Critic Reviews for Dickinson Season 2

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12)

A fantasia of storytelling modes, and they do add up to a lot more than a forced effort to be different or to make Dickinson cool for the kids. They add up to a touching portrait of a brilliant young woman.

It is imperfect and strange and easy to love. Sometimes the ride is bumpy, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth taking the trip.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Not everyone will agree with the show's characterization of the historical figure, but its characterization of a young woman who wants more than she's got and feels more than she knows what to do with? Spot on.

Feb 1, 2021 | Full Review…

Dickinson dances on the line between drama and comedy, biographical and supernatural, historical and modern. Some of the quieter, more poetic scenes tug at my heart and hold a mirror up to my soul and make me want to lie on the ground for a few hours.

Jan 14, 2021 | Full Review…

One of the joys of Dickinson is when something true from this playful and winking retelling of Emily Dickinson's young life leaps out of the story at us, announcing itself as an unlikely-but-fact-check-it-and-you'll-see revelation.

Jan 14, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Dickinson season two has more of everything: poetry, sex, longing, ambition, relevance, and spot-on performances. The world of Amherst also expands, and with it, the roster of memorable characters.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Dickinson Season 2 is one of the best seasons of TV of 2021. Not only does it match the magic of the first season, it expands on it!

Feb 8, 2021 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Dickinson remains in the upper echelon of the service's shows.

Jan 14, 2021 | Full Review…

Succinctly, it's nothing short of glorious.

Jan 14, 2021 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

More than anything, though, it is Dickinson's heart that elevates it above nearly every other show on TV.

Jan 14, 2021 | Full Review…

In season 2, Dickinson is content to merely be the show it is: which is, in fact, pretty great.

Jan 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Its enjoyment is in the sheer energy of its undertaking and sincere performances. What it also achieves is a combination of accessible, teenage style that somehow still brings across all the high emotional power of a 19th century novel.

    Original, creative, and wonderfully unique, Dickinson has turned into one of my favorite tv shows around.

    This show is entertaining and unique. Historical, yet contemporary in flashes. You might like it too.

    We loved the show, but could only find it on 123 movies and cannot find season 2 anywhere. We live in BC Canada. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Awesome as always! Alena Smith has built an amazing show with deep morals and philosophical conflicts, while still entertaining and making me have a good time. Season two comes strong and powerful, inspiring more, with better visuals and deeper character development. Yet another win for Apple TV+

    An amazingly fun & fresh take on the life of a great American poet. I love the mash up of modern music in the historical setting and how it doesn't scrub her life story of it's humanity, but instead reminds us all that life has forever been complicated in many of the same ways that it is today. It also inspires & renews interest in her incredible body of work.
  • Feb 02, 2021
    It's a refreshing way of learning about one of the best poet of her times, it's interesting, funny, historical. My favorite show ever.
  • Jan 30, 2021
    Hailee Steinfeld even more amazing in the second season!
  • Jan 29, 2021
    Haillee is the best!
  • Jan 19, 2021
    it's an art masterpiece!
  • Jan 16, 2021
    What it lacks in depth, it makes up for in feminist propaganda, and modern secular ideology.
