It’s a twist! Apple TV+ has renewed M. Night Shyamalan’s “Servant” for a second season ahead of its series premiere next week on Thanksgiving Day, the executive producer announced during his Friday appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The psychological thriller is the fifth of Apple’s original shows to receive a second-season pickup, as four of the freshmen series that were available when the service launched on Nov. 1 have all already been renewed, including “Dickinson,” “See,” “For All Mankind” and “The Morning Show.” (“Morning Show” had a two-season order from the start, while “For All Mankind” was renewed ahead of the streaming service’s launch.)

Directed by Shyamalan and created by Tony Basgallop, “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.

In addition to Shyamalan and Basgallop, “Servant” is executive produced by Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch. Taylor Latham and Patrick Markey serve as co-executive producers.

The first three episodes of “Servant’s” 10-episode first season will drop on Apple TV+ on Nov. 28, with new episodes rolling out weekly on Fridays.

Apple TV+ is priced at $4.99/month. However, the service will be free for one year when you buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod Touch and a 7-day free trial is offered for new subscribers.
