AppleTV+ must like what it’s seeing from the first season of Dickinson, its upcoming dramedy about a young Emily Dickinson. According to THR, the subscription streaming service has already renewed the series for a second season, which has already begun production.

Yesss. This presumably means we won’t have to wait too long between seasons one and two. (Yes, I am basically already a fan of the show based on the gorgeous, irreverent trailers that have been released… and also my undying love for Emily Dickinson.)

Dickinson stars Hailee Steinfeld as the eponymous character. Set in the 1800s, it tells the story of the young poet with a “modern sensibility” The series will explore social and gender constraints of the time told by a writer who doesn’t fit in it. The series is written by executive producer Alena Smith, who wrote for Showtime’s The Affair, and HBO’s The Newsroom. It is directed by executive producer David Gordon Green, of Pineapple Express and Vice Principals.

In addition to Steinfeld, Dickinson stars Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt and Adrian Blake Enscoe, and I cannot wait for it to premiere. We will update you with news on Dickinson Season 2 as it comes. In the meantime, lean into the Dickinson Season 1 hype.
