The Testaments is Margaret Atwood’s followup to The Handmaid’s Tale. The novel takes place over 15 years after Offred’s story leaves off, with the story narrated by three female characters. Ahead of the release of the novel, Hulu and MGM are in talks with showrunner Bruce Miller to discuss how to adapt the story into an extension of the thriving Hulu series.

Steve Stark, MGM’s president of television production, said in a statement Wednesday, “Margaret Atwood is a literary icon who continues to delight and challenge readers through her provocative and compelling prose. She has been an incredible creative partner and resource to MGM throughout the production of Handmaid’s and we look forward to working with her on the story’s exciting next chapter.”

Hulu’s Craig Erwich, senior vice president of originals, added: “Margaret Atwood is one of the visionary storytellers of her generation. From her award-winning poetry, short-stories and novels, Margaret has continually pushed boundaries and broken barriers to bring innovative stories to life.”

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood will be published September 10. The Handmaid’s Tale has been renewed for season 4 with no release date announced yet.
