Apple has released our first proper look at Dickinson, the Hailee Steinfeld-led TV series based on poet Emily Dickinson’s life. The new comedy series will be set in the 1800s, but will be told 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.
Dickinson has already begun production on Season 2, but you can read more about the first season below…
