Shared by The Washington Post on Instagram, one of the jaw-dropping photos shows filming underway for the new season, "filmed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Friday."
Evy Mages, a photographer for Washingtonian, also captured the eerie images of 200 handmaidens in the National Mall.
Others took to Twitter to share the haunting scenes. The red and white costume has become synonymous with political protest in the US and many thought it was another demonstration, before noting that the show's stars were present.
