Servant just became the first horror series on Apple TV+. The show is getting good reviews, and is even trending on Rotten Tomatoes.

Apple says this program is:

“A new psychological thriller from M. Night Shyamalan that 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 is an executive producer and directer of two of the first season’s ten episodes, including the pilot. The show was created and written by Tony Basgallop, who also penned Hotel Babylon and Berlin Station.

Servant is generating buzz

Reviewers have been generally positive about this offering. Entertainment Weekly said, “Servant is delivering the kind of giddy thrills you want from horror: Things are going from bad to worse for the Turner family, and I can’t help but enjoy it.

And it appears on Rotten Tomatoes‘ current list of most popular shows.

The first three episodes of of Servant are available now on Apple’s nascent streaming service. The remaining seven will appear weekly.

The show has already been picked up for a second season. When that will debut is not yet known, however.
