SERVANT S2 E1 DOLL 😊

The first season of SERVANT combined just enough M. Night Shyamalan suspense and mystery (SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE) while limiting the kookiness that plagued his later work (THE HAPPENING, LADY IN THE WATER). Season 2 picks up where season one left off, yet what’s missing are any “signs” of real suspense.

The plot device of taking a grieving mother made the first season a standout for Apple TV+ that audiences sadly overlooked last year. I am still all in, wanting to learn how husband Sean (Toby Kebbell) and wife (Lauren Ambrose) will actually cope with the loss of their son(s).

🤞the double crossing drama minimizes and the other worldly suspense creeps back into this eerie TV series.

The first episode is available on Apple TV+.
