'Servant' Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about M Night Shyamalan show on Apple TV+
'Servant' revolves around the mysterious nanny Leanne Grayson who is hired by Sean and Dorothy Turner to look after their baby
M Night Shyamalan is best known for his horror and suspense movies, so when it was announced that an entire show that is executive produced by him was set to release on Apple TV+ as one of the streaming platform's first shows, we were excited. True to form, 'Servant', created and written by Tony Basgallop, was as eerie as it was beautifully shot, with the first and last episodes being directed by Shyamalan himself.
'Servant' revolves around the mysterious nanny Leanne Grayson (Nell Tiger Free) who is hired by Sean Turner (Toby Kebbell) and Dorothy Turner (Lauren Ambrose), to look after their baby. However, the truth is far from what the situation seems to be. The cast is rounded out by Rupert Grint who plays Dorothy's brother, Julian Pearce.
The show was renewed for a second season ahead of the Season 1 premiere and is set to release in 2021. Read on to know more about the second season of 'Servant'.
The second season of 'Servant' will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, January 15, 2021.
When Leanne is hired, Sean tells her the truth about Jericho. The baby had died at just 13 weeks old, but because Dorothy could not cope with the loss, they use a reborn doll. While Sean and Julian are aware of the reality, Dorothy is not. However, when Leanne comes to live with the Turners to look after Jericho, strange things begin to happen. Leanne and Dorothy get on well at first, with Sean having doubts about Leanne.
Sean's suspicions of Leanne grow when the reborn doll is replaced by an actual baby. But while both Sean and Julian look for reports of missing babies, Dorothy goes on as if nothing has changed. Just when Sean begins to accept the new normal, Leanne learns that Dorothy was responsible for the death of the baby. Angry, Leanne leaves, taking the baby with her and rejoining her "uncle" and "aunt" who are actually cult leaders.
The second season of 'Servant' will take on a more supernatural turn as Dorothy and Sean look for Leanne. When Leanne does return to the brownstone, it is with the intention of making Dorothy pay for what she did. However, the darkness in Leanne begins to take over and her true nature is revealed, leading to a dark future for all involved.
