The hit series ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ based on the dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood, has been renewed for a fourth season, Hulu announced on Friday.

The drama series, which first aired in April 2017, is set in a world where women are reduced to sexual slavery under a totalitarian regime called Gilead.

The show, which Hulu says is the most watched on the streaming service, has earned 11 Emmys including one for lead actress Elisabeth Moss and one for supporting actress Ann Dowd. The third season, which ends in August, sees Moss’ character, June, trying to save her children from the tyrannical regime.

The show has proven wildly popular with audiences and was released in the months following President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
