    This season is three episodes longer, but it is premiering the same week as last year.  How are they going to make sure that everything is eligible or are they?

    I’m not sure how it works with eligibility, but airing episodes during the voting process could help them. I guess they can send early screeners.

    Ten episodes per season is perfect for the show, they are just milking it as much as they can. I started disliking 13-episodes seasons, especially on Netflix.

    That’s what GoT did for S6 if I remember correctly.

    “Showrunner Bruce Miller stated that he envisioned ten seasons of the show, stating “Well, you know, honestly, when I started, I tried to game out in my head what would ten seasons be like? If you hit a home run, you want energy to go around the bases, you want enough story to keep going, if you can hook the audience to care about these people enough that they’re actually crying at the finale.”” wtf? 10 seasons is too much and this show could easily suck after 4-5 (?) seasons

    Screeners are not the issue.  They premiered the same week last year and as a brand new show at that.  The issue is that they debuted with three episodes and only had ten.  They are premiering with only two this time and have thirteen altogether.  So either random weeks are going to double-up on episodes or they are going to be releasing into July, past nominations being announced, let alone voted on.

    Hulu sometimes releases two or three episodes at once, so that’s a possibility.

    And what the hell is wrong with them planning on doing ten seasons?

    Few shows should last that long.

    Season 1 essentially exhausts Atwood’s novel, so ten seasons seem both ambitious and foolhardy to me.

    Bradley Whitford will also guest-star in season 2!

    With all these big names being cast in the second season, I’m thinking they might have a sophomore slump. And it would make sense since the book is already used.

    Damn, I really hope not but I am beginning to suspect that this may be case – especially given the diminishing returns many (including myself) seemed to perceive as the first season went on.

    Still, I am excited to see what they come up with. I would love for this to blossom creatively once untethered from the source material.

    Casting a ton of big name guest stars is almost always a sign of a sophomore slump. Hopefully they don’t let their success get in their way.

    Even if they suffer a slump, I still don’t really think that will affect their nomination total (wins, maybe). Emmys usually take at least a season to recognize a slump when it comes to their favorites.

    Honestly, I want the second season to be good just because I don’t want to see Game of Thrones winning. The Americans after finally getting nominated, had a somewhat weaker season and got snubbed. It seems very easy to snub new shows if the quality declines, but not with their favorite shows nominated over and over.

    I’m not saying The Handmaid’s Tale will be snubbed, but with a weaker season, it just makes an easier path to victory for Game of Thrones, which ironically was weaker this season.

    I still could see Stranger Things potentially winning… but I agree that it’s down to those three.
