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. This makes Dickinson the first of Apple TV+’s flagship list to get an official season two release date.
The 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.
‘Dickinson’ Season 2 Coming to Apple TV+ on January 8, 2021
Dickinson is a historical drama that follows the life of Emily Dickinson, played by Hailee Steinfeld. It takes watchers into the world of Emily, a woman exploring the confinements of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a young writer who does not fit into society due to her imaginative point of view.
Season two will pick up with Emily Dickinson being dragged out of her private bookish life, and pushed into the public eye. The teaser trailer for the new season has the character asking “should I seek fame?”. The star-studded cast returns with some new additions like Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe and Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmsted.
Apple has renewed most of its original content television series for additional seasons. However, the Cupertino tech giant has faced production delays as the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to almost all of Hollywood’s ongoing productions.
Dickinson had fortunately completed filming on season two before the end of 2019. Dickinson would have likely premiered on November 1, one year after its first season, but instead will air on January 8, 2020.
Apple TV+ is the Cupertino tech giant’s video streaming service that offers a wide variety of original talk shows, drama series, kids shows, movies, and more. The video streaming service is available for $4.99 per month via the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and apple.com. It is also available on select TV sets of LG, Samsung, Amazon, and Roku. The streaming platform is also available in Apple’s subscription bundle called Apple One.
