Dickinson is one of the first shows to premiere on Apple TV+.

The show gives a hilarious and modern take of the life of famous poet Emily Dickinson’s, set in her time.

Imagine an 1800 character but using modern slang like "cool" ” “what’s up,”   “hell yeah,” “such bullsh*t,” and “yo.”

The show was so good that the announcement of its renewal came even before season 1 premiered.


Here's everything you need to know about Dickinson Season 2.


When Will Dickinson Season 2 Release?

There is still no specific release date yet but we're expecting to see Dickinson Season 2 premiere later this year.

Good thing the show was renewed long before season one even premiered. The production team was able to film most scenes before the Coronavirus pandemic shut down all film and television productions worldwide.

Season one released on November 1, 2019, and production for season 2 reportedly began the next month.

We'll keep you updated once Apple TV releases the specific release date for Dickinson Season 2.


Who Will Be In The Cast Of Dickinson Season 2?

Fans can expect to see new faces for the new season. Finn Jones and Pico Alexander are officially joining the cast members alongside main star Hailee Steinfeld who plays Emily Dickinson in the series.

Jones will play an energetic and magnetic newspaper editor, Samuel Bowles. While Alexander will play as a boarder with the Dickinsons and dropout of Amherst College, Henry “Ship” Shipley.

The rest of the major casts are expected to reprise their roles. They are Toby Huss as Edward Dickinson, Jane Krakowski as Emily Norcross Dickinson, Adrian Enscoe as Austin Dickinson, Anna Baryshnikov as Lavinia "Vinnie" Dickinson, and Ella Hunt as Sue Gilbert.


The Plot: What Will Dickinson Season 2 Be All About?

Season one introduced us to Emily and her life in the restrictive era. We witnessed Emily and her love affair with her best friend Sue. Death has always been a part of Emily's poems, and the show made sure to make a representation of death in the series-- not through a Grim Reaper dressed in black but a fashionable Wiz Khalifa in an epic carriage pulled by white ghostly horses.

The second season is expected to focus on a different aspect of Emily's life which is fame. Showrunner Alena Smith revealed via Hollywood Reporter that the second season will explore why Emily did not publish her works before she dies and what led her to write those now highly celebrated poems.


Smith said: "Season two is going to completely turn that on its head or inside out and give a very different answer, which is that Emily herself had a deeply ambivalent relationship to fame."

Smith further explains that the next season 'is really all about fame and the attention economy, which was a central concern in Emily Dickinson's poems.'

Emily wrote a lot of poems about fame and about running away from it. However, Smith believes that Emily 'definitely had an obsession about fame even if she was subverting it'.
