Peabody Poet Returns

Dickinson, a dramatic comedy about the famous English poet, returns with the first three episodes of a second 10-episode season today, January 8, on Apple TV+. Subsequent episodes will also bow on Fridays.

The show, set in the 19th century, explores issues of society, gender and family from the rebellious young Emily Dickinson’s (Hailee Steinfeld) perspective. In season two, Dickinson must deal with new-found fame.

The season will also feature guest stars Nick Kroll (Edgar Allan Poe), Timothy Simons (Frederick Law Olmsted), Ayo Edebiri (Hattie), Will Pullen (Nobody), Finn Jones (Sam Bowles) and Pico Alexander (Ship).

Dickinson, which won a Peabody Award, has already been renewed for a third season.
