Second season

Is confirmed the second season of the series, although it is unknown when it will premiere. At the moment there are not even tracks of the shooting, although all indications are that the second batch of episodes could get to the end of 2020. That way coincide with the first anniversary of its release and also with the other series of the catalog of Apple TV+.


The series stands out primarily by the cultural shock experienced by the character of Emily with the society. In the mid-NINETEENTH century, the period in which lived the poet in which is based the series, there was another type of mentality about women, and despite the fact that the environment and context are very well developed and gives samples of be really that time, what is true is that the mentality of the protagonist could be of any woman alive today. Some issues like the drugs, so in evidence in our times, not beyond the frames of this series.
