Finn Jones joins Dickinson Season 2
14th December 2019
Finn Jones has joined the cast of Dickinson for Season 2.
Created by Alena Smith, Dickinson audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson. Starring Hailee Steinfeld as Dickinson, the coming-of-age story promises wild nights and dark comedy as it brings a fresh look to literary history.
Steinfeld is joined by Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Dickinson, Emily’s mother, Toby Huss as Edward, her father, Anna Baryshnikov (Manchester by the Sea) as Lavinia, her sister, Adrian Blake Enscoe (Seeds, We Don’t Belong Here) as Austin, her brother, and Ella Hunt (Anna and the Apocalypse, Cold Feet) as Sue Gilbert, her best friend.
“This well-acted modern take on the life of Emily Dickinson is an enjoyably unconventional watch,” we wrote in our review.
Now, with Season 2 already commissioned and in production, that ensemble is being joined by Jones. Fresh from the cancelled Netflix series Iron Fist – and before tha Game of Thrones, Jones will play Samuel Bowles, an energetic and magnetic newspaper editor. Another new addition to the cast is Catch-22 star Pico Alexander, who will play Henry Shipley, a dropout from Amherst College and a boarder with the Dickinsons.
