The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret AtwoodCalling all Margaret Atwood fans–and potential fans who’ve had her books on their TBR pile for years— The Handmaid’s Tale is coming to Hulu in 2017 as a 10-episode adaptation.


Does it get any better?




–Elisabeth Moss is starring. You might remember her from Top of The Lake and that little show called Mad Men.

–Atwood is a consulting producer. (Always a plus for fans who don’t like when their favorite books get butchered for film/TV.)

–And if you’re one of the book fans who, um, wasn’t so much a fan of the ’90s film version it sounds like this has the potential for being great television–streaminvision?–so chin up.

Suggestions for what to do while we wait for 2017 and/or more news concerning the project: reread the book; finally yank it out of your TBR pile and crack it open for the first time; relive the Atwood tattoos at Book Riot Live 2015 if you attended or pretend you attended by viewing the photos; (re)watch everything Elisabeth Moss has starred in.
