Below is everything we know about the show’s second season, casting news on when you can binge.
When will it be released?
Apple TV + today announced that Dickinson returns on Friday, January 8, 2021, with three new episodes. The remainder of the season will air weekly on Friday.
What will season 2 of Dickinson to focus on?
After a first season that re-imagined Dickinson’s artistic rise, creator Alena Smith has revealed that season 2 will explore the writer’s stance on fame. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter she explained how the series would dissect why much of the late poet’s work was written in secret and was not published until after his death. “Season 1 gives an answer, which is that it was a patriarchy and her father was against the publication of women. Season 2 is going to turn the tide completely or backwards and give a very different answer, namely that Emily herself had a deeply ambivalent relationship with fame, “Smith explained.” Season 2 is really all about fame and the attention economy, which was a central concern in the poems of ‘Emily Dickinson. She wrote countless poems about fame and running from fame or rejecting fame. But she was definitely obsessed with fame even though she subverted it. “
The showrunner too tweeted a tease of things to come, writing, “Dickinson is really as much a dramatic adaptation of his poetry as a historical representation of his biography. This will become even clearer in Season 2. “
The official Apple TV + plot description for season 2 reads: “Emily Dickinson is taken out of her private literary life and thrown into the public eye, while battling the feeling that the pursuit of fame might be a dangerous game for her. The first teaser for the new season illustrates this, with Emily and her sister Lavinia (Anna Baryshnikov) leading a shoot with their friends in which Emily asks, ‘Oh great minds, should I seek fame?’ unlit candles suggest the answer is no. New character Hattie, played by Ayo Edebiri, adds, “I want to do scary shit and get paid.” Returning characters Abby (Sophie Zucker), Jane (Gus Birney) and Toshiaki (Kevin Yee) also make appearances.
Who is part of the cast?
ELLE.com has learned that two new faces will join Emily, Austin (Adrian Enscoe), Sue (Ella Hunt) and Lavinia in Season 2. Finn Jones (Game of Thrones, Iron Fist) will play Samuel Bowles, “an energetic and magnetic newspaper editor”. Meanwhile, Pico Alexander (Catch-22, back home) will play Henry “Ship” Shipley, an Amherst College dropout who rents a room at Dickinson’s.
Other new characters include Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe, Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmsted, and Will Pullen as Nobody.
Adrian Blake Enscoe (Austin Dickinson), Jane Krakowski (Emily Norcross Dickinson), Toby Huss (Edward Dickinson) and Wiz Khalifa (Death) will all reprise their roles in season 2.
Will there be a third installment?
Yes! Dickinson became the first Apple TV + production to receive a Season 3 renewal.
In November 2019, Smith said THR this season 2 does not take the series into civil war, a period it hopes to explore. “We’re getting closer to the civil war [in season two]. We are coming to the brink, “she said.” The season kind of goes up to the Harpers Ferry event, John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, which we see on our show as sort of a 9/11 moment or point where war becomes inevitable and society which has maintained itself until now knows that it will no longer work. If and when we have a season 3, it would be when we were in a civil war. “
