Since it started streaming on Hulu in April, the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale has become a huge hit.
The show, which has already been renewed for a second season, stars Elisabeth Moss as Offred, a handmaid in the dystopian republic of Gilead.
Handmaids are responsible for bearing children for the wives of Commanders who cannot have kids of their own.
And a lot of people have been tweeting about how relevant The Handmaid’s Tale feels right now. Here are 21 tweets from fans:
