The Handmaid's Tale is one of the most critically loved television shows of this year. It's based on a classic dystopian novel, it's scarily timely, it's got an amazing lead performance from Elisabeth Moss. What else does it need?

How about Drake?

In a recent conversation with author Junot Diaz in the Boston Review, Margaret Atwood, the author of the novel on which the TV series is based and a co-producer on the series, said that the show would go better with Drizzy. It came up when Diaz praised Atwood, who is Canadian, saying that she and Drake were Toronto's "two global superstars." That, somehow, led to this:

JD: So, have you met Drake?

 Naturally, people were thrilled at the prospect of their favorite Canadian author and their favorite Canadian rapper potentially joining forces.

Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale is scheduled to air sometime in 2018. Atwood is reported to have a "key role" in shaping the events of the season. If she happens to include a bearded Canadian smuggler who likes to sing and rap on the side, we have the perfect guy.
