The critically-acclaimed workplace thriller "Severance" returns to Apple TV+ early next year, according to a teaser video released today.


Apple said the 10-episode season will premiere on Friday, January 17, and then one episode will follow every Friday through March 21.

The sci-fi series revolves around the mysterious company Lumon Industries, whose employees cannot recall any memories about their personal lives while they are at work. Similarly, the employees cannot remember anything about the workplace when they are out of the office. The show was created by Dan Erickson, and it has an ensemble cast starring Adam Scott, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Christopher Walken, and others.

The first season of Severance ended in April 2022, so fans will have waited around 33 months for the second season, which faced production delays for seven months last year as a result of the Writers Guild of America going on strike.

Severance is one of the most popular shows on Apple TV+. In the U.S., the streaming service costs $9.99 per month or $99 per year following a price increase last October, and it is included in all Apple One subscription bundles.

Great show, we just binged it a few weeks ago, so January doesn't feel too far away. But for those who have been waiting for years... must be tough! :p

I know Covid messed up the schedules, and then the strike did not help, but Apple teased this back in early 2023.

The problem with shows now is that a "season" is less than 10 episodes, and it could be YEARS between them. Kind of sucks to keep any momentum. Tehran season 3 is delayed until things calm down, and who knows when that will be.

Why is that "too bad"? When they have something that interests you, resubscribe, consume, cancel... rinse and repeat?
Precisely! That’s what I plan to do. Also, maybe they release it weekly to keep more subscribers active, but I’ll probably wait until March to see the whole season 1 and 2 one chapter after another. Not necessarily binge watching, but I like the freedom to watch as many chapters as I want. Also I hate cliffhangers, the only ones I deal with because it’s inevitable, are the season finales.

I guess I'm just dumb, but why so long? It's been shot, recorded, edited, produced. Why wait even longer? It's an apple show, what is keeping them from putting it up on their streaming service?

I am not sure what all the hoopla is about. I tried getting into about five different times. I think I saw two episodes but whatever floats your boat. The standout show on Apple TV for me is Foundation.
