Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes are seen in wintry Toronto, Canada this week while filming season four of The Handmaid’s Tale.

The actors, who play a married couple on the show, were pictured on Friday as cameras rolled for the Hulu dystopian drama. 

Yvonne, 38, who plays Commander Waterford’s wife Serena Joy, wore her official turquoise garb while Joseph, 50, who plays Fred Waterford, could be seen a formal suit and smart black coat.

The statuesque actress appeared to be sporting a rounded belly, hinting that her character, thought to be infertile, might finally conceive her own child in the upcoming season. 

The duo were pictured walking out of building which appeared to be a detainment facility.

And they put on a united front as they held hands while making their way past guards which lined the walkway. 

Filming on a fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale is continuing after the COVID-19 pandemic halted production last year and then posed logistical problems as cameras began to roll again.

In an interview with THR.com last month, showrunner George Miller revealed that the global pandemic is influencing his thoughts about where the Hulu original series goes in the future.

‘I know where I am in the story, and I do feel like we’re kind of reaching kind of a pivot point,’ Miller said. ‘It just feels like it’s a good time to reassess what you were thinking, just because the story world has opened up because the real world has changed so much.’

Miller shared: ‘I think the country feels like things are so up in the air, they’re waiting for them to ‘go back to normal.’ And part of the lesson of the show is they never do.

‘You don’t go back to normal, and June’s been coming to terms with that for a long time,’ he said. 

‘At the beginning, she just wanted her life back exactly the way it was. Now so much has changed. So I think that’s the American story right now… And I think that is what I’m looking at.’

A fifth season of the dystopian drama has been greenlit by Disney which owns Hulu even though season four is still in the process of being made.

‘We’re still shooting, kind of in the middle of the season,’ Miller explained. 

‘Honestly, we’re in a situation where we have to make do with what we can get our hands on.’ he said regarding locations, cast and logistics. 

‘In the end, it was surmountable, and I think we’re making an excellent show, and I’m really proud of what we’re doing, but it was hard, and it continues to be hard.’  

At the end of season three, June played by Elisabeth Moss has freed children of Gilead and almost died in the process.

Season four will follow her as she tastes freedom herself for the first time in a long while as she experiences life again not ‘under the thumb of Gilead’.
