Fans of The Handmaid’s Tale Will Love Alias Grace

The television adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s book, The Handmaid’s Tale just wrapped up its first season, and avid fans of the show are disappointed that the show won’t be coming back until 2018. However, if you catch yourself biting your nails, yearning to see what happens next, Netflix might be able to keep you satisfied until the next season.

Recently, the video streaming service announced they will be adapting another Margaret Atwood book to television, this time, it’s Alias Grace. This story, much like The Handmaid’s Tale, is female driven. Starring Sarah Gadon and directed by Mary Harron, the show focuses on Grace Marks, a woman of the Victorian era who just served fifteen years in prison for a murder she has no recollection of committing. While working as a servant for the prison’s governor, she tries to remember details about the death of her former employer. Members of a nearby Methodist church believe she could still be proven innocent, and hire a psychologist to examine Grace’s dreams and childhood memories, perhaps to explain why she can’t remember anything.

The story is a chilling murder mystery, where viewers must wonder if Grace is a woman plagued by the sexist criminal justice system of her time, or truly is the cold blooded killer she is said to be. Premiering November 3rd, the show is already gaining fans just from the haunting teaser trailer, where Grace states to the audience, she’d much rather be a murderess than a murderer.
