The final episode of The Handmaid's Tale season 5 is out this week. Episode 10, Safe, arrives on Hulu in the US, and on the on free-to-air Australian channel SBS. It's also now landed on Channel 4 in the UK and only two episode deep currently. The final episode of the season 5 airs on 9th/10th November in the US/Aus. You'll have to wait a while longer in the UK. Make sure you know how to watch The Handmaid's Tale season 5 for free from wherever you are now.
Season 5 picks up from the (rather shocking) events of the season 4 finale. June faces consequences for her killing, while Serena attempts to raise her profile in Toronto as Gilead's influence creeps into Canada. Meanwhile, June, Luke and Moira fight Gilead from a distance as they continue their mission to reunite with Hannah.
The Handmaid's Tale stars Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as June, rebel leader trying to bring justice to a totalitarian society in which handmaids have no bodily autonomy, are abused, mistreated, and used as breeders. If you're looking for a dark and disturbingly brilliant binge, you'll love this "high-speed intergalactic soap opera" and its whip-fast plot.

Travelling away outside Australia this week? You can always use a VPN to access SBS from overseas . We recommend using ExpressVPN. Details below.
Watch The Handmaid's Tale season 5 from abroad with a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to The Handmaid's Tale season 5 rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, and can fool streaming services into thinking that you're located somewhere else in the world.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which we rate as the best VPN for streaming. It offers a 100 percent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN hits it for six with a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up.
