Apple TV+ has released the highly anticipated official trailer to M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming psychological drama, Servant. The footage was previously presented at New York Comic Con, where the cast and crew of Servant joined in on a lively discussion about the show.
A Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home.
Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for Servant on Apple TV+:
5) The Ensemble Cast!
Grieving parents, Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose) and Sean Turner (Toby Kebbell), have hired young nanny Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) to help take care for their newborn child. As we previously mentioned, Rupert Grint will be playing Julian Pearce, a friend of Season (Kebbell).
4) A Half Hour Drama!
Writer Tony Basgallop (What Remains) has developed a three-act structure across 10 episodes. With each installment running at half hour, Shyamalan will direct the first two. Though the story arc plays out like a psychological drama, there will be numerous moments of comedy that break the tension.
3) The Building!
Each episode will be set within one location, which gives the show a theatre-like design. The trailer gives a great look at the stylish interiors of the Turner residence. Even though we’re looking at a set, everything about it feels like somebody would actually live there.
2) The Twist!
Where could the twist be coming from? What’s wrong with Dorothy (Ambrose)? What’s Sean Turner (Kebbell) hiding about the baby’s tragedy? Is Leanne (Free) messing with them? Why the hell is Leanne is willing to play this facade?
1) Apple TV+!
Since its launch, Apple TV+ now has The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston, the post-apocalyptic thriller, See, starring Jason Momoa, For All Mankind, and the Hailee Steinfeld comedy Dickinson about poet Emily Dickinson. And if it has M. Night Shyamalan on board, then sign me up!
Servant will premiere on Apple TV+ on November 28th, 2019.
