Rory Gilmore Gets Abducted in Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Trailer
A few weeks ago, we teased you with an exclusive glimpse at Hulu’s new adaptation of Margaret Atwood‘s The Handmaid’s Tale. On Saturday, January 7, Hulu finally released a trailer clip for the anticipated series, and it’s as creepy as one would expect.
The trailer, albeit 31-seconds long, sets the tone perfectly: dark, desolate and effing creepy. Not to mention, the trailer also shows actresses Elisabeth Moss (as Offred) and Samira Wiley (as Moira) in character, along with another familiar face resembling that of a certain Gilmore girl. Yes, you guys! They got Rory Gilmore, a.k.a Alexis Bledel!

Bledel will star as the handmaid Ofglen, Offred’s companion who is inseminated by the society’s upper class against her will. According to Hulu, Ofglen’s character is quite the stickler when it comes to following the rules of the Gilead system, however she eventually becomes a rebel.
“She is broken down in many ways but the person she once was is still underneath and comes out at times,” Bledel told Television Critics Press Association. “She’s always paying attention to everything. She’s essentially a spy in any ways. She is gathering information from everyone she comes into contact with.”
About The Handmaid’s Tales, courtesy of Hulu:
Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
The Handmaid’s Tale is scheduled to premiere April 26 on Hulu.
