You can read the details below:

The companies won a bidding war for the trilogy, which is comprised of the novels “Oryx and Crake,” “The Year of the Flood,” and “MaddAddam.” The books tell the story of a global pandemic and the end of mankind, and the small group of survivors who are left to shepherd a new race to inherit the world. The series centers on Jimmy, a young boy disillusioned with the all-powerful corporations who rule civilization, whose best friend will develop the drug that wipes out humanity; Toby and Ren, two members of the cult “God’s Gardeners” who fight to survive on the margins of society; and Zeb, one of the founders of “God’s Gardeners.”

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood premiered in Hulu last April 2017. 

The first book in the trilogy, Oryx and Crake, was published in 2013. It was distributed by Anchor Books.
