The streaming thriller will return for Season 2.
November 22, 2019
Apple TV+ announced this evening that Servant has been given an early pickup for a second season. The good news comes less than a week ahead of the thriller's premiere on the tech giant's new streaming service.
From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, the series follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after a horrible tragedy creates a rift in their marriage. When they try to get over their loss with a lifelike reborn doll, it opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home.
Today's renewal continues Apple's trend of giving all their new shows a second season. For All Mankind, The Morning Show, Dickinson, and See will all be returning as well.
Servant is Shyamalan's second foray into television and his first on a streaming platform. He previously executive produced Fox's Wayward Pines, which ran for two seasons.

This show is like watching a train wreck.. starts interesting then each episode just gets worse and worse. Typical M Knight writing.. builds suspense for the first 5-6 episodes then the timeline starts randomly jumping around making episodes hard to follow. Add to that it's a weekly episodic show and it's even worse. They've blown up any thread of suspense. MOST of each episode now is spent realizing "oh, this is a flashback, Wait.. is this now not a flashback?? What the hell is going on??" They've simply written this thing into the toilet. Poor overall direction.I was into it for the first few episodes.. now.. it's just something I'm more curious about than interested in. Feels like it should have had an ending 4 or 5 episodes ago and it's merely being padded out. This last episode was a complete waste of time merely to get one piece of dialog "What happened wasn't her fault. It was an accident." -- So they built a wasted episode to deliver two sentences.

Cal, I agree with you completely - loved Split
Corbus - many great films involve a lot of build up, plot and characterisation - they don't all have to be constant action.

@Cal... er... no. It wasn't. 1:15 of talking.. then 15 minutes of stuff actually happening. More than 80% of the movie is about the therapist and how she's trying to help.. which.. coincidentally is the same 80% at the start of Glass - psychotherapy. That does nto make for a "good" movie in my opinion.

Loving this show.... cannot work out if it is supernatural or not but I guess that will be the twist?! It's slow but highly engaging so happy it's been renewed.

@Corbus Split was a great movie.

Risky. M Night hasn't written anything worthwhile sine Unbreakable... seriously all his work since then has been pretty bad.
