Mark your calendars: Dickinson, the anachronistic AppleTV+ comedy-drama about the life of the poet Emily Dickinson, will return to our screens in January.

Despite the fact that the AppleTV+ streaming platform has been around for over a year now, many viewers remain unaware of its array of original series. The Morning Show snagged a bunch of Emmy nominations, but it’s comedy-drama Dickinson that built a small, but dedicated fanbase that helped push the series into the mainstream television conversation. (Albeit briefly.)

Now that the series is about to return for its second season, here’s hoping that the buzzy little anachronistic series that could gets the attention it so richly deserves. Based (sort of) on the life of famous American poet Emily Dickinson, the show mixes modern-day elements like hip-hop and Wiz Khalifa as the literal personification of Death into its period setting to create something entirely new.

Though history tends to remember Emily Dickinson as a sad, housebound recluse who only published a handful of poems within her lifetime, this a show that kicks those ideas to the curb.

But when can we see season 2 for ourselves? Sooner than you think.

Season 2 will officially premiere on Friday, January 8 on Apple TV.

The first three installments of the ten-episode second season will drop together, with weekly releases to follow on Fridays through February.

(Here’s hoping that a non-binge release schedule means more eyeballs on this show!)

The series dropped a full trailer for season 2 last week, in honor of what would have been the 19th birthday of Emily Dickinson.

Season 1 concluded with Sue’s wedding to Emily’s brother Austin but the season 2 trailer hints that things might not be completely over between the two women just yet. Elsewhere, it appears as though Emily is wrestling with ideas of legacy and fame, questioning how she wants to be remembered when she’s gone.

The series has already been renewed for a third season, as part of creator Alena Smith’s recent deal with Apple.
