The Handmaid's Tale Season 5 Key Art: Can June Wash Away The Past?

Heading into the fifth season of Hulu's hit series The Handmaid's Tale, June (Elisabeth Moss) will be facing some serious fallout from killing Fred (Joseph Fiennes) during the fourth season finale as she looks to build back some semblance of a life. But the "widow in mourning" Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) is turning the death to her advantage with a power grab that threatens not only June but the gains they've made against Gilead over the past four seasons. And that means only one thing… war. But how far will June go, and how many lines will she cross to end the battle once and for all? To drive that question home, the streaming service released a new key art poster that emphasizes the season's main theme line: "Some Sins Can't Be Washed Away":
