Apple has confirmed a second season pickup for M. Night Shyamalan’s Servant, ahead of psychological thriller’s season premiere next week. Shyalaman made the announcement on NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
This marks the latest new Apple series to get a Season 2 renewal before it has been released. It joins Ron Moore’s For All Mankind, the Jason Momoa starrer See; and the Emily Dickinson comedy Dickinson, starring Hailee Steinfeld, whose renewals have been confirmed by Apple, as well as upcoming anthology immigrant comedy Little America; and the Hilde Lysiak young detective drama Home Before Dark, which also are believed to have been quietly renewed. The Morning Show, one of the four Apple+ series that helped launch the streamer on Nov.1, along with For All Mankind, See and Dickinson, had a two-season order from the get-go.
