TV writer, producer and creator of 'The Handmaid's Tale' Bruce Miller is addressing those rumours surrounding the end of the series.

Word first got around that 'The Handmaid's Tale' was coming to an end when Hulu executive Jordan Helman said negotiations were under way "literally right now" over "the best way to end 'The Handmaid's Tale'."

The dystopian drama aired its fourth season earlier this year.

Ahead of the season four premiere, it got renewed for a fifth season last December.

In an interview for Deadline’s Contenders TV virtual event, Bruce Miller said of the series: "I’m never looking to end it.

"I work with a group of very undifficult people; we have a lovely group of writers, a spectacular group of actors and visiting directors and our crew.

"What they did this year was amazing. They made this entire show during Covid. We shot the entire thing for two weeks.

"We wrote every script so that we could change the story so that we could do it with different actors but they made it themselves.

"I was here in Los Angeles and Liz [Garbus] was up there with executive producer Elisabeth Moss with all that experience."

'The Handmaid's Tale' is also getting a sequel series, based on Margaret Atwood's 2019 novel 'The Testaments'.

Miller continued: "The team made an incredible TV show. So I’m not so quick to say, ‘oh, you know, let’s just, walk away.’

"I don’t know how you felt about the pandemic, but I certainly learned the things of my life that are pretty rare and working with these people is one of them.

"So, honestly, yes, I know what the end is and I’m not going to overstay my welcome but I’m also not going to rush off if I don’t have to because as long as I am writing for Elisabeth Moss, you know, it really doesn’t get much better."
