Cover your eyes and look away because "highly visible graphic content" is being filmed in Cambridge for The Handmaid's Tale.

Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale has been spotted shooting its fifth season all over Ontario, and this week Cambridge is up for a less-than-PG visit.

The city of Cambridge put out a notice on April 22 warning residents that filming will be taking place for Ruby Road, which is the rumoured codename for The Handmaid's Tale. From April 26 to 29, filming in the city will "involve some highly visible graphic content which may be disturbing."

The city is advising residents to avoid the filming locations.

April 26 filming locations

Filming will take place on April 26 at Mill Race Park and Living Levee Trail from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. as well as on Brant Road North from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.

If you're driving around Brant Road North or the Park Hill Road bridge, you can expect some "intermittent traffic control," but the bridge will only be impacted outside of rush hours.

Tuesday's shoots have special advisories of residential filming, simulated violence, horror elements and replica weapons.

April 27-29 filming locations

Filming for the rest of the week will talk place at a private property at 171 Guelph Ave. from around 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

However, residents may want to be wary of "intermittent traffic control on Guelph Avenue between Sheffield Street and Fisher Mills Road."

The city of Cambridge says it is "grateful for the tremendous support the film industry receives from our local businesses, community members, and visitors."

Surrounding businesses will not be impacted by the production, and the city is reminding residents to "please continue to shop local and support our small businesses."
