Servant season 4: Apple TV+ officially orders another season of Shyamalan series

We just saw the full trailer for season 3 of the Apple TV+ series Servant yesterday, and now the streaming service has announced that they’ve already ordered a fourth season of the show. This makes sense, because we heard a week and a half ago that the fourth season was already in active development.

Servant executive producer M. Night Shyamalan once said that his dream version of the series would consist of sixty episodes, but he later whittled that number down, telling Uproxx that “I outlined the whole series over the pandemic and figured out where I wanted it to go and how many episodes it would be. And it came out to 40.” Each season of Servant consists of ten episodes, so it will be reaching Shyamalan’s goal of 40 at the end of season 4… But if season 4 is to be the end of the series, Apple TV+ isn’t calling it the end just yet.

Apple TV+’s Matt Cherniss had this to say about the season 4 renewal:

Since the very first episode of Servant, audiences all over the world have loved buckling themselves in for this thrill ride, drawn into the cinematic, unsettling, twist-filled universe that M. Night Shyamalan has created. With each suspense-filled season, viewers have been able to experience the living nightmares of these compelling characters on an increasingly deeper level and we can’t wait for everyone to see what’s in store as this gripping mystery takes another surprising turn in season four.”

A psychological thriller series created by Tony Basgallop, Servant centers on 

a Philadelphia couple in mourning. An unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage, but also welcomes a mysterious force into their home. Following its suspenseful season one finale, the second season of Servant takes a supernatural turn. As Leanne returns to the brownstone and her true nature is revealed, a darker future for all lies ahead.

TV Line informs us that Servant season 3

picks up three months after the death of Aunt Josephine and the events of the Season 2 finale, and Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) is extra paranoid. The poor girl, who now seems well-ensconced in the Turner household, is having nightmares of her creepy “aunt” and the horrors she left behind in the Church of the Lesser Saints. Despite the family’s hopes for normalcy with their returned baby Jericho, it’s very clear that they’re not out of the woods just yet. Not even close.

Nell Tiger Free’s co-stars include Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, and Rupert Grint. Sunita Mani is joining the cast in season 3.

Servant season 3 begins airing on January 21, 2022.
