apple tv+ free

Apple TV+ launched in November 2019 to little fanfare, overshadowed by the glitzy rollout of Disney+. But in contrast to another new streaming platform, Apple TV+ has a fair few original titles that are worth a watch. Sadly, they’ve been overlooked by many viewers, many of whom aren’t even aware that Apple TV+ is fully operational (partly through the fault of Apple’s lackluster marketing). But now that everyone is stuck inside and looking for new shows and movies to stream, Apple is stepping up its outreach by offering its originals for free to non-subscribers, for a limited time.

dickinson trailer

Emily Dickinson is a woman ahead of her time, quite literally in the case of the upcoming Apple TV+ series starring Hailee Steinfeld as the legendary female poet. Dickinson is a coming-of-age comedy series set in the mid-1800s that is all about those anachronisms, Steinfeld and her co-stars happily sling around words like “dude,” and “gross.” But it certainly makes Dickinson stand out from the crowd of stuffy biographical dramas — that and seeing John Mulaney rock an old-timey beard as Henry David Thoreau. Watch the new Dickinson trailer below.

dickinson trailer

Apple TV+’s upcoming comedy series Dickinson doesn’t do subtlety. The first trailer, which previewed a period drama rife with anachronisms and punk-rock rebellion, hinted as much — bucking perceptions of the literary icon Emily Dickinson as some kind of buttoned-up lady. Instead, as portrayed by Oscar-nominated Hailee Steinfeld, she’s a modern rebel who spouts words like “dude” and grapples with the concept of Death, which happens to look a lot like Wiz Khalifa. Watch the official Dickinson trailer below.

dickinson cast john mulaney

John Mulaney will wax poetic as Henry David Thoreau in Dickinson, the new Apple TV+ series that asks: “What if Emily Dickinson was a wild party animal who got rowdy with all her hot friends?” Specific details about Mulaney’s part are non-existent at this point, but Thoreau, the author of Walden (among other things) was Dickinson’s 5th cousin once removed (I looked that up), so there’s that to consider.

Imaginations, and corseted ladies-to-be, literally run wild in the Dickinson trailer starring Hailee Steinfeld as a young Emily Dickinson. But this isn’t the buttoned-up literary icon that you would imagine her as. In Apple TV+’s upcoming coming-of-age series, Steinfeld is a punk rock version of Emily Dickinson who dances wildly and throws up anachronistic hand signs because this isn’t your grandma’s period costume drama. Watch the Dickinson trailer below.
