INTERVIEW: Cast of ‘Servant’ Reveal Their Favorite Moments and How Their Characters Evolved

When you see the name M. Night Shyamalan attached to a project you go in expecting the unexpected. In the case of AppleTV+’s psychological horror Servant, he delivers on those expectations to the fullest. From minutes into episode one where the revelation that there’s something different about the Turner family baby, right up through the last frame of season two, Shyamalan has kept audiences on their feet. Poignant moments, humor, and suspense all expertly combined to deliver one of the most addictive series today.

Season three of Servant is no exception. It picks up months after the events of the previous season’s finale with the Turner family back intact with the return of Jericho. But, as always, behind the facade (or in this case behind the walls) something darker lies. While Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose) and Sean (Toby Kebbell) are overjoyed with the return of their child, and Julian (Rupert Grint) has turned a new sober leaf, Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) is in a more negative space, anticipating repercussions for her unexpected actions that closed out season two.

I recently had a chance to speak with the cast of the series. We did not go into spoilers or what to expect for this season simply because Servant is about enjoying the tense and unpredictable ride. Sure it full of spectacular performances, family drama, dashes of razor-sharp humor and plenty of chills, but that unpredictable quality is certainly part of the fun. So I have saved that experience for you.

The cast did discuss their favorite moments from the series to this point, the evolution of their characters and more. Fans of the series will be reminded just what it is they love about Servant, while those new to the series will get an idea of what all the buzz is about. Be sure to check out my interview with series executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and watch for a review of series three.

Season three of Servant is now streaming exclusively on AppleTV+. If you have not done so yet, be sure to check out the entire story of the Turner family with with first two seasons. You’ll be glad you did… even if it does provide a few nightmares.
