Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has just added The Handmaid’s Tale: Season One to its line-up, scheduling a Blu-Ray Disc and DVD version for release in March.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning, best-selling novel, the eight-time Emmy Awards Winner, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.
Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birth rate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the castes of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.
The release will feature all ten episodes from the first season with a total running length of 545 minutes. In addition, the 3-disc set also includes two brand new Featurettes that take viewers deeper into the world of Gilead.
The Handmaid’s Tale will be available to own on March 13 as a high definition Blu-Ray Disc for $49.99 or on DVD for $39.99.
