Apple TV’s popular half-hour Hailee Steinfeld fronted comedy Dickinson recently announce that not only would it be returning for a second season on January 8, 2021, but that it has already been picked up for a third season. This is exciting news, as Dickinson is the first show to make it to a third season on Apple’s streaming platform, which might be tied to the fact that showrunner and executive producer Alena Smith recently struck an overall deal with the streamer. As expected, aside from the official renewal notice not much is known about the third season, however it has been confirmed that season 2 is set to initially air three episodes on January 8 followed by weekly episodes for the remainder of the season.

Dickinson tells the story of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld) as she faces the constraints of society, gender, and family in her 19th century world. The series is primarily a coming-of-age story, and the second season is set to focus on Dickinson’s struggles as she battles the fame thrust upon her as she moves out of her private literary world and into the public eye. Season 1 favorites including Jane Krakowski, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Toby Huss, Adrian Blake Enscoe, rapper Wiz Khalifa, Finn Jones, and Pico Alexander are all set to return for season 2 along with new guest stars including Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe, Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmstead, Ayo Edebiri as Hattie, and Will Pullen as Nobody.
All these stars promise to make the second season every bit as wonderful as the first, so make sure to tune in for the first episodes of Dickinson season 2 on January 8 on Apple TV and keep an eye out here for updates in the meantime.
