Stephen King Praises M. Night Shyamalan’s “Extremely Creepy” SERVANT
Split and Glass writer-director M. Night Shyamalan’s stellar Apple series Servant has already been given the go-ahead for season 2 – before the first season even began airing.
And today Mr. Stephen King praised the “extremely creepy” series over on Twitter, writing:
Personally, I loved the first three episodes of the series – especially the first episode which Shyamalan himself directed. And as a new father myself, the series is super scary.
The show holds an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads, “Though Servant’s slithering mystery often wanders into dark, crowded corners, its claustrophobic atmosphere, and powerful performances build enough tension to keep viewers hooked.”
Created by Tony Basgallop (Inside Men, What Remains, 24: Live Another Day) the “extremely creepy” series 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.
Shyamalan serves as executive producer and directs some episodes of the series, which stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Nell Tiger Free (Too Old To Die Young), and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows).
Shyamalan and Basgallop executive produce with Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, and Steve Tisch. Taylor Latham and Patrick Markey serve as co-executive producers.
