The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Episode 9 is almost here. Last week, June sought justice, but we were introduced to a disturbing number of people in Canada who are actually siding with the Waterfords. Here’s a look at exactly what time you can start watching the new episode when it premieres.

Season 4 Episode 9 Drops on Hulu Late Tuesday Night
Season 4 Episode 9 of The Handmaid’s Tale, called “Progress,” will drop on Hulu late Tuesday night, June 8 or early morning Wednesday, June 9. The exact time varies depending on where you’re living. (Note that these times are only relevant for the United States. Viewers in other countries are on a completely different schedule.)
Let’s get down to specifics. Episode 9 drops at 12 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, June 9. In the Central time zone, that’s 11 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, June 8. 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 8. In Hawaii, you can watch at 6 p.m. on June 8, and in Alaska, that’s 8 p.m. on June 8 in Juneau.
So yes, you read that correctly. Most new episodes are dropping on Tuesday night, June 8, even though the episode is advertised as premiering on June 9. In fact, if you’re on the West Coast you can even catch it late primetime on Tuesday. But everyone else who tunes in any time on Wednesday should be able to see it.
How to Watch Online
In the United States, you can only watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 on Hulu. 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 there yet.
You can watch The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Episode 9 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, June and Luke both had separate scenes where they ignored someone’s stated boundaries, but thought they were doing so for a good reason. Luke ignored June’s request not to show up to her testimony, because he wanted to better understand what she had been through. June ignored Emily’s request not to face off against the Aunt who had hurt her, because she thought facing her would make Emily stronger. June also faced her own hardship when she testified against the Waterfords. But as June explained, she was ready to do that and wanted them to face justice.
Disturbing, though, was the scene where we saw people in Canada actually cheering for the Waterfords and demanding their release, and how that emboldened Serena and Fred. Read our full review here.
