Hulu’s Emmy-winning drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” is returning in April of next year, and production of Season 2 is now underway, the streaming service announced on Tuesday.

Hulu’s tweet features a short video clip of a handmaid running in the dark with a flashlight, hinting at the possible fate of Offred/June (Elizabeth Moss). Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger when Offred was carted off from the Commander’s house by the Eyes (spies in the dystopian world of Gilead).

The drama, based off Margaret Atwood’s acclaimed novel of the same name, has enjoyed an enormous amount of success. Among the most-nominated shows this year, Hulu took home eight Emmys after 13 nominations, including the prestigious Outstanding Drama Series category.

Moss won for her portrayal of lead character Offred; Ann Dowd won Outstanding Supporting Actress for playing Aunt Lydia; Bruce Miller won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series; and Reed Morano won for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.

You can watch Season 1 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu.
