The full cover for Margaret Atwood's sequel to her dystopian modern classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, is now out.

The Testaments, which comes out September 10, will be set fifteen years after Offred’s final scene in the original tale.

Atwood will host a midnight launch for The Testaments on September 9, followed by a live interview that will be broadcast worldwide the next day.

Atwood has previously said her sequel to The Handmaid's Tale is not connected to the hit Hulu series starring Elizabeth Moss, which has also extended Atwood’s novel; instead, it takes its inspiration in part from current events.

The sequel is available for preorder and is already an Amazon bestseller.
