After closing out 2020 in style with Cartoon Saloon’s Wolfwalkers and nature doc Earth at Night in Color, Apple TV+ is entering its second full calendar year with its sights set similarly high – with the return of two launch titles, Servant and Dickinson, its latest star-led film.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Apple TV+ in January 2021:
Dickinson: Season 2 – 8th January
Created and written by Alena Smith who executive produces with star Hailee Steinfeld, this half-hour comedy series explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson. Steinfeld plays Dickinson, alongside returning co-stars Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt and Adrian Blake Enscoe, plus Wiz Khalifa guest starring as Death. The second season will also introduce brand new guest stars, including Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe. The first three episodes land at once, followed by new episodes weekly.
Servant: Season 2 – 15th January
Written and created by Tony Basgallop and exec-produced and directed by M Night Shyamalan, this psychological thriller follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home. Lauren Ambrose stars as Dorothy, a mother who hires a young nanny to help care for their newborn child. Toby Kebbell co-stars as her husband, Sean, and Nell Tiger Free stars as Leanne, the nanny. Rupert Grint also stars as Dorothy’s younger brother, Julian. Season 2 immerses us back in a family divided by belief, by loss, by suspicion and by where they draw the line of how far is too far. Episodes arrive weekly.
Losing Alice – 22nd January
This psychological thriller follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success. An Israeli co-production, it uses flashbacks and flash-forwards to take the viewer through Alice’s conscious and subconscious.
Palmer – 29th January
After 12 years in prison, former high school football star Eddie Palmer (Timberlake) returns home to put his life back together—and forms an unlikely bond with Sam, an outcast boy from a troubled home. But Eddie’s past threatens to ruin his new life and family.
