Apple TV+ announced today that Servant Season 2 will be available on the streaming service on January 15, 2021. You can watch the first trailer for Servant Season 2 using the player below.
From M. Night Shyamalan (Glass, Split, The Sixth Sense), 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 first season of the psychological thriller premiered on Apple TV+ on November 28, 2019. The series stars Toby Kebbell as Sean Turner, Lauren Ambrose as Dorothy Turner, Nell Tiger Free as Leanne Grayson, and Rupert Grint as Julian Pearce.
The series was created by Tony Basgallop, who executive produces with Shyamalan, Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, and Steve Tisch.
Apple has also landed the rights to The Velvet Underground, a new feature documentary from Academy Award-nominated director Todd Haynes (Carol, Far From Heaven, I’m Not There) and Polygram Entertainment, produced by Motto Pictures and Killer Films in association with Federal Films.
The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock ’n’ roll’s most revered bands. The film shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture.
The Apple Original film features in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never before seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band’s creative ethos: “how to be elegant and how to be brutal.”
The Velvet Underground is produced by Polygram Entertainment in association with Federal Films, a Motto Pictures and Killer Films production. Haynes directs and serves as producer. The film is produced by Christine Vachon, Julie Goldman, Christopher Clements, Carolyn Hepburn and David Blackman.
And last but not least, Apple TV+ has teamed up with WildBrain, along with Peanuts Worldwide and Lee Mendelson Film Productions, to become the home for all things Peanuts, bringing together new original series and specials, along with iconic beloved specials to fans around the world, all in one place.
New animated Peanuts originals coming to Apple TV+ include a second season of the Daytime Emmy-nominated Snoopy in Space, and a slate of brand-new specials that will find the Peanuts gang marking Mother’s Day, Earth Day, New Year’s Eve and going back to school – all to be produced by WildBrain’s animation studio.
The new series and specials join the previously-announced The Snoopy Show; a brand-new Peanuts 70th anniversary documentary film from Imagine Documentaries and WildBrain; and the Daytime Emmy Award-winning Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10.
The original programs and new specials will also soon stream globally alongside iconic Peanuts specials, including A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The Halloween special will begin streaming globally on Apple TV+ on October 19, and will be available for free from October 30 until November 1 as a special treat on Apple TV+.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, Apple TV+ will launch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on November 18, and the special will be available for free from November 25 until November 27.
The Peanuts gang will also deck the halls with the premiere of A Charlie Brown Christmas, streaming exclusively on Apple TV+ on December 4. The holiday special will be available to enjoy for free from December 11 until December 13.
