Are you eager to head back to the dark, bleak, depressing world of The Handmaid’s Tale? Good, because Hulu has released a new first look trailer for the upcoming not-so-binge-friendly series’ upcoming second season.

The teaser is set to a dark, female-sang cover of the Buffalo Springfield song, “For What it’s Worth,” and when set over the images, it makes for an impactful tease. Last season won an Emmy for best cinematography, and if that was one of the main attractors for you, then it doesn’t look like this season will disappoint. If possible, the visuals in this upcoming season look even more gorgeous than the first.

For those who don’t know, Handmaid’s Tale is set in the not-so-distant future. In that world, childbearing has become an uncommon thing, and it’s led to a series of governmental rulings that restrict the rights of these women, and put them in roles subservient to a male household head.

Throughout the first season, we saw flashbacks of the events that led to this new, oppressive world, and like all good forms of speculative fiction, it questions many things that we may recognize in our own society.

While this first look didn’t show a whole lot in terms of story, it seems clear that they’ll continue on with their relentless and bleak portrayal of the future.

The Handmaid’s Tale is set to return to Hulu on April 25, 2018.
