Apple today uploaded the latest trailer for its upcoming Apple TV+ series "Servant," which is a thriller created for the streaming service by M. Night Shyamalan.

Servant follows a Philadelphia couple who hire a nanny to look after their child following a tragedy, unknowingly setting a series of strange events into motion.



"Servant" will be the first major new series to land on Apple TV+ following its launch last week. Apple debuted "The Morning Show," "See," "For All Mankind," and "Dickinson" as the major shows to kick off the service on November 1.

While Apple plans to upload new episodes of its hour-long shows like "The Morning Show" every Friday until their season finales, "Servant" is premiering on a Thursday with 10 episodes that last for 30 minutes each. This will be similar to the way the 30-minute show "Dickinson" was released on November 1.

Head to the MacRumors Apple TV+ forum to join in discussions for all of the new shows that have launched, and will soon launch, on Apple's streaming service.

Well, that looks creepy enough! I guess that explains why the baby looked so weird in earlier blipverts. Hmmm. How much is this service again? :)

If this doesn’t include multiple Shyamalan twists where the nanny was dead all along or the child is actually their own parent then I’m gonna be sorely disappointed.
Shyamalan didn't write or create this - he's Director and a co-Executive Producer. His visual style is pretty sharp; it's his writing that always lets him down (with a few exceptions) so this should be a good thing.

"What if she wakes up? What if she remembers?" That don't seem normal. I started thinking something like the film Abre los Ojos.

I'm glad you pointed that out. As soon as I saw his name...I thought, NOPE! He's wasted enough of my time.
I might actually watch this, now.

Looks creepy AF. I might be able to get my wife to watch this.
Who doesn't love a mini trailer just before the actual trailer
It's a truly odd trend. Maybe it's to get people to look up from their phones before the actual trailer starts.
You do realize Apple isn't making these shows right? They're just distributing them.
That's true for all current content, but they're starting their own in-house productions soon.

Free for a year if you buy a new apple device.

Soooooooo condescending. Is there any need?

He's correct in that Apple could have decided to "distribute" more pedestrian and PG-13 fare, but they're not.

I have some ideas about what they are distributing, but will not discuss it in this forum (I mean, outside of this particular trailer, which is decidedly unlike all the other shows).
