Fans of HULU’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ can breathe a sigh of relief, as Ofglen (played by Alexis Bledel) will be returning for Season 2.
In spite of how grim the character’s outlook seemed in Season 1, the actress will be a series regular for its sophomore run.
“The Handmaid’s Tale“ was adapted from the 1985 Margaret Atwood novel about a future where the US has become Gilead, a totalitarian society where fertile women are forced into sexually serving the men.
Production on the series will begin this fall, with a Season 2 premiere slated for 2018.
Fifth Harmony has decided not to change their name after all. The group has been a family of four since former member Camila Cabello left six months.
“It was obviously a thought, because it was a prevalent thing that there’s 4 of us not 5. Regardless, we were all very united in the fact that we didn’t want to change the name,” said bandmate Lauren Jauregui to MTV News. “Fifth Harmony is the name we grew up with and we worked for and it’s our brand. It’s who we are. It’s our entire moments. It’s what we spent five years on.”
The group seems content with having just four and there’s a special reason why. “The fans named us Fifth Harmony,” Dinah Jane Hansen said. “And now they’re the fifth member.” Aw!

Zendaya covers the July issue of VOGUE magazine.
In this issue, the actress dishes on ‘Spider-Man,’ her first love and much more.
On her other demands for K.C. Undercover:
“I wanted to make sure that she wasn’t good at singing or acting or dancing. That she wasn’t artistically inclined. I didn’t want them to all of a sudden be like, ‘Oh, yeah, and then she sings this episode!’ No. She can’t dance; she can’t sing. She can’t do that stuff. There are other things that a girl can be. I want her to be martial arts–trained. I want her to be able to do everything that a guy can do. I want her to be just as smart as everybody else. I want her to be a brainiac. I want her to be able to think on her feet. But I also want her to be socially awkward, not a cool kid. I want her to be normal with an extraordinary life.”
On the end of her first real relationship:
“It was my first love. It wasn’t a good ending.” There have been no relationships since, she says, but she is moving on. “You know you’re OK in a breakup when your first thought is not, What did I do wrong? That was the dumbest decision of your life, and you’re going to regret it forever.”
