Canadians, you can finally take a deep breath.

We will in fact be able to watch The Handmaid’s Tale.  This is a relief to many of us who since seeing the trailer for the HULU series last month, have been wondering how and when we’d be able to watch it.

Shows on HULU are tricky because we don’t have an equivalent here in Canada, so it usually comes up to the networks if they want to pick it up, like the W Network did with the Good Wife spinoff The Good Fight.

So for a while, it looked like the story written by Canadian Margaret Atwood and shot in Canada was going to be homeless, but luckily Bravo has stepped in and will be showing the first hours of the ten-episode series this Sunday! Granted, it’s a few days after American audiences will get to start watching it, but whatever, it’ll be worth the wait.

Even better news, when the show is done airing on Bravo, the show will be streaming in its entirety on CraveTV. If you don’t have the streaming service, it’s $7.99 a month, and the first month is free.

The Handmaid’s Tale stars an amazing cast with Elizabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley and Joseph Fiennes.

So how are you going to watch? Every Sunday or wait for the whole thing at once?
