Given that the first season of 'The Handmaid's Tale' only had ten episodes, it would be understandable if you assumed the same for season 2 and figured we were nearing the end of the series.

The good folk at Hulu however have given us three extra episodes this season, meaning the season finale won't be until July 11th (or July 12th on RTÉ2).

Although given how hard to watch this show can be, we're not quite sure that's a good thing yet.

This week's episode (airing today, June 14th) will be the ninth in the season.

You can catch 'The Handmaid's Tale' on Thursday's on RTÉ2 at 10.30pm.
