The Handmaid's Tale season four is due to land on Hulu in the near future and production on the new season has just resumed. Elisabeth Moss will reprise her role as the fearless June Osborne, and fans are wondering if she will join forces with Commander Lawrence. McKenna Grace has just been cast as the character Mrs Keys, and here is everything you need to know about her character.
Production for the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale resumed earlier in September 2020 in Toronto.
The news of the production shut-down was announced by actress Moss, who posted a photo of a red stage curtain with the message: “We shut down production of season four in order to preserve the health and safety of our cast and crew and join the world in an attempt to flatten the curve.
“This show is my life and this cast and crew is my family. Nothing is more important than making sure they and everyone around them is safe.
“We hope to be back in production as soon as it’s safe to do so. In the meantime stay safe and healthy and take care of yourselves. So much love from our family to yours.”

However fans of the Hulu hit series will be pleased to hear production has resumed, and actress Grace will be a fierce addition to the cast.
She will play the role of Mrs Keys - the teenage wife of a Commander who is much older than she is. Her character is described as being intelligent and not afraid to rule the roost.
Mrs Keys will become known for having a rebellious streak, and fans will witness a number of different sides to her.
She comes across as calm on the outside, but there is an element of insanity on the inside which may make her the next big antagonist of the series.
Production for season four was shut down in March and fans are already looking forward to seeing more of cast members such as Ann Dowd (Aunt Lydia) and Sam Jaeger whose character Mark Tuello has been made a series regular.
