Alexis Bledel revealed she will not be returning to Handmaid’s Tale Season 5, which leaves a question – what will happen to her character of Emily, who is also called Ofglen. 

The actress released a statement which included the following “After some reflection, I realized that I needed to take a step back from ‘The Handmaid’s Tale At this point.”

In “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Emily is a former college professor who holds a Ph.D. She initially appears, at first, to be apathetic and submissive. 

It is later revealed that she may be an active member of Mayday, which is the group of secret resistance. 

The last time she appears on the show is helping June in her assault on Gilead and the commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) as well as helping Moira (Samira Wiley) help and bring back the children released in the revolt. Together with her son Simon, Emily escapes to Canada.
