Apple TV+ isn’t wasting any time with M. Night Shyamalan’s psychological thriller series Servant and it already renewed it for a second season. While the first season of the show is set to air on November 28th, the streaming service has already give a go-ahead for a second season.
The news came from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan himself while coming on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Servant will tell the story of a Philadelphia couple, played by Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell, in grief after a tragedy forms a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a spiritual force, in the form of a nanny, to come into their home. The horrible tragedy is the death of their 13-week-old baby, and to help them cope with what happened, they are given a Reborn Doll, which is meant to help mourning parents cope with an unexpected loss like this.
At a press junket while promoting the show, Shyamalan talked to TV Guide about Season 2 saying, “We’re writing away on the second season. Some really crazy stuff is happening. … We all talk about, what’s the movement of the story? … What will we learn by the end of the second episode? What is its final moment? In my mind, we talk a lot about, what’s the final moment of this series and how are we aiming to that?”
The new show looks amazing and I can’t wait to see it.
Servant was created and written by Tony Basgallop, and it has a fabulous cast includes Nell Tiger Free and Rupert Grint.
