Clea DuVall is coming to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and her role is crucial

Clea DuVall HBO Emmy's

Get ready, Gilead: According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Veep” actress Clea DuVall is coming to The Handmaid’s Tale season 2. Even better? She’ll guest-star as Sylvia, Emily’s (Alexis Bledel) wife and co-parent.

The second season will reportedly see Gilead take control of America, and follow Sylvia, Emily and their son as they attempt to escape to Canada. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t go so well. Remember when Emily was crowned gender traitor?

This is the first piece of casting news for the second season of the Emmy winning Hulu drama.

The site also reports that Bledel and Amanda Brugel, who plays Rita, have been promoted to series regulars for round two.

No word on the premiere date yet, but the series will return sometime in 2018.

Also, and perhaps more importantly, this will be the first time Duvall and Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss have reunited on screen since “Girl, Interrupted.” We can’t wait.
