Shyamalan’s ‘Servant’ Drops Full Season 2 Trailer

Servant–the small-screen success for executive producer M. Night Shyamalan–is heading into its second season (and 2021), with its first full trailer promising mysteries and horrors to come.

The terrifying trailer–which can be viewed on this page–offers a tantalizing peek into the continuing story of nanny Leanne Grayson and her unusual charge, as reported by The 10-episode Season 2 kicks off with two episodes on Jan. 15, 2021 on Apple TV+, with new episodes following every Friday thereafter.

Servant–which premiered Nov. 28, 2019 from creator and writer Tony Basgallop–starts six weeks after the death of the 13-week-old son of Dorothy and Sean Tucker. The couple hires a nanny–the aforementioned Leanne–to take care of their baby Jericho, described as a “reborn doll,” which Dorothy believes is her real child.

The show’s first season recounted how things rook a turn for the bizarre soon after the nanny comes on board. There were encounters with religious cults, ghosts, cannibalism and even the revelation that the doll may be far more than it appears–when it apparently comes to life.

Basgallop shed some light on the enigma that is the nanny during a recent interview. “With Leanne, it’s an ongoing reveal,” he said. “We don’t fully understand who she is and where she comes from–and her interpretation of who she is and where she comes from may not necessarily be the correct version.”

Basgallop hinted that there may be many layers to the character. “There’s so much to do with Leanne,” he said. “Constantly looking at her past is what’s going to guide her in the future.”

As for the doll-into-a-baby angle, Basgallop would only say there are “many different versions of Dorothy’s reality here and who this baby is. Do we believe this is a miracle? Does Leanne believe she delivered a miracle to the household?”

The first season of Servant–starring Lauren Ambrose as Dorothy, Toby Kebbell as Sean, Nell Tiger Free as Leanne and Rupert Grint as Julian–is now streaming on Apple TV+.
