The full trailer for one of Hulu’s most anticipated original series, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s beloved dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, has finally arrived.

The series, starring Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss, recounts life in a totalitarian society called Gilead, formed after the United States is plunged into disarray by environmental disasters. Only a few remaining women are fertile, and they are forced to serve as handmaids, or sexual servants whose aim is to repopulate the world. Also starring in the series are Joseph Fiennes, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, and Max Minghella.

Check out the trailer for the project, hitting Hulu on April 26, right here:

It was also announced today that The Handmaid’s Tale will screen its premiere episode during the Tribeca Film Festival next month, followed by a conversation with the cast and director Reed Morano. Tribeca TV, the festival’s event for television programming, will also premiere episodes from the third seasons of Hulu’s dark family comedy Casual and Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Variety reports.
