After the cliffhanger finale of Servant’s season one, we all are waiting for the second installment. However, M. Night Shyamalan, the executive producer and contributing director of the mystery thriller, gave us a surprise. Apple TV+ has already announced the renewal of season three.
The second installment of Servant is set to land on 15th January, but now we know that we will have a third season of the psychological thriller series. It has been reported that following the events of season one, season two is going to take a supernatural twist, and things will get darker for everyone as Leanne returns to the brownstone.
I feel so lucky to announce @AppleTV is renewing #Servant for a season 3 before S2 even airs! Apple has been such a good partner & has always supported this show. I've dreamed of telling this story in 40 parts. I know that's not guaranteed by any means so this is wonderful news.— M. Night Shyamalan (@MNightShyamalan) December 15, 2020
The second season will have ten episodes. Lauren Ambrose, Nell Tiger Free, Toby Kebbell, and Rupert Grint will reprise their roles. Tony Basgallop is Servant’s producer, and it is executively produced by Ashwin Rajan, Steve Tisch, Todd Black, Taylor Latham, and Patrick Markey.
Season 2 has joined the recently renewed Apple Originals, including “Dickinson,” which is set to release on 8th January 2021. We will also have the second season of the critically acclaimed series, “For All Mankind” on 19th February 2021. Servant season 2 is also expected to be a massive hit, just like the global hit series “Ted Lasso.”
Basgallop told us that the inspiration for Servant came from being a parent. He stated that having kids mean having a fear of doing something wrong and the fear of being in a position of responsibility even before you are ready for it.
Even though season 3 has been given the green light, we don’t know anything more than that about it. Viewers are still waiting for the second installment, and we have a trailer.
The official trailer of the second installment raises the most critical and very dangerous question. What is the deal with Leanne Grayson? We can see how the trio reacts to the disappearance of the infant and some clues about Leanne’s truth.
The tweet of M. Night Shyamalan described how long he has been planning and finding the right people to tell this story. He praised the three international filmmakers for directing most of the second season.
I spent the last 3 years looking for amazing international storytellers. So lucky to have 3 gifted international filmmakers directing most of the 2nd season of @Servant with me. Julia Ducournau, @lisa_bruhlmann, & @isabellaeklof . Their films Raw, Blue my Mind, & Holiday are 🔥— M. Night Shyamalan (@MNightShyamalan) January 30, 2020
