In celebration of American literary icon Emily Dickinson’s birthday on 10 December and Hailee Steinfeld’s birthday on 11 December, Apple TV+ released the official trailer for the second season of “Dickinson,” Apple’s critically acclaimed, Peabody Award-winning original comedy.
The first three episodes of the spirited and unexpected ten-episode season about the life of a young American poet ahead of her time, will premiere globally on Friday, 8 January exclusively on Apple TV+, with a new episode premiering weekly, every Friday thereafter.
Created, written and executive produced by Alena Smith and starring Academy Award and Golden Globe Award-nominee Hailee Steinfeld, who executive produces, “Dickinson” season two follows Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld) as she is pulled out of her private literary life and thrust into the public eye, while struggling with the sense that the pursuit of fame might be a dangerous game for her to play.
