Reed Birney, from House of Cards, plays someone from the world of Gilead “who’s unexpectedly not Reed Birney-ish,” described Miller.
The show started filming season four at the start of 2020 but had to stop due to the pandemic, which has delayed the season by a year.
Although a teaser for the new season was already released, the show hasn’t wrapped filming yet and it has been reported they are about halfway done.
However, Miller assured viewers that they shouldn’t expect a COVID-19 storyline in season four: “It just feels like it’s a good time to reassess what you were thinking, just because the story world has opened up because the real world has changed so much.”
The Handmaid’s Tale seasons 1-3 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
