Hulu and Amazon this week will add nine new TV shows and movies to their subscription Video on Demand lineups, including a much-anticipated original drama from Hulu.
The new title list from Hulu will include the premiere episode of season two of The Handmaid’s Tale (pictured above), the 2017 Emmy award winner for Best Drama. Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, a woman trapped in a totalitarian regime that treats females as sex slaves.
The first season of the Hulu original drama was a hit with the critics, scoring a 95 out of a possible 100 at RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews.
“Haunting and vivid, The Handmaid’s Tale is an endlessly engrossing adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel that’s anchored by a terrific central performance from Elisabeth Moss,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
Amazon Prime this week will debut All or Nothing: Dallas Cowboys, an Amazon original sports documentary that takes you behind the scenes of ‘America’s Team.’
Another notable addition on both Hulu and Amazon this week: Season five of Vikings, the History Channel drama
