Blessed be the fruit, Elisabeth Moss is returning as the tough as nails June for the long-awaited season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale, the highly successful TV adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel. The story plays out in a nightmarish future US, where fertility rates have fallen and the totalitarian government, Gilead, has forced fertile women like June to live as concubines or ‘handmaids’. Don’t miss the penultimate season with our guide on how to watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 online wherever you are.

    Spanning beyond the parameters of the original novel, in season 4, June finally manages to flee Gilead and reach Canada. There, finding herself failed by international justice, she takes matters into her own hands, and in a momentous finale, we see her and a group of other former Handmaids and Marthas, literally tear her captor and rapist, Commander Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes), to pieces in a cathartic act of revenge.

    Alongside Moss, the mainstay cast is back for season 5, including Yvonne Strahovski (Serena), Madeline Brewer (Janine), Ann Dowd (Aunt Lydia), O-T Fagbenle (Luke), Max Minghella (Max) and Bradley Whitford (Commander Lawrence), to name but a few of the Emmy-winning line-up. They are joined this season by Hawaii Five-0 star Christine Ko as resourceful Gilead refugee Lily and New Amsterdam’s Genevieve Angelson as Gilead’s rising star, Mrs. Wheeler.

    With a sixth and final season already confirmed by Hulu, season 5 will reveal events in the aftermath of Commander Fred’s brutal killing. Will June have to go into hiding, or will she risk going back into Gilead? Will pregnant and exiled Serena be her next target? Be sure to catch the premiere and ensure you know how to watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 online and stream from abroad with the help of a VPN (opens in new tab).

    Where can I watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 online for free

    There are a couple of countries around the world that are broadcasting new episodes on their free-to-air channels. This includes Australia, where you can watch episodes at 8.30pm AEST on SBS from Thursday, September 14 – not long after their air in the US.

    Thereafter you can catch-up on SBS On Demand (opens in new tab), where anyone can make a free account. And if you’re an Aussie abroad, all you’ll need is a VPN (detailed below) to access this free stream.

    The UK will also be able to watch the new season for free, though confirmation on when it’ll begin airing has yet to be confirmed.

    How can I watch The Handmaid’s Tale online from anywhere

    If you’re abroad right now, there’s still hope that you can watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 online. While you’ll find the content is geo-blocked on your chosen streaming service, you can get around that with a trusty VPN – and potentially access a free stream.

    Connect to one of the best VPN providers and you’ll be able to port yourself anywhere in the world to watch The Handmaid’s Tale.

    While there are loads of VPNs, not all of them are created equal when it comes to unblocking the likes of Hulu, All 4, SBS, Crave, and more. For this, we recommend:

    How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions

    If you’re outside of your preferred broadcaster’s boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 as if you were right at home. Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

    • VPN – standing for virtual private network – offers security and anonymity as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
    • As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
    • Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you’re browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
    • When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that’s suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, including VPN for Mac and even a range of fairly nifty free VPNs.
    • Once you’ve made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it
    • To watch The Handmaid’s Tale season 5, all you need to do is select a country showing it from its list of available servers and connect. You’ll then be able to hop over geo-restrictions, with the likes of BBC iPlayer and Netflix opening their online gates to you.
    • We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk-free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money-back guarantee (opens in new tab).
