The Testaments hasn’t even been released yet, but it’s already headed to the small screen.
TIME received the scoop from Hulu and MGM that the two are partnering to develop Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale for TV.
The showrunner for the TV version of The Handmaid’s Tale is involved in discussions of how best to adapt the sequel, according to TIME — and that could either mean a standalone show or an incorporation into the existing show.
And details are also out about the audio version of The Testaments, which releases the same day as the print and ebook versions.
Ann Dowd (who plays Aunt Lydia on the Hulu show), Bryce Dallas Howard, and Mae Whitman lead the audiobook cast, as the three main characters of the book ... and Atwood herself makes a cameo.
TIME, which also got first dibs on the audiobook news, warns of mild spoilers in its article; the Bookseller’s reporting on TIME’s news should be safer.
