The Handmaid’s Tale season 5: First photo of Yvonne Strahovski’s Serena

The Handmaid's Tale 5 SerenaAs you prepare for the premiere of The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 this September, we’re happy to have some more news. Today, that includes a photo of Yvonne Strahovski as Serena.

The image above focuses on Commander Waterford’s widow in mourning — or, “mourning” as we should say it. We saw the state of her relationship with Fred throughout most of season 4, but this character has always been someone about appearances and posturing. What made her such a dangerous villain was that she was well aware of the horrors of Gilead and offered no sympathy for those suffering along the way. She was manipulative, violent, and just overall awful.

So what does the character have planned for season 5? On the surface, we imagine that the writers are going to put Serena in a situation where she is still dangerous, especially since the influence of Gilead is going to continue to spread within Canada. Meanwhile, June is not done with her pursuit of justice, and she will be looking for whatever allies that she can.

We tend to imagine that Serena is very well one of those characters who could survive until the end of the show, but not because anyone is rooting for her. The truth is that every story like this needs a main adversary and while technically there are many within this world, she remains one of the most prominent ones for Elisabeth Moss’ character.
