      Canadian TV station Bravo has just announced that it will be airing The Handmaid's Tale starting April 30.

      The 10-episode first season begins with a special two-hour premiere event on Sunday, April 30, with the one-hour drama continuing to air Sundays beginning May 7.

      The entire first season will also launch on CraveTV this spring, following the season finale on Bravo.

      The Handmaid's Tale is an adaptation of Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian novel about a totalitarian society ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.

      The production stars Elisabeth Moss as Offred, Joseph Fiennes as Commander Waterford, and Yvonne Strahovski as the Commander's wife Serena Joy.
