Blessed be the fruit, ’cause Hulu has set the premiere date for Season 3 of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The Elisabeth Moss-led drama will return with three new episodes at once on Wednesday, June 5, the streamer announced during the Television Critics Association press tour Monday. Subsequent episodes will be released every Wednesday.

After the premiere date announcement was made, Hulu’s Senior Vice President of Originals, Craig Erwich, told reporters during his executive session the decision to push the start of Season 3 to June — which will make it ineligible to compete in the 2019 Emmys — has nothing to do with when “Game of Thrones” comes back with its final batch of episodes — which will be eligible.

Per Hulu, the 13-episode third season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” is driven by June’s (Moss) resistance to the dystopian regime of Gilead and her struggle to strike back against overwhelming odds. Startling reunions, betrayals, and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead force all characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: “Blessed be the fight.”

The Season 2 finale of the Bruce Miller-created drama, titled “The Word,” ended with Offred/June making a giant sacrifice, by giving her baby girl Holly/Nicole to Emily (Alexis Bledel) to look after, rather than joining the two on their free ride out of the dystopian society. Instead, the mother of two decides to go against the plan carried out with help from a ton of Marthas on Wednesday’s episode and stay behind.

Along with Moss and Bledel, the series stars Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd, O-T Fagbenle, Max Minghella, Samira Wiley and Bradley Whitford.

Yvonne Strahovski is officially a mom!

The Handmaid’s Tale star has welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with her husband, actor Tim Loden. Strahovski announced her son’s arrival on Instagram on Monday evening, also sharing the first photo of her baby boy.

My heart has melted into a billion pieces a thousand times already,” she wrote. “We have been blessed with the greatest joy of our lives, our baby boy. Welcome to the world Peanut, your parents love you beyond measure and you are already my little dream boat. My heart has been stolen!

Her rep confirms both mommy and baby are doing well.

The 36-year-old Australian actress revealed her pregnancy news back in May. The announcement came in the form of an Instagram post that showed the Serena Joy character cradling her baby bump.

I am very excited to finally be able to share my special news—I’m going to be a Mama!” she captioned the photo. “So very exciting to watch and feel this little peanut growing every day!

After sharing the news, Strahovski continued to keep fans updated on her pregnancy journey, such as by posting pictures of her growing baby bump and revealing her pregnancy cravings, which included watermelon. She often included the phrase, “preggy n’ proud” in her posts. During the 2018 Emmy Awards, the actress accidentally revealed to E!’s Giuliana Rancic the sex of her baby-to-be.

I’m just gonna hold him in there hope for the best,” she shared, referencing her impending due date and slyly dropping the baby’s pronoun. “I just let it slip earlier didn’t I?” Yvonne added. “Breaking news!

Playing a character who is unable to conceive wasn’t always easy for the actress—even Chrissy Teigen jokingly tweeted about the juxtaposition.

During an interview with The Project, the star admitted she actually tried to hide her pregnancy while filming.

It was quite interesting hiding the pregnancy actually, as my first trimester was [from] episode nine through to the end of The Handmaid’s Tale,” she told the Australian talk show, per The Daily Mail

However, Strahovksi couldn’t keep her pregnancy a secret for long.

That’s why it got tricky. In the end I was over hiding it so I said, ‘you know what, I’m pregnant,’” she added. “People thought I had the flu. They were scared to come near me.

t certainly has been a busy time for Strahovski. In addition to welcoming her firstborn, the actress recently received an Emmy nomination for her role on the Hulu hit. At last year’s award show, the star also revealed she and Loden had tied the knot earlier that summer.

Congratulations to the happy family!

“The Handmaid’s Tale” star Yvonne Strahovski has come on board to star opposite Noomi Rapace in the Australian psychological thriller “Angel of Mine,” with Kim Farrant directing.

Rapace was attached to the project in early February and Fortitude International began pre-selling the picture at the European Film Market in Berlin. “Angel of Mine” is a remake of 2008 French film “L’Empreinte de L’Ange,” which follows a woman’s descent into madness after she loses her daughter and becomes convinced that another woman’s child is in fact her own. Strahovski, a native of Australia, will play a woman accused of stealing the daughter.

Farrant, whose first film was the Nicole Kidman-starring “Strangerland” in 2015 will direct from a script by Luke Davies (“Lion,” “Candy”) and David Regal. Production is scheduled to begin in April.

Production companies are SixtyFourSixty and Garlin Pictures. Producers are Brian Etting, Josh Etting, and Su Armstrong. Exec producers include Robert Ogden Barnum and Nadine de Barros of Fortitude International along with Davies and Brian Rosen. Screen Australia, in association with Film Victoria, provided the principal production investment.

Strahovski plays Serena Joy Waterford in Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which begins its second season on April 25. She portrayed Rene Carpenter in “The Astronaut Wives Club” and stars Fox’s “The Predator,” which opens on Sept. 14.

Strahovski is repped by Paradigm, Sue Barnett, McKeon/Myones Entertainment and attorney Gretchen Rush. The news was first reported by Deadline.

Yvonne Strahovski, perhaps best known to audiences for starring on NBC’s Chuck for five seasons, is in final negotiations to join the cast of The Predator, 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise.

Shane Black is directing the movie, which began production Monday in Vancouver. He also co-wrote the script with Fred Dekker.

Boyd Holbrook leads an ensemble cast that includes Room breakout Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen and Olivia Munn.

Strahovski will play the mother to Tremblay, a troubled boy who is accidentally drawn into the conflict with the fierce alien creatures by his father — her ex-husband — played by Holbrook.

Strahovski, who has had runs on Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, next co-stars in Hulu’s buzzy Margaret Atwood adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale with Elisabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes. She also has two movies in the can: He’s Out There, directed by Dennis Iliadis, and the Marc Forster-helmed drama All I See Is You, the latter starring Blake Lively.

Another day, another brilliant piece of The Handmaid’s Tale casting news. Joining leads Elisabeth Moss and Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski will be making her way to Gilead for Hulu’s adaptation of the dystopian Margaret Atwood novel that warns of how misogyny and the patriarchy will destroy the world, a message all too relevant in today’s election climate. Strahovski is set to star as Serena Joy, the wife of Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) and the head of his household’s staff. A former televangelist, Serena’s ideology is aligned with her husband’s, and she fought for the establishment of the oppressive and violent state of Gilead.

Most recently, Strahovski starred in the ABC miniseries The Astronaut Wives Club, but she’s best known for her regular role in the seventh and eighth seasons of Dexter and her leading role on NBC’s Chuck. On both, she kicked men’s asses (and on Dexter, she killed them). She’ll next be seen in Marc Forster’s psychological thriller All I See Is You, in which Blake Lively plays a blind woman who regains her sight and starts to see her marriage to her husband (Jason Clarke) in a new light. Strahovski plays Blake Lively’s best friend, a role we wouldn’t wish upon our worst enemies.

The Handmaid’s Tale will consist of 10 episodes and is scheduled to enter production in Toronto this fall. It is slated to premiere on Hulu in 2017. Netflix has its own Margaret Atwood adaptation in the works that’s currently filming in Ontario and stars Anna Paquin. No one could have predicted this streaming-service-feminist-literature-adaptation war.
