Apple TV+ Launching ‘Dickinson’ Season Two Jan. 8, 2021

Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) returns Jan. 8, 2021, for the season two premiere of the original Apple TV+ series “Dickinson.” The SVOD service, which launched in 2019, also greenlighted a third season of the historical comedy-drama about author Emily Dickinson.

The show explores the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of the budding writer, who doesn’t jive with her own her imaginative point of view. The series earned a Peabody Award and GLAAD Media Award nomination following its first season.
