Alexis Bledel Leaving 'The Handmaid's Tale' Before Season 5

The performance of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” narrated by Alexis Bledel for the general audience, is now complete. The actress, who is 40 years old and announced her resignation from the Hulu series on Friday, will no longer be a part of the future dystopian series that aired its fourth season last spring. In a statement supplied to USA TODAY by Bledel’s management, the actress explained that she has decided to step away from “The Handmaid’s Tale” for the time being. Providing such authentic and life-changing moments for Emily, Bruce Miller, Hulu, MGM, the show’s cast and crew, and the show’s producers will forever hold an important place in my heart.

For her dual roles as Emily Malek/Ofglen and June Osborne/companion, Elisabeth Moss, who plays this character on Offred, was awarded one of the show’s four Emmy nominations in 2017 for her performance in the pilot episode.  It takes place in the totalitarian state of Gilead, which views girls as the state’s property and distributes them to create offspring.

Miller stated in front of a panel of Television Critics Association members before the premiere of Season 4 that “television and drama are safe places to witness your deepest nightmares lived out and kind of experience them at a distance.” It’s one thing to conjure up a horrible scenario in your head and then see it unfold on television; it’s entirely different to learn that it took place somewhere.

A government producer named Warren Littlefield stated that “We are extremely relevant.” “And to be honest, we’d want not to be.” The popularity of Alexis Bledel’s portrayal of Rory Gilmore in both the original “Gilmore Girls” and the revival “Gilmore Girls: A Year of Life” in 2016 is mainly attributable to her work in both of these shows.  She has been in both of them.

Does Alexis Bledel, played by Elisabeth Moss, have a way out of The Handmaid’s Tale?

Alexis Bledel released a statement in which she said, “After much deliberation, I chose to quit The Handmaid’s Tale at this time.” After everything was said and done, she expressed her gratitude to everyone who had a hand in making the show happen by saying, “I am grateful to Hulu, MGM, the cast, and crew for their support.” Alexis has portrayed the role of Emily in the critically acclaimed drama ever since the release of the first season in 2017.
