All good things must come to an end and that is something that we’ve grown to accept. Dickinson coming to an end makes sense, because of Hawkeye and the fact that Hailee Steinfeld is everywhere and we expect her to move on to bigger and better things.
Not that Dickinson wasn’t or isn’t good or a bigger and better thing.
But it was announced today that Season 3 will be its last. It will be 10 episodes, premiering, Friday, November 5 with three episodes.
“When I set out to make Dickinson, I envisioned the show as a three-season journey that would tell the origin story of America’s greatest female poet in a whole new way, highlighting Emily’s relevance and resonance to our society today. In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined how rich and satisfying the experience of making this show would become, and the incredible joy it has been to tell Emily’s story along with Hailee and our brilliant, passionate cast and crew,” said creator, writer, and executive producer Alena Smith. “I can’t wait to share our epic final season with the world, and to bring our audience along with us to the conclusion of Emily’s coming-of-age saga, as she continues to fight for her own poetic truth, while reckoning with so many of the issues that face us now. Thank you to Hailee Steinfeld and our entire Dickinson team for making this such an unforgettable creative journey. I’m grateful for my partnership with Apple and can’t wait to continue telling more original stories with them in the years ahead.”
In the show, “Emily Dickinson, played by Hailee Steinfeld, finds that her “most productive time as an artist falls amid the raging American Civil War and an equally fierce battle that divides her own family. 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, Toby Huss, Adrian Blake Enscoe, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Amanda Warren, Chinaza Uche, Jane Krakowski, and Wiz Khalifa.
