The streaming thriller scores another early pickup.
December 15, 2020
Apple TV+ today handed out an early renewal for a third season of Servant. The good news, which comes one month ahead of the thriller's sophomore premiere, was announced by Executive Producer M. Night Shyamalan on his Twitter feed.
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 pickup makes Servant the fourth Apple original to earn a third season. For All Mankind, Dickinson, and Ted Lasso 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.
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
