The Handmaid’s Tale fans have been waiting a long time to find out who Serena Waterford is, and now it looks like she might be pregnant. In The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3, Serena and Fred Waterford were arrested. Serena brought her husband to Canada to find baby Holly, also known as Nichole by the Waterfords. Fred revealed what Serena did to June Osborn (Elisabeth Moss) and Nick Blaine (Max Minghella).

In March 2021, Hulu confirmed The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 release date with a new promo trailer. The first three episodes are expected to drop on April 28, and the preview hinted June’s journey is just getting started. Toward the end of the promo, Fred pulled out a sonogram from his jail cell.

A few days after The Handmaid’s Tale dropped its first season 4 trailer, Hulu dropped a short clip featuring Serena. At first, Mrs. Waterford pleaded with Fred, as she wanted her daughter back. But Fred called Serena “delusional”. “We can talk about that later,” Tuello said. “You’re pregnant. Congratulations.”

The official Handmaid’s Tale Twitter account suggested the pregnancy will change everything. Executive producer Bruce Miller suggested viewers will still feel conflicted about Serena moving forward. He also hinted the character will “answer for the horrible things” she has done.

New episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 will air on Hulu starting April 28 in the US.
