Apple TV+ has debuted the official trailer for the upcoming third and final season of the historical dramedy series Dickinson, which is scheduled to make its return on Friday, November 5, with three new episodes. Following its premiere, it will then be followed by one new episode weekly every Friday through December 24.
The Dickinson final season trailer, which you can check out below, features Hailee Steinfeld’s Emily as she and her family deal with the heavy feelings that come with the chaos and sadness of the ongoing civil war. The video highlights her hopes to make a difference through her poetry.
Set during Emily Dickinson’s era with a modern sensibility and tone, the series is Emily’s coming-of-age story — one woman’s fight to get her voice heard. 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 into her own time through her imaginative point of view.
“In the third season, Emily Dickinson’s most productive time as an artist falls amid the raging American Civil War and an equally fierce battle that divides her own family,” reads the synopsis. “As Emily tries to heal the divides around her, she wonders if art can help keep hope alive, and whether the future can be better than the past.”
Dickinson stars Hailee Steinfeld, Ella Hunt, Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Adrian Enscoe, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, John Mulaney, and Wiz Khalifa. Season 3 will feature new guest-stars including Ziwe as Sojourner Truth, who also joined as a writer, Billy Eichner as Walt Whitman, and Chloe Fineman as Sylvia Plath; as well as returning favorites Zosia Mamet as Louisa May Alcott, and Will Pullen as Nobody.
Dickinson is created, written, and executive produced by Alena Smith, who also serves as the showrunner. Executive producers are Steinfeld, Michael Sugar, Ashley Zalta, Paul Lee, Josh Stern, Diana Schmidt, and Alex Goldstone along with writer Robbie MacDonald and director Silas Howard. The series is a production by Sugar23, Anonymous Content, and wiip.
