's TV Talks Panel With Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel and Director Reed Morano

THR's senior film reporter Tatiana Siegel moderates a discussion with the stars and director of Hulu's breakout series.

Now five episodes in, the stars of Hulu's critically acclaimed series The Handmaid's Tale are sitting down to chat about the show that has everyone talking.

The series, which premiered with the first three episodes April 26 and drops a new one each Wednesday, is an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's best-selling 1985 dystopian novel. The story takes place in a futuristic world and totalitarian society where fertile women — the "handmaids" — are sent off to procreate for affluent families.

The unintentionally timely series tackles topics of institutionalized rape, body mutilation, hangings and various other forms of abuse through the eyes of Offred (Elisabeth Moss), as this new world, one depleted of women's rights, forces her into a life of obedience and sexual servitude. 

The drama from MGM Television already has been renewed for a second season, set to return in 2018. 

On Wednesday night, Moss, co-star Alexis Bledel and director Reed Morano are sitting down with The Hollywood Reporter's senior film reporter, Tatiana Siegel, to discuss the show as part of THR's TV Talks series.

The event kicks off at 8 p.m. ET from New York City's 92nd Street Y. Watch the live stream above.
