After receiving 13 Emmy nominations including Best Drama Series, Elisabeth Moss spoke with EW about what can fans expect from the second season of The Handmaid’s Tale. Moss was also nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Handmaid Offred in the Margaret Atwood Adaptation.
The actress told EW that even though this isn’t the first time she’s received Emmy nominations, this time, as the producer, it feels much more personal. She added that when producing it’s really about being on the inside of something so she can’t help but feel different.
Moss loves it when fans get personal as well, hearing their reactions and thoughts about the first season.
“Having the outside perspective is really moving and gratifying and also really fun. It’s really fun for me to hear people’s questions and thoughts and to hear if they are Team Nick or Team Luke and I eat it all up. I love that stuff. It’s very fun for me because it feels personal and I have my own opinions about things, too. I feel like a fan as well. I’m asked a lot which team I’m on but I never say.”
When asked about what fans can expect from the second season, Moss replied that even though she has just read the outline for the first episode, she can say that “[it]’s insane!… There is literally no way that anyone can guess what happens. You can try, but you won’t do it. It’s incredible. We’re really looking to blow people away, and we have every intention to break [the story] open and go even further in all directions. We have no intention of doing anything else than being even more balls to the wall than we were in season 1.”
