'Dickinson' fans binge 10 episodes in one sitting, demand Apple TV to renew the show for Season 2
The stolen moments between Sue and Emily bring tenderness to not only the show but also the fictionalized character of Emily who is often focused on her fight against patriarchy and other social injustices
Just four days into premiering their brand new original show 'Dickinson', Apple TV is getting hounded by fans on Twitter for a new season.
It seems pretty realistic to expect one anyway considering how much was invested in the show, and the casting of America's sweetheart Hailee Steinfeld as the titular Emily Dickinson, but fans have anyway decided to push for it.
The show definitely has a lot of scope for improvement, especially in making the distinction between over-the-top caricatures and employing humor to drive home a serious point.
In this regard, specifically, the show fails to meet audience expectations and ends up leaving them confused. The same could also be said regarding some of the castings, specifically that of Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Dickinson, who ends up looking like she is reprising her role as Jenna from '30 Rock'.
However, Steinfeld's portrayal of Emily more than made up for it. As the constantly misunderstood visionary, she manages to shine through. You cannot help but be charmed by her vulnerability and her tenacity, and more importantly her perseverance and love.
Her relationship with Sue (Ella Hunt) is one of the most beautiful depictions of forbidden love on screen.
The stolen moments between Sue and Emily bring tenderness to not only the show but also the fictionalized character of Emily who is often focused on her fight against patriarchy and other social injustices.
Their story seems to have resonated with the fans of the show, and it is for the continuation of their love story that fans want to see more of 'Dickinson'.
One fan tweeted, "Just binged #Dickinson it’s amazing!!!! Quick question... WHEN IS SEASON 2?!" Another one said, "Binged the entirety of #Dickinson and I absolutely loved it! I hope there is a season 2 bc I need more @HaileeSteinfeld @EllaHunt & co. and I need to know what's next for Emily & Sue!"
Yet another had this to say, "just finished dickinson... hello season 2 PLEASE", while another commenter said, "I see you @AppleTV and your wonderful content! Can you give #Dickinson a season 2?! K thanks byyyyeeeee! @HaileeSteinfeld"
We sure hope Apple TV is listening, because we would love to see Emily and Sue again come 2020, preferably the first half.
