Apple Shares Trailer for Upcoming Apple TV+ Show 'Dickinson'

Apple today shared the first official trailer for "Dickinson," another one of its upcoming television shows that stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jane Krakowski, and others.

The trailer provides the first look at what we can expect from the show, which is a comedy focused on the life of poet Emily Dickinson.


"Dickinson" was one of the first Apple TV projects that Apple signed up for, with Apple inking a deal for the series back in May 2018.

Hailee Steinfeld, known for her roles in "True Grit," "Pitch Perfect 2," "Pitch Perfect 3," "Ender's Game," and coming of age film "Edge of Seventeen," takes on the titular role of Emily Dickinson in the series, while Jane Krakowski plays her mother.

Emily Dickinson was a prolific American poet known for short lines, slant rhymes, and irregular use of punctuation. Much of her work focused on death and immortality, and she was known for living a reclusive life. The show is said to explore the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn't fit into her own time.

According to the trailer, "Dickinson" is set to launch this fall, which means it will be one of the initial shows available when the service becomes available.

Apple hasn't provided a specific release date for when we can expect to see the TV+ series launch, but it is said to be coming this fall, perhaps in November. Rumors have suggested Apple is aiming to price the service at $9.99 per month.

"Dickinson" is just one of dozens of shows and films Apple is working on for ‌Apple TV‌+. For a full list of everything that's known to be in development, check out our Apple TV+ content guide.

It would have been cheaper filming someone throwing $100 bills into a burning fireplace. Probably more interesting too.

Comments here never disappointed if you’re looking for the most negative crap coming from commenters. As The Morning Show, if the show is not for you, it doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s just not for you. To me this looks interesting and I’ll surely give it a chance. But hey, a nuanced, non-negative comment on MacRumors, it will disappear in the sea of negativity that is so common here.

This is as interesting as a microwave instruction manual.

For only $9.99 a month.

I was hopeful for Apple TV+, but so far it's looking like is going to be a huge flop.

While MacRumors has always had naysayers (remember the famous iPod thread?), in the past several years, it's devolved into a cesspool of negativity and trolling. I spent some time putting users whose only contribution is incessant negavity or tired one liners in my ignore list and it's helped make this forum more tolerable but it's far from the Apple fan community it started out as.

No thanks. That’s just awful. What happened to quality over quantity? Not looking like a great start for Apple. Hopefully they show something worthwhile one day.

That show would fit right in the CW's line up.

This is your friendly reminder that not all content has to please everyone. Just like there's tons of content on Netflix, I won't watch but there are shows that seem tailor made for my tastes, AppleTV+ will have a variety of content for all sorts of audiences.

A bunch of 30-40 something year old dudes commenting on a show made for 13 year old girls...

Appears to be content about women for women. I’m sure I’ll be fascinated how well this goes down with a web forum membership which put so much energy into waiting for Skylake and testing the CPU throttling on their phones.
