2021 not scary enough for you? Apple TV+ is here to help. On Friday, Apple debuted the first episode of season two of Servant. The creepy psychological thriller series from Tony Basgallop and M. Night Shyamalan spooked audiences with its first season about the supernatural goings-on involving “baby” Jericho and nanny Leanne.

Check out the season 2 trailer below:

The preview for episode 1 of the second season reads as follows: “Jericho and Leanne are missing. Dorothy devises a 72-hour game plan, while Sean and Julian continue hiding the truth.”

The second series promises to reveal the truth about Leanne Grayson, played by Nell Tiger Free. Other lead actors in the series include Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, and Rupert Grint. You can check out Cult of Mac‘s review here.

Season one, which is now available to watch in its entirety on Apple TV+, was positively received by audiences and critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a critical score of 81% and an audience score of 83%. Apple has already signed up for a third season.

Not the only new episode on Apple TV+

That’s not the only new arrival on Apple TV+ today. Season two of Dickinson continues with episode four, “The Daisy follows soft the Sun.” The preview reads: “After some time without news from Sam, Emily begins to suffer from writer’s block. To rediscover her inspiration, she ventures into the landscape.”

You can check out Cult of Mac‘s review here. Like Servant, the show’s first season is available for viewing in its entirety on Apple TV+. A third season has also been signed.

Available to watch on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ is available for $4.99 per month, or for free for one year if you buy a new iPad, iPhone, Mac or Apple TV. You can also get a reduced monthly rate if you subscribe to Apple One, the company’s bundle subscription service.

As Apple TV+ enters its third calendar yet (although, since it debuted at the end of 2019, and we’re at the start of 2021, it’s only been around for little over one year), it’s building up an impressive collection of shows and movies. You can check out our list of the very best it has to offer here.

Today, Apple also debuted an overhauled UI for the Apple TV+ web app. This brings it more into line with the aesthetics of the Apple TV app.
