Following the premiere of Apple TV+ original series "Dickinson" at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn on Thursday, Apple revealed the show's entire first season will be available from day one when the streaming service debuts on Nov. 1.

Announced in a press release, Apple will stream all 10 episodes of "Dickinson" at launch. The release strategy promotes binging and is often used by segment stalwarts Netflix and Amazon to drum up interest in original series.

Apple is varying its approach to content availability, as another launch series, "For All Mankind," will see three episodes debut on Nov. 1.

Written and created by Alena Smith, Apple describes "Dickinson" as a coming-of-age story that "audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson." The show takes place in the 19th century, but features thoroughly modern storytelling elements, dialogue and music.

Hailee Steinfeld, who plays the titular character, is supported by a cast including Anna Baryshnikov, Adrian Blake Enscoe, Ella Hunt, Toby Huss and Jane Krakowski.

Earlier on Thursday, Apple posted to its YouTube channel a new commercial for "Dickinson" as it continues to promote Apple TV+ originals ahead of a service debut next month.

Along with notching a role as an inaugural Apple TV+ original, "Dickinson" is reportedly among the first of Apple's slate to rate renewal for a second season. Alongside an expected sophomore season for "The Morning Show" starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, Apple is believed to have put in continuation orders for space race drama "For All Mankind," immigrant anthology series "Little America" and detective drama "Home Before Dark."

Apple TV+ will feature about 10 shows when it goes live on Nov. 1. The service costs $4.99 per month, but customers who purchase eligible devices like iPhone and iPad get a one-year subscription for free as part of a limited promotional offer.

    I think it’s a mistake to air whole seasons at once. If the show is enjoyed by some and quickly then a full year until season 2. Even if they gave users 3 episodes and a new episode each week then.

    Has that hurt the original content for Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming services? I've taken advantage of these all at once drops to sign up for short-term trials of services to binge watch a season, which hurts their monthly dues, but it hasn't deterred me from staying up to date with shows like Stranger Things.

    Dickinson: 10 (30 mins) episodes all at once
    The Morning Show: Three episodes at once then the rest weekly
    For All Mankind: Three episodes at once then the rest weekly
    Not sure about the others

    Anyhow, Apple is making a big deal about this show. Maybe this is their "Orange is the New Black"?

    Possibly Apple experimenting to see what works best.

    Book readers are used to… and then the author writes a Conan book? And then gets Amyoidosis and dies before finishing the series?

    Streaming services have nothing on that!

    Good thing us grownups can manage our own expectations! We don’t often watch the entire series at once or continually, but do enjoy two episodes in a row when time permits. There’s so much content these days we don’t mind waiting a year between seasons. There’s more to life.

    I think she proved she was a terrific actress with the True Grit remake and I hope this show pays off big for Apple, but it really does not interest me personally. There are other upcoming Apple TV+ shows which do interest me.

    This is the show I am most looking forward to.
