The second season of M. Night Shyamalan series Servant will arrive on Apple TV+ in January.

Servant, the Apple TV+ series from director M. Night Shyamalan, will officially return for its second season in January.

The thriller was one of Apple TV+’s first original programs and, of course, Shyamalan is well known for his love of dark, twisty stories.

The series follows the story of Dorothy and Sean Turner, a married couple who hire a girl named Leanne to work for them as a nanny in their Philadelphia brownstone. Simple story, right? Not so much. Because it turns out that their baby son, Jericho, who is very much not what he appears to be. But, then again, neither is Leanne.

The ten-episode Season 2 will premiere on Friday, January 11, with new installments set to follow weekly.  The series also dropped a teaser trailer promoting its season 2 release date — and highlighting some of the creepier and more disturbing moments from its first.

And the season 2 synopsis promises more to come.

"Following its suspenseful season one finale, the second season of the thriller takes a supernatural turn. As Leanne returns to the brownstone and her true nature is revealed, a darker future for all lies ahead."

Stars Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Nell Tiger Free, and Rupert Grint are all returning for season 2.

Servant is by far the darkest of AppleTV+ slate of original programming, which also includes shows like the period comedy Dickinson and alternate history drama For All Mankind. (No freakish dolls to be found on either of those is my point.)

The first season of ten episodes is available to stream on Apple TV now, and you’ve got plenty of time to catch up before the series returns early next year.

Next. Apple TV has already renewed Dickinson for a third season. dark
