After a season dripping in tension, anarchy and the usual tear-jerking misery of Gilead, The Handmaid's Tale season three has reached its final episode. And while that is sad news, there is a bright side - we've tracked down all of the information you need to watch The Handmaid's Tale finale online.

Watch The Handmaid's Tale online: when and where?

We understand that the epic final episode of The Handmaid's Tale season will go live at midnight ET, 9pm PT on Hulu.

If you don't live in the US or if you will be out of the country on holiday when it airs, scroll down to see your viewing options.

We've seen June go to hell and back (a good few times now!) and judging from the promos we've seen from the finale, we can imagine a lot of big twists and turns.

What will happen to June? Will Eleanor betray everyone? These are the big questions we're hoping to have answered in this final episode. Considering this season has been extra heart-wrenching (even by The Handmaid's Tale levels!) we're expecting to be left a little bit lost for words.
