Below is a comprehensive list of TV series that are ending or won’t be back for the 2021-22 TV season, which just kicked off in September 2021. The list also includes TV show cancellations in 2018 and 2019.
Dickinson (Apple TV)
Apple TV announced in September 2021 that the comedy series Dickinson will wrap with its upcoming third season, which is set to premiere on November 5th, 2021. In a statement, series creator Alena Smith revealed that Dickinson had always been planned as a three-season show.
“When I set out to make Dickinson, I envisioned the show as a three-season journey that would tell the origin story of America’s greatest female poet in a whole new way, highlighting Emily [Dickinson]’s relevance and resonance to our society today,” she said. “In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined how rich and satisfying the experience of making this show would become, and the incredible joy it has been to tell Emily’s story along with Hailee [Steinfeld] and our brilliant, passionate cast and crew. I can’t wait to share our epic final season with the world, and to bring our audience along with us to the conclusion of Emily’s coming-of-age saga, as she continues to fight for her own poetic truth while reckoning with so many of the issues that face us now.”
