                            'Dickinson': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the Apple TV+ show

If you swear by Emily Dickinson's words, "Forever is composed of nows" and "Tell the truth, but tell it slant" then here's some good news for you. A half-hour comedy series starring Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld titled 'Dickson' will soon make its way to your TV screens. 'Dickinson' touches upon the anachronistic topics of societal pressures, gender equality and family issues from the eyes of the rebellious young poet. 

While the author is known for her shy and recluse nature, the show portrays her in a new light, bringing her defiant side. Created by Alena Smith, the series is another major attraction for Apple TV+  which has been expanding its library of exclusive and original content before it launches on November 1.
