Dickinson (TV series)

Dickinson is an American historical comedy-drama streaming television series about Emily Dickinson … produced for Apple TV+.

Starring Hailee Steinfeld as Dickinson, the first season was released on November 1, 2019, when Apple TV+ debuted.

Two more seasons are in the works.

Dickinson takes place “during Emily Dickinson‘s era with a modern sensibility and tone.

It takes viewers into the world of Emily, audaciously exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time …

It’s weird and somehow compelling. Modern dialogue. Modern music.

All the characters are great. My favourite is Darlene Hunt as Maggie, their hilarious maid.

74% on Rotten Tomatoes.

I hadn’t known that Emily Dickinson’s legendary poetry was not acclaimed until after her death in 1886. Her sister discovered the cache of  1,800 poems and finally had them published.
