The Hulu dystopian series "The Handmaid's Tale" was spinning on Friday's National Mall – delighting fans and possibly confusing. Stars Elisabeth Moss, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes were seen on the set, according to information posted on social networks.
Fans of the show were thrilled to have a glimpse of the new season as a fleet of maids lined up on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Protesters disguised as maids at confirmation hearings before Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last fall. In 2017, atook place during Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Colorado.

A trailer for the third season of the award-winning drama debuted at the Super Bowl earlier this month.
