The fifth episode of The Handmaid’s Tale aired last week, leaving fans hungry for more. And with what we have seen from the previews for tomorrow’s episode, we’re really concerned! Episode 5 of Season 5 is now available on Hulu. The schedule that we’ve given below will tell you when Season 5 Episode 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale will stream.

Season 5 Episode 6 will be Available Tuesday Night or Early Wednesday Morning

The Handmaid’s Tale, episode 6 of Season 5, will premiere on Hulu on Wednesday, October 12 at midnight Eastern. Let’s see this in a list to make this information easier to understand from coast to coast:

  • Eastern time: 12 a.m. Wednesday, October 12
  • Central time: 11 p.m. Tuesday, October 11
  • Mountain time: 10 p.m. October 11
  • Pacific time: 9 p.m. October 11
  • Alaska: 8 p.m. October 11

As a result, people on the West Coast and in Hawaii may watch the program before going to sleep instead of staying up late. While some people are talking about the show on Tuesday night, others may not see it until Wednesday. Try to stay away from spoilers!

How to Watch S5E6 Online

If you haven’t seen the latest episodes but want to catch up, Hulu will have them available for you. The sixth episode of Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale may be seen in the same way as the season’s prior five episodes. 

You may easily locate “The Handmaid’s Tale” by logging in and doing a search. It is an opportunity to jump in at Season 5 if you like. You may skip to the sixth episode if you’ve seen the previous four.

(If Episode 6 doesn’t show up in the menu but you’re sure it’s been released by now, you may still watch Episode 5 and fast-forward to the finish; Hulu will then take you to Episode 6.)

The Handmaid’s Tale is not presently accessible on any other streaming sites, including YouTube and Amazon Video, and there are currently no plans for the show to be added on Netflix. At the very least, for a significant amount of time. Given that The Handmaid’s Tale is an original series produced by Hulu, this makes perfect sense.

If you don’t already have Hulu, you may immediately join up for a monthly subscription. Combining Live TV with Disney+ makes one of the available packages a really desirable option. Additionally, students may be able to subscribe to Hulu for $2.99 a month. Click this link to see whether you qualify for one of these excellent discounts.

What Happened Last Week

You can see our full review of last week’s episode here. But we’re also providing a quick recap below. 


Things were intense last week, and we certainly ended on quite the cliffhanger! June and Luke were caught, but we’re not sure if it was by Gilead or a sympathizing group of some sort. Whoever it was, it looks like the might be separated again and it will be heart-wrenching. I really don’t want to see June tortured by Gilead all over again. 

Before things went south, June and Luke had some sweet moments at a bowling alley, and they interacted with a young spy who was truly “pure of heart,” June mused. Sadly, he didn’t survive the episode, which is pretty normal for pure-of-heart-people in this universe.

Meanwhile, Serena is still stuck in this quasi-Handmaid world, but it looks like she really wants June dead. Most interestingly, we got to look back at the early days of Gilead, including when Serena picked her very first Handmaid. She wasn’t happy about the whole thing back then. 

On top of all of that, Commander Lawrence has some strange plan for a New Bethlehem, and Commander Putnam is strongly opposed to it. Hopefully, we get more insight into that soon.
