Perhaps some of these Hollywood stars will make an appearance in small-town Ontario this week.
In September, the cast and crew were in Ontario's Brant County for filming. They've had to make some changes this year, switching over to an in-studio set as opposed to on-location.
The TV series is an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, originally published in 1985. Season 4 is set to hit Hulu in 2021.
