AXN India to premiere The Handmaid's Tale

AXN India will bring one of the best drama shows of 2017 - The Handmaid’s Tale, for its viewers from February 5, every Monday at 10:00 PM. Based on Margaret Atwood’s novel, the show emerged as a winner with contenders like Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, This is Us, amongst others.
The show is not available on any OTT platform and AXN will be the first to bring this much-awaited show to its Indian viewers. The show has already won 8 Emmy awards and 2 Golden Globe award, for Best TV Series in the Drama category and for Best Actress in a Drama Series for actress Elisabeth Moss. It also has a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 8.6 rating on IMDB, making it a must watch show.
The dystopian series is a tale of tyranny, a taut thriller and a heart-wrenching drama, packed with incredible female performances. The show is set in a nightmare world called Gilead, where consensual sex is an illusion and gender a cruel hierarchy, where women are forbidden to hold jobs, own property or even read and who exist solely to conceive and bear children.
