The fifth season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” will not include Alexis Bledel.
Since the show’s first season in 2017, the actor has played Emily/Ofglen, a pivotal character in the critically praised Hulu drama.
The series is based on Margaret Atwood’s bestselling dystopian novel of the same name, which was created by Bruce Miller.
“I felt compelled to take a break from ‘The Handmaid‘s Tale’ at this time after much consideration. I’ll be eternally thankful to Bruce Miller for writing such honest and resonant passages for Emily, as well as Hulu, MGM, and the cast and crew for their help “In an interview with Variety, Bledel said:

Emily, an escaped handmaid and refugee in Canada who was known as Ofglen when she was still under the rule of the totalitarian, theonomic government of Gilead, won an Emmy for her role as Emily. She is also known for shows like “Gilmore Girls,” “Mad Men,” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films.
Emily was last seen in “The Handmaid’s Talefourth “‘s season finale, where her character joins forces with June, played by series heroine Elisabeth Moss, and other former handmaids to exact revenge on Gilead.
The premiere date for the multi-award-winning show’s fifth season has yet to be announced.
