It was announced last week that M. Night Shyamalan has already mapped out release dates for his next two movies. They won't be in theaters until 2021 and 2023, but we won't have to wait that long to experience the thrills and terror associated with the man's legendary name. Today, we have two teasers for his upcoming mysterious new Apple TV+ streaming series Servant, and they are pretty creepy.
Servant will be one of the first new original streaming series coming to Apple TV+ when it debuts later this year. The show will take place in M. Night Shyamalan's signature city of Philadelphia, where most of his movies have been based. Though there is no indication that it is any part of a shared Shyamalan universe.
The story follows a young couple locked in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy rocks the vary foundation of their marriage, shaking up their relationship in unexpected ways. This wedge driven between the man and woman opens a door to a mysterious force that infiltrates their home. You get a sense of the terror and thrills in store from the first two teasers.
Servant stars Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell and Nell Tiger Free, and will premiere on November 1, which is the launch date for Apple TV+. Apple is actually bringing Servant to New York Comic Con next month for an exclusive look that only attending fans will be able to enjoy. Online fans may get a trailer that same day.
"A Night with M. Night Introducing 'Servant' on Apple TV+" is the official name of the event, which will occur on Thursday, October 3 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. M. Night Shyamalan is expected to be in attendance, and will bring along some exclusive first look footage. There will also be a Q&A discussion with the director and his cast along with some members of the creative team.
Apple TV+ will be available to everyone on November 1 through the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac and other platforms, including online at tv.apple.com. Aside from M. Night Shyamalan, you can also expect to see Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2) and Writer/Creator Tony Basgallop at the NYCC event. Things kick off at 8pm sharp, and it promises to be mostly spoiler free.
