Apple renews 'Servant' before it premieres
Apple has confirmed a second season of M. Night Shyamalans "Servant" ahead of its series premiere on November 28.
The executive producer made the announcementon 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' on Friday, Engadget reported.
Directed by Shyamalan and created by Tony Basgallop, 'Servant' follows 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.
The psychological thriller is the fifth of Apple TV+'s original shows to receive a second-season pickup. 'Dickinson', 'For All Mankind' and 'See' also got early renewals.
Apple ordered two seasons of 'The Morning Show' right from the start, so its future won't be up in the air for a while yet.
According to Engadget's report, to some extent, Apple needs these early renewals. The continuation of Servant and other early shows will ensure that you have more to watch even if you exhaust the next wave of shows.
Meanwhile, Apple has delayed the theatrical release of 'The Banker' originally set for December 6 due sexual misconduct allegations levelled at Bernard Garrett Jr., the son of the character portrayed by Anthony Mackie in the film.
'The Banker' is one of Apple's earliest original movies for Apple TV+ and the story is based on the real-life story of two African-American businessmen in the 1960s who helped people to overcome racial barriers in banking.
