Apple TV+ 'Dickinson' season two airs on January 8, 2021, renewed for a third

On Thursday, Apple announced that season two of "Dickinson" will air on January 8, 2021 on Apple TV+, and the show has also been renewed for a third season.


"Dickinson" will premiere on January 8, 2021


The comedy series was a standout hit when its first season debuted with Apple TV+ in 2019. It was renewed for a second season even before it aired, and went on to win a Peabody Award in the entertainment category.

Season two will pick up with Emily Dickinson, played by Hailee Steinfeld, being pulled out of her private literary life and thrust into the public eye. The teaser trailer for the new season has the character asking "should I seek fame?"





The ensemble cast returns with some new surprises like Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe and Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmsted.

The live-action shows that debuted with Apple TV+ have seen some delays in recording the second seasons due to coronavirus. "Dickinson" would have likely premiered on November 1, one year after its first season, but instead will air on January 8, 2020.

Apple saw some early success with Apple TV+, but it was given away for free with new product purchases and carrier incentives. For many users, this will be the first time they've had to pay for Apple TV+, so time will tell if Apple has made its exclusive content worth the $4.99 per month subscription. A subscription bundle called Apple One may help convince some more reluctant users to sign up.

    Really, my goodness I thought it was a load of shit and couldn’t get past the first 10 mins.

    My expectations just from the write up was way off, I had assumed, based on the clothing and name that it would be a period drama. Instead it was some weird reimagining of a period drama with a rubbish mash up of new and old.

    Well, I guess a sufficient amount of people disagreed with me seeing as it’s renewed.

    Yeah I hate that too. I was hoping for a docu drama with facts. Turns out some teens and 20-somethings like this.

    Well it was a good gag for a few episodes but the true secret of creating a legendary tv show is to know when to stop. This Idea ( a conceit, if you like) was really worth only one series, it won’t be engaging beyond that.

    There is a reason for the phrase “jumped the shark”.

    Like all of you, we were expecting a period drama/documentary also, and were let down the 1st episode.

    But we stuck with it and actually we really enjoyed it (we're, let's say 50-somethings plus our 16 yo daughter).  

    Sure, not what you expect, but it is very entertaining if you can accept an old period with a modern twist model.

    Looking forward to Season 2.
