SERVANT Creator Teases Season 2: “Nothing is gonna come easy for this family anymore”
Apple and M. Night Shyamalan’s super-creepy series Servant just aired its season one finale on Friday. And today, writer and creator Tony Basgallop teased the already-announced second season, saying, nothing is gonna come easy for this family anymore.
He tells EW: “There are all these things that cannot be justified.’ So in a way, it’s an uplifting ending for me: Miracles do exist, and there’s a chance to have your baby back. But on the downside, me being who I am and the show is what it is, we take it away at that moment. Now if they want it back, they’ll have to fight harder. Nothing is gonna come easy for this family anymore.”
Will season 2 venture, you know, outside the house?
Basgallop says: “I don’t want to break what’s working. We’ve always been open to if we need to or want to expand beyond this household, we can. It comes down to the story, and at the moment I feel there’s still a lot of stories to tell. I know it’s a horribly overused cliche, but the house is a character in itself. Everybody says that in a show, but I think we have a bit more claim to it after spending 10 episodes there without leaving. There are rooms in this house we haven’t opened yet. We haven’t explored every corner of this house, there’s a little more to show. As the show grows and develops, we have the freedom to open the world up, and when it feels right, we will. What I always want to avoid is establishing locations that are just to pass information. If we open another door, it’s an important door to go through. There’s a reason we’re showing you more of the world. We have to earn it. The house is so critical to everything we’ve seen, it would be jarring to just suddenly go somewhere else.”
