The supernatural series is now streaming its second season, and we have some words with its creator/executive producer on the latest installment.

SERVANT was created by M. Night Shyamalan and Tony Basgallop, and stars Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell as “a Philadelphia couple in mourning after the death of their infant son, Jericho. To cope with their trauma, the pair brings home a hyper-realistic doll that helps them process their grief and hires a live-in nanny [Nell Tiger Free], which opens the door to strange and frightening occurrences.” Rupert Grint also stars in the show; Shyamalan here discusses the newest episode, “Cake,” and its director Lisa Brühlmann (BLUE MY MIND, CASTLE ROCK). New episodes of SERVANT premiere each Friday exclusively on Apple TV+, and you can watch them here.
