'The biggest barrier of season 2 was season 1, ' Miller told Entertainment Weekly. But at a certain point, you can't spend all your time second-guessing things.

Miller is particularly excited about an upcoming scene that depicts a handmaid's funeral in Gilead.

Per Hulu's official synopsis, Season 2 is "shaped by Offred's pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead". The rest of season 2 will focus on world-building, with input from Atwood, who serves as consulting producer on the series. You can try, but you won't do it.

Miller says the season will also expand on the lives of refugees who escape Gilead (such as Samira Wiley's Moira) as well as the prisoners who have been sent to work at the polluted "Colonies" scattered throughout America.

'Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling, ' he said.

'Lizzie is such an incredible partner on this with me. Sometimes while writing the scripts, I just really wanted to surprise her.
