The Handmaid's Tale (2017-present)


Created by Bruce Miller

IMDB link

The distinctive cloaks and bonnets of the handmaids have been hard to miss around Toronto since production  began on Season 1 of the Margaret Atwood adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale - the production has traveled extensively around the city, making use of highly recognizable buildings, streets, businesses, and even TTC stations on a regular basis.

Filming on the Lakeshore Grounds


The handmaids arrived at the Lakeshore Grounds in Season 2 - filming took place at the 1898 patient-built Assembly Hall building on November 1, 2017.

We do not yet have a photograph to offer from the set. The image featured here is from a 2017 City of Toronto report.
