servant seasons 3 and 4

Servant, the spooky slow-burn Apple TV+ series from M. Night Shyamalan, has already been renewed for a second season. But has it been renewed beyond that? It sure sounds like it, at least according to Shyamalan. According to the filmmaker, a writer’s room for Servant season 3 and season 4 has already been assembled. And while this may not mean Apple TV+ has officially given an order for those seasons, it confirms that Shyamalan and company are planning ahead.

Unbreakable Split Glass Vinyl

When Split arrived in 2016, audiences were blown away by one of M.Night Shyamalan‘s biggest surprise endings yet. The thriller starring James McCavoy as a kidnapper with dissociative identity disorder was revealed to exist within the same universe as Unbreakable, the gritty superhero drama starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. Both of the movies came to a head last year in the questionable Glass, concluding what is known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. And now you can get the soundtracks to all three films on vinyl.

One of the most high-profile filmmakers associated with the streaming service Apple TV+ since its launch last November has been M. Night Shyamalan. Promotional images for Servant, which released its tense season finale on Friday, prominently featured the words, “From M. Night Shyamalan” over the title. Shyamalan directed the show’s pilot and serves as one of its executive producers, much like he did with Fox’s Wayward Pines.

The plot of Servant revolves around a suspicious nanny who enters the life of a Philadelphia couple. Here, as with Wayward Pines, Shyamalan has taken a step back from writing duties. Showrunner Tony Basgallop wrote all ten episodes of Servant’s first season. Yet there are aspects of the show that feel very much of a piece with Shyamalan’s overall body of work as a writer-director. It’s another atmospheric dip into psychological horror where the choice of setting, the familiar preoccupation with belief and delusion, a newer tendency toward exploitation tactics, and less salubrious aspects like accusations of plagiarism (Servant is now the subject of a lawsuit) all draw a line to previous moments in his career.

m. night shyamalan next movies

M. Night Shyamalan was on the verge of an exciting new comeback after the 2015 sleeper hit The Visit and the well-received surprise Unbreakable sequel Split. But then came this year’s Glass, the highly anticipated third film in Shyamalan’s Unbreakable trilogy that was met with scorching reviews from critics. But while Shyamalan’s creative comeback is in a potentially fragile state, the director is already planning his next three films. And they’re going to be “weird and dark.”

servant review

“What happened?” is a frequently asked question in Servant, the latest addition to nascent streaming service Apple TV+. Mystery is the name of the game here, with the series – and its characters – playing things maddeningly close to the vest. That the show boasts the input of M. Night Shyamalan we’re conditioned to believe all this mystery and secrecy is building towards a big whopper of a twist.

And indeed, there are plenty of twists and turns in nearly every episode. But more often than not, Servant‘s obtuse nature is frustrating, and you can’t help get the feeling that the show is only being vague for the sake of being vague. This isn’t some trip into an impenetrable David Lynch landscape. It’s just a sturdy, spooky show trying to disguise the fact that it has nothing much to say.

servant new york comic-con 2019

A fine mist had settled on the damp streets of New York City on the first night of 2019’s New York Comic-Con. It’s the kind of gloomy, rainy night that evokes the eerie mood of many a M. Night Shyamalan movie. It’s a fitting night to tease the Glass director’s newest project and his latest foray into television: Apple TV+’s Servant. A psychological thriller series created and written by Tony Basgallop and executive produced by Basgallop and Shyamalan, Servant follows a Philadelphia couple (Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell) in mourning after an “unspeakable tragedy” causes a rift in their marriage and leads them to open their home to a mysterious nanny (Nell Tiger Free).

Shyamalan took the stage at the Servant New York Comic-Con 2019 panel Thursday, alongside Basgallop and the series stars Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), Free (Game of Thrones), and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter), to introduce the series to the world and debut a first official trailer that, fittingly, opens on a rainy night.
