Hulu Announces Premiere Dates for ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘The Path’ & More

Hulu is ready to get their 2018 television season underway after recently announcing four series premiere dates and who can blame them? Their critically acclaimed series The Handmaid’s Tale is still fresh off it’s huge Emmy win for Outstanding Drama Series and viewers have been anxiously awaiting for Aaron Paul’s cult drama The Path to return for its third season.

On top of those two Hulu staples, the streaming service also released premiere dates for two new original series, The Looming Tower and Hard Sun. So, it looks like 2018 is already shaping up to be a great year for what once was just a website designed to house already aired television episodes.
