This AppleTV+ original was one of the very first for the network, and it has come to a close after 3 seasons. This series has seen across-the-board praise from fans and critics alike for its modernization of American poet Emily Dickinson, as well as its heartfelt storylines and smart comedy.
The relationship between Emily and Sue, dubbed Emisue, was not only historically accurate but also incredibly well written and acted. Particularly in the second-to-last episode of season 3, Emily and Sue finally bridged the gap between them and came together in a wonderfully shot love scene.
Along with the Emisue relationship, Dickinson‘s short three-season run also featured an exploration of Emily’s lesbian identity, Sue’s relationship with gender, and the intimate act of being unapologetically yourself too many years ahead of the necessary societal shifts. Queer TV will feel the loss of Dickinson without another season to look forward to next year.
