June (played by Elisabeth Moss) took one more step for the rebellion against Gilead when she smuggled over 50 children at the end of season three of The Handmaid’s Tale. When the show finally returns to Hulu after the coronavirus pandemic, fan theories have suggested the opening episodes could see the return of a major location.

Production on the fourth season of Hulu’s critically acclaimed dystopian series was put on hold this year amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Elisabeth Moss and the rest of the cast and crew were set up to begin filming in Toronto, but lockdown restrictions have forced The Handmaid’s Tale into an unexpected hiatus.

Originally expected to return to screens this year, viewers could be waiting for many more months to see June and the Handmaid’s fight for freedom continue.

The first season faithfully adapted the vision of Margaret Atwood’s book of the same name, in which Handmaid Offred begins a complicated relationship with Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes).

In the television series, June is coerced into visiting a seedy club full of corrupt Commanders and indentured prostitutes named Jezebel’s.

While most women are either forced to serve the elite of Gilead or sent to the colonies, some are given the chance to escape a life of brutal labour by becoming subservient prostitutes in clubs like Jezebel’s.

The former hotel played a major role in the first season, but has only appeared briefly in subsequent instalments.

However, one fan took to Reddit to propose the location could be reclaimed by the rebellious Handmaids as their underground resistance expands in season four.

Redditor bigfoot114 posted: “So after completing Season 3, we saw that June has been shot and her Handmaid friends Janine, Alma, Brianna, and others have come to rescue June and they are carrying her off somewhere but we don’t know where.

“I have thought a lot about what will happen next when we are finally able to begin watching Season 4 and this is my prediction.”

The universally praised series reached new thrilling heights as season three concluded with the biggest cliffhanger yet, as a violent scuffle with a Gilead guard left June with a potentially fatal gunshot wound.

Thankfully, her fellow Handmaids quickly came to the rescue, leaving many fans wondering where she could be taken to recover from her severe wound.

This observant fan has suggested Jezebel’s could finally make its comeback in season four to provide June a safe haven against the watchful eye of Gilead.

They continued: “It probably won’t take very long for Gilead to discover that the Lawrence household was responsible for executing this operation.

“So clearly, the Guardians are going to be looking EVERYWHERE for June, Joseph (if he decides to hide) and the Marthas Beth and Sienna. So where would they go to hide and where will June be taken? Jezebel’s!”

New character for the series Commander Lawrence was manipulated by June into reluctantly helping with the Handmaid’s smuggling operation at the end of season three.

With such a key Gilead player assisting the rebellion, it’s only a matter of time before the Gilead Guardians start breaking down doors to find June.

Finally, the fan added: “I believe the Handmaids will hand June off to the Marthas and they will sneak her into Jezebels where she will be cared for by the Marthas until she recovers.”

When season four finally returns to Hulu, Jezebel’s could provide the wounded Handmaid the perfect starting point for her to heal up and light the fires of rebellion all over again.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 1-3 are available to watch on Now TV.
