Thrillers are making a huge comeback in the drama-infested waters of premium television, and Severance offers a completely fresh perspective of work-life in the future.

Severance Season 1 Plot: What can we expect?
Details regarding the plot are anything but abundant, but there is still enough information to put together what the plot will likely be. Severance follows the lives of employees who work at a company called Lumon industries, where a “Severance” program separates the work-life of an employee from their personal life through surgical means.
Things take an interesting turn when a colleague mysteriously appears outside of work, and the office workers have to face the truth regarding what they really do at their jobs. This premise is just a taste of what is to come for Apple+ tv users, and the journey to discover the truth about half of their lives will drive the office workers forward. The sheer possibilities of what the truth could actually be will likely overwhelm any thriller junkies- which is a big positive considering that thrillers were designed for adrenaline junkies like yours truly.
Severance Season 1 Cast: Who will be in?
Adam Scott leads the stellar cast in the role of Mark while Britt Lower, John Turturro, Christopher Walken (The Outlaws), Patricia Arquette, Jen Tullock (Perry Mason), Zach Cherry (Most Dangerous Game), Tramel Tillman and Yul Vasquez complete the remainder of the small-sized cast.
Severance Season 1 Trailer: When will it be out?
The trailer for Severance is almost 3 minutes long on IMDb, and it does not fail in its quest to deliver a plateful of suspense. “Thank you. May I have a handshake?”. This is one of the popular lines in the series trailer, and it is important evidence that Severance is not your average suits, guns and car-chase thriller. Based on the mouth-watering trailer, the series will feature some absolute crackers, but this does not come at the cost of a great story and acting.
The trailer reveals that the workers receive Severance program of their own free will. Once someone leaves the company’s employ, their non-disclosure agreement prevents contacting former colleagues. When one of the former workers at the company contacts Mark- who is a current employee, he is forced to ask serious questions regarding the nature of their work and hence their life.
