Here’s What Time Season 4 Episode 8 Drops on Hulu
The new episode will drop on Hulu late Tuesday night, June 1 or early morning Wednesday, June 2 depending on your time zone.
More specifically, Episode 8 drops at 12 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, June 2. In the Central time zone, that’s 11 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, June 1. In Mountain time, that’s 10 p.m. And on the West Coast in Pacific time, it will premiere at 9 p.m. Pacific on Tuesday, June 1. In Hawaii, you can watch at 6 p.m. on June 1, and in Alaska, that’s 8 p.m. on June 1 in Juneau. So even though The Handmaid’s Tale is advertised as premiering on June 2, it technically actually drops on June 1 in most of the U.S. time zones.
In summary, if you’re on the West Coast, you’ll be able to catch the new episode on primetime Tuesday night even before you go to sleep. But any time you go to watch Wednesday afternoon or evening, no matter what time zone you’re in within the U.S., the episode should be there.
How to Watch Online
In the United States right now, you can only watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 on Hulu in the United States. It’s not available on Netflix. The new season will eventually be added to Amazon Prime Video, where you can still go to watch previous seasons. But it’s not clear when the new season will be there.
You can watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Episode 8 at this link. Just search for The Handmaid’s Tale and the new episode will be on Hulu once it’s available. Plans start at just $5.99 a month, so it’s pretty inexpensive to watch.
Hulu is also offering a free trial, in case you want to try the service.
If you’re outside the U.S., you’ll need to watch The Handmaid’s Tale through a different streaming service if Hulu isn’t available in your country. Because of that, the time and date that it drops will be different for you too. In the UK, Channel 4 will have the new season, and Amazon Prime UK will also have it eventually, but not yet.
SBS Australia is showing each episode on the same day it premieres in the U.S. HBO Nordic will have the episodes to stream a day after they air in the U.S. In Romania, HBO will release the new episodes on the same day as Hulu.
What Happened Last Week?
Spoilers from last week are below.
Last week was a tough episode to watch, especially a controversial scene where some viewers think that June might have raped Luke. The scene happened right after she had a triumphant moment with Serena, where she treated Serena in nearly an identical way to how Serena had treated her. But then things took a dark turn, and some viewers think that when June was describing Serena in a monologue at the end, she might have also been describing herself. But Elisabeth Moss was amazing in this episode, portraying all the different sides of June as she dealt with freedom in Canada after years of abuse at the hands of Gilead.
