Dickinson, the Hailee Steinfeld-fronted half-hour comedy, has been picked up for a third season by Apple.
This comes ahead of the launch of its second season, which the streamer has set for Friday, January 8. Joining as guest stars for the second season are Nick Kroll, Timothy Simons, Ayo Edebiri and Will Pullen. Watch a first look at Season 2 above.
The early renewal comes a few months after the show’s creator, showrunner and exec producer Alena Smith struck an overall deal with the streamer.
Dickinson is one of Apple TV+’s best-received series, and the renewal means it is the first original series to make it to a third season for the third platform. The show comes from wiip, Anonymous Content and Sugar23.
Dickinson explores the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld). Set in the 19th century, the series is a coming-of-age story that finds Emily to be the unexpected hero for the millennial generation.
