We have good and bad news for fans of Dickinson, the Apple TV+ series imagining the poet Emily Dickinson's coming-of-age story. The good news: The beloved comedy is coming back for a third season this fall. The bad news? This will be its final season.

Since it first premiered in November 2019, with Hailee Steinfeld playing the titular writer, Dickinson has charmed online audiences and even earned Peabody and GLAAD Media awards. With its final chapter imminent, fans are likely eager to find out what's in store for the onscreen poet's last chapter.

“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,” show creator, writer, and executive producer Alena Smith said in a statement. “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. 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.”

Here's what to know about Dickinson's sure to be epic conclusion.

When will it be released?

The first three episodes of Dickinson season 3 will premiere on Friday, November 5, 2021 on Apple TV+. The following episodes will be released weekly, and the series finale will arrive on December 24, 2021.

The series was originally renewed for a third installment in October 2020, just months before season 2 premiered. Smith had previously told Town & Country that enduring the pandemic in 2020 affected the writing for the final episodes. “We were writing season three over the summer and fall in the pandemic, and I would say that that experience certainly came to bear on the writing of season three,” she told the outlet.

What is it about?

Emily is set to face troubles in the Civil War and within her own home. According to Apple: “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. 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.”

The streamer also shared a first look with a photo of the upcoming season.
