Production of The Handmaid's Tale season five is well underway in Canada, and the next instalment of the smash hit series will premiere exclusively in Australia on SBS and On Demand later this year. 

In the meantime, if you haven't caught up with every episode of season four, you really need to get to it. The 10-episode season box set is set to leave SBS On Demand in a mere matter of weeks, so you have a hectic (but rewarding) binge ahead of you. 

The cultural phenomenon picks up exactly where we left off, with June having accomplished yet another strike against her captors in Gilead, and paying a high price for her efforts. If you're not yet all caught up on the dramatic events of season 3, we've got you covered with this comprehensive recap

When season 4 starts off, June is the face of the Mayday revolution, and her desire for justice and revenge threatens to consume her, and destroy her most cherished relationships.

A 'Handmaid's Tale' refresher to help you prepare for Season 4
It's been a long time between seasons of The Handmaid's Tale. Here's everything you need to remember about where we left off, when season 4 premieres this month.

Don't put it off any longer, as you'll need to be all caught up once season five drops. [Editor's note: Of course, if you already watched season four, you know you want to dive back in and relive every second of, um ...how can we put this without spoilers for the others?.... all of that].

You're in for a heady streaming experience, so don't forget to listen to SBS Australia's award-winning Eyes On Gilead: A Handmaid's Tale Podcast to talk it out after every episode (and with bonus interviews with stars and key creators of the show).
