If there was one left-field TV hit of 2017, it was Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale. The dystopian drama, based off the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, instantly became a hit when its first three episodes debuted on the streaming service. Anticipation for Season 2 has been at an all time high after its myriad Emmy wins, and it's just a few short weeks away from finally arriving. Fans of The Handmaid's Tale will be thrilled know this, as the show's first season left a ton of questions up in the air. Here are the 8 biggest questions (in no particular order) that have got to be answered during Season 2.

What Happened To Offred?

First and foremost, The Handmaid's Tale is going to need to answer the major cliffhanger that its Season 1 finale left us on. The final moments of the season saw Offred/June (Elisabeth Moss) taken into a black van toward an unknown destination. While one would assume that the protagonist's various indiscretions and Gilead rule breaking would result in death or violence, Nick assured her that everything would be fine. This was particularly puzzling, especially as the show's Season 2 trailer shows Offred covered in blood, and seemingly on trial. Whatever happens to her, it's clear that Season 2 is about to expand the world of the series quite a bit. Although since June is seemingly pregnant, she may also have some good fortune and protection coming her way.

How Will Aunt Lydia Get Revenge?

The Handmaid's Tale Season 1 finale was emotional and harrowing, but there were brief moments of hope. When the Handmaids were summoned for a Salvaging ceremony, things took a turn when it was revealed that they were required to stone Janine to death. After Ofglen #2 gets beaten for refusing, Offred and the rest of the girls drop their stones and apologize to Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd). Lydia ultimately saved their lives from the guards, but she makes it clear they will be punished for disobeying her wishes. The question is: how? We're shown brief clips of a gallows and new black robes for the Handmaids in the trailer, so it's anyone's guess.
