Filming also involved a scene showing Canadian protestors demonstrating against Americans fleeing to their country.  

Several vehicles were pictured driving down the street with signs demanding Americans ‘go home’ and imagery of a middle finger.

In March, The Handmaid’s Tale star Samira Wiley revealed what fans can expect from Elisabeth’s character June in season five.

‘We’re picking up, really exactly where we left off,’ she said on The View. ‘Everyone who saw the season finale knows what happened with Commander Waterford. And so June, as always, is in a little bit of trouble.

‘But she’s in Canada now, and she’s living with Moira, my character, and also her husband, Luke,’ Samira added.

‘She has resources around her now that she hasn’t had before living in Gilead. So, we’ll see how that will play out. How June can fight Gilead from within Canada and the help of her friends,’ she continued.

According to Ann Dowd, who plays Aunt Lydia Clements, shooting started earlier this year.

‘We begin shooting in February,’ she told The Independent back in February.

She also teased some of the excitement awaiting fans: ‘I’ve read the first couple of episodes and all I can say is they’re so good. I just didn’t see any of this stuff coming. To be able to get to season five and you’re thinking, “What?!”

‘Not in an outlandish way where you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, how could that happen?” It’s like: “[gasps] that is fantastic.” It’s really good.’
