Apple holding virtual ‘advance screening’ of ‘Dickinson,’ season two

The second season of “Dickson” will premiere on Apple TV+this Friday, January 8. Apple is holding a virtual “advance screening” of the new season on Thursday, January 7, at 5 p.m. (Pacific).

If you’re interested in joining, you can apply for tickets on Apple’s website. “Dickinson” — which has already been renewed for a third season — is created, written and executive produced by Alena Smith, and Starrs Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld, who executive produces.

In the second season, Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld) is pulled out of her private literary life and thrust into the public eye, while struggling with the sense that the pursuit of fame might be a dangerous game for her to play.

Season two of “Dickinson” will reunite Steinfeld with returning ensemble cast members Jane Krakowski, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Toby Huss and Adrian Blake Enscoe, as well as rapper, singer and songwriter Wiz Khalifa, who will return as the character of Death. 

The second season will also introduce brand new guest stars, including Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe, Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmsted, Ayo Edebiri as Hattie, and Will Pullen as Nobody. As previously announced, recurring guest stars for season two include Finn Jones as Sam Bowles, and Pico Alexander as Ship.

The series earned a Peabody Award and GLAAD Media Award nomination following its first season.
